Our experience with Inlet Marine has been nothing short of spectacular from day one. Chuck Archer, Josh and the crew move at lightening speed and do high quality custom work. Sound to good to be true? yeah we thought so too until we saw it with our own eyes. Our project was not an easy one, there were a lot of obstacles in the way. Satisfying the three governing authorities, complying with the 25% MLW while still being able to negotiate a 30 ft boat into the slip was a tall order. Chuck was unrelenting and reassuring the whole way through the process until we were able to get the building permit. It's important to note that this was an 8 month process with more than a half a dozen drawings submitted to the city and VMRC. Chuck also worked with us and rearranged his schedule so that we could start construction shortly after obtaining the building permit . Once the guys got the go ahead the next day there were what seemed like 100 floating pilings right off the waterline at our house. Everyday I came home from work it was like an army had been working the day. I had to take a 6 day business trip in the middle of it, when I got back it was 75% complete.
Inlet stuck to their bid and did not nickel and dime us at all. Chuck also made suggestions along the way like the triple rope railing (which turned out Gorgeous) and the space they built for a dockbox, rub railing, lighting he took a vested interest in making sure the pier was everything we wanted it to be and more. It was a pleasurable experince from start to finish and the end product is a show stopper! We just had out house warming party and our friends and neighbors went out to look at it in the rain and all commented on how nicely it was done. Susan at Inlet Marine was also a pleasure to work with with the administrative end. Hats off to Inlet Marine! If you want to have top quality work done without spending a fortune or being nickel and dimed Inlet is a sure bet. Reliable, Honest, High Quality, Custom, are just of few of the words I would use to describe them. The finished pictures should be here on the FB page soon.
