For a Marine Paint Specialist in Mazatlan, Mexico it's All In The Details

Who say's that nobody works on Sunday in Mexico?  The closed sign may have been posted and the receptionist was probably at the beach but Victor brought his family over to the Active Marine shop so he could put some finishing touches on a stripe job.

With jobs backing up the boys took to the yard to free up a slot for work coming in on Monday.  It's all in the details and this is another example of the crews dedication and the quality service they provide.  Guess there will be plenty of time for the beach when the season winds down.

Back to Work on "Swansong"

The crew worked overtime this week even though it was the Semana Santa holiday for most of Mexico.  All of the guys are family here and have shown that this business is their priority over the beach parties where many Mexican Nationals are spending their time.

Swan Song was in the shop for some hull repair, a bottom job, mast & hull repaint.  Here is a gallery of how it all went down... (Thanks Gloria!)

The Story of Active Marine Mazatlan - From a Customers View

With over 15 years of experience working for the most iconic yacht repair service in Mazatlan Active Marine is taking over where Total Yacht Works left off.  This is their story...

active marine mazatlan humble beginnings

Active Marine is a story is about a group of highly qualified boat repair and service technicians in Mazatlan, Mexico.  Until recently, they worked for the most successful repair center in the region. Unfortunately, a dispute between the owner and former partner lead to an iconic and reputable business shutting it's doors.  The closure left some of the most skilled workers in the region wondering how they would take care of their of their own families.  Thanks to their perseverance and some assistance from valued and trusting customers they are back in business and ready to write a new chapter.  The story is best told by their first customer who's boat is the namesake for Active Marine Mazatlan.

Active Marine Services Rises from the Ashes of Total Yacht Works - By John (Active Transport)

The photo at the top of this blog entry shows the team of workers who are former Total Yacht Works employees. Without the dust having settled on the problems we faced these folks forged ahead and took good care of us. From left to right the guys are Victor (painting Manager, David (mechanic) Ernesto (painter), Roberto (parts) Scott (gringo) and Margarito.

"The photo was taken under the bow of Active Transport with the travel lift in place to pick the boat up and drop it back in the water.

Since the events described in this blog post this team has established a new business to take over where total yacht works left off. They have rented the shop from Fonatur, the yard owner, and have named the business Active Marine Services.

Despite all the issues we have had with our haul out and repairs I would not hesitate to use this team again. They did not cause the problems but they sure fixed them.

The team stepped up to the plate for us and got our work finished without any shortcuts. I'm very confident in their capabilities and do not hesitate to recommend Active Marine Services to cruisers who come after us.

I also want to make it clear that we have no interest in this business despite the name they selected. We just want to share our positive experience with these men. "
