Kevin and his son Paul did a fabulous job on reparing a deep scratch on my bass boat. It has 3 different colors of metal flake fiberglass that they restored to look as good as new. I am VERY PLEASED with their work. I would highly recommend them for any of your boat repair work.. Thank you Kevin and Paul and crew.Tom Willis

Did great work. Helped me through the process. Of Course, everything always takes a little longer than you hope. But the work was top notch and guaranteed. Kevin even put some coating on another spot on my boat for free.

Being from out of state and not knowing who I should take my boat to for a gunwale repair, I did what most seem to do these days, a Google search. After reading the excellent reviews on American Boat Works, I decided to stop by and meet with them personally to discuss what I needed.I spoke with Kevin the owner and his son Paul and was completely impressed with their knowledge of fiberglass repair as well as the work I had already seen they had performed on other boats. But equally important, I knew I had met two honest businessmen just through conversation.Kevin and Paul patiently took the time to walk me through the repair process step by step as well as explain to me how it would all be handled with my insurance company. Afterwards, I was convinced these were the pro's I wanted to work on my boat.I got my boat back on schedule as promised and I was 100% satisfied. It was a beautiful fix and as far as I'm concerned their quality work is second to none. The materials and craftsmanship they put into my fix was better than factory standards and they backed their work up with a guarantee as solid as the repair they had made.I'll put it like this, if you are reading this and thinking about who you should choose to do your boat repair, don't think about it any further. American Boat Works is where it's at. You will not be disappointed!Thank you Kevin and Paul for the quality work you guys put into my boat. It's because of good people like yourselves that some of us can still have faith in American entrepreneurship. And one final thanks to you Paul for your service to our nation. Once a Marine always a Marine.Best personal regards

The American Boat works team did an out standing job totally repainting our 1974 46' Hatteras Sport Fish. In addition to the paint job, American Boat Works did the most professional job in fiber glassing the front windows. The restoration was done approximately eleven years ago and the paint has held up very well, so good the condition of the paint was a key factor that sold the boat recently.Keep up the good work, Jim and Cat Coats

My wife and I love our boat but we had a chronic stress cracking issue. We took our boat to Kevin Horn at American Boat Works to diagnose and fix our problems. He met us on a Saturday morning, which we really appreciated. He has the technology to see between decks and diagnose problems. He suggested a fix and price that we considered very fair. We developed confidence in Kevin to discuss a console change. I don’t think we appreciated the amount of work associated with changing a console but Kevin and Paul worked diligently to complete the project and ensure that everything worked properly. Throughout the process Kevin communicated with us consistently, helped us source the correct components, and he and Paul went above and beyond to deliver the boat on time. We couldn’t be more delighted with the completed project. It was on time with excellent quality and at a price that anyone would consider reasonable. We whole-heartedly recommend Kevin Horn and his team at American Boat Works!!!!!!!
