2019 was a very good year for James Boat and Fiberglass Repair - a very good year. But in many ways it was also very challenging. What we've learned is, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger! Ok, maybe that's from a song, but you get the idea.
Last year in an effort to expand our horizons and offer a storage solution for many of our clients, we had some highs and had some lows. In the end we decided that Dixon was a better place for us, and an outside partner wasn't right for us. What WE do, we can control.
So, as 2020 begins, we have reestablished ourselves back in Dixon, where we began. Not only is Dixon the perfect location to service our main areas of concentration - the Delta, Greater Sacramento and the Easy Bay - but we ended up with a two-fer. That is, we have our large warehouse to work on and house the vessels we are transforming, but we added a showroom right near the freeway, with excellent access and visibility. That should aide us in providing great service and easy ingress and egress for our clientele.
We'll get some pictures of the new place and post them soon.
In the meantime, now you can come see and interact with us directly at the showroom at 430 Gateway Dr, Dixon. It's right off the freeway (I-80). You can even drop your vessel there and we'll take it out to our workspace for you. Easy peazy!
In addition you can check out our Upholstery Shop (right there at Gateway) and even see some Accessory options there. We hope you enjoy the change and new access, and it provides a superior customer service experience for you!
We'd like to thank those who have done business with us in the past and appreciate all your referrals. It's YOU who drive our business forward and allow us to continue to grow and provide more for you along the way.
Thank you from all of us at James' Boat and Fiberglass Repair, and Happy New Year!
Oh, one last thing: It's also a reality of doing business with the public that no matter how well we do, sometimes a client might be dissatisfied. We NEVER want that, but at times, however infrequent, it happens.
We want you our clients to know, that we strive to do the right thing EVERY TIME, and ALWAYS want you to be completely satisfied with your interaction with us. If we ever fall short, please know that we value your input and will always reach to resolve every issue.
Thank you again for your business!
For those of us who love boating, we tend to take good care of our boats. Wiping her down, covering her for the Winter, and similar actions to keep her ready for the next trip out.
Sometimes though, things happen out there, and even on occasion accidents occur. Regardless of mishaps, Father Time can take his toll on our vessels, and they simply get a bit "dated".
Fortunately, either thing is fixable. In the case of this recent job, this 2004 Maxim 29E had an accident, AND was a little dated.
So, we fixed up the damaged fiberglass and then went to the task of updating this beauty to the potential boat she could be.
In this case, we completely reupholstered the inside and added new SeaDek flooring. We built custom loungers for the bow that are both comfortable and perfectly situated for that stellar summertime tan.
We remade the cabin, with upgrades everywhere, including a LARGE flat screen TV for your own entertainment area. Then, after spiffing her up everywhere externally, we gave her both above water and below water lighting that just looks, well, stunning!
Check her out!
Give us a call at (530) 723-3410 today and let's talk about the possibilities for YOUR baby!
For the past several years James' Boat and Fiberglass Repair has been operating in large warehouses. Cold, but useful places. Plenty of room to work, and store our client's vessels.
Announcing, for the first time, a dedicated "showroom" where we can house our stellar Upholstery Shop, and use the space to show off some of our eye-popping work!
Our new place is located at 430 Gateway Dr, in Dixon. The building is brand new and we're very excited to have this opportunity!
Our warehouse is still out on Liberty Island Rd, and we'll continue to tackle the fiberglass and other large scale duties out there. Note that we have both addresses listed at the bottom of our website.
So, stop by and say "hello"! We'd love to see you there, and look for a special event likely in the Spring to kick things off for the season. In the meantime, take advantage of the "off season" to get your boat dialed in for the upcoming boating season. Great start with the stream of rain we've had lately!
This MasterCraft came to us in rundown shape, needing a bit of TLC. So, we got to work and revamped her!
The exterior got a polish and rubdown of the body, and new graphics were added. Viola! New looking boat! But we weren't finished.
Time for the interior. We covered all the seating areas in bright red with gray accents to match the exterior graphics. Then we added the beautiful matching SeaDek flooring to the floor of the boat and also the rear swim deck. And just like that, she looks brand new!
Now is the PERFECT time to give your boat some of it's OWN TLC! It's the off season and while we are busy, it's not quite as crazy as during the summer months. Why not give you and your crew a present for Christmas? Spruce up your vessel and you don't have to buy a brand new boat to have one that looks (and performs) brand new!
CALL James at (530) 723-3410 and let's talk about your project!
As we have continued to grow our business, we have decided to get a brand new facility for our dedicated Upholstery Shop! It's closer to the freeway for easy in and out, plus its a brand new facility which will allow us to do amazing work for our clients.
We will also do accessories installations, detailing and some other related work there as well.
The new address is: 430 Gateway Dr, Dixon, CA 95620
As our repair shop is a large warehouse out in the countryside, this will make it MUCH easier for our clients, both repeat and new, to check in with us.
Thank you to ALL of our wonderful customers! It's YOUR continued loyalty to James' Boat and Fiberglass Repair (and Upholstery!) that has helped us grow into one of Northern California's premier boat repair facilities!
Come see us, we are right off the freeway in Dixon!
James' Boat and Fiberglass Repair has moved again! This time we've gone back to Dixon, in a nice large facility where we can handle the volume we've been getting and have our Upholstery shop able to do it's thing too. This is great news for us and for our current and future customers!
We lose the in on the storage, but we'll be able to perform all of our growing list of tasks beautifully and successfully here in this new facility.
Thanks to all for understanding and we look forward to seeing you soon!
By the way, since the season is winding down as we move into Fall, why not take advantage of the time and get those upgrades to your boat that you've been planning to do but just didn't get around to?
Maybe it's time to get that new upholstery you've been putting off? Or update the graphics on your boat to modernize her a bit? Or maybe get that faded or torn carpet out of her and replace with a brand new Sea Deck floor?
Now's the time! Give us a call today and let's talk about how we can get your baby spruced up now while you aren't using her and get her ready for the season next Spring!
Check out this 2010 Malibu Wake Setter. It's had a new fresh air exhaust system installed, and now ready for ultimate performance on the water!
Check out this job just completed that features the latest new flooring called "Sea Deck" - a non-slip foam surface that is both beautiful and lasting! Fade resistant too!
On this 2006 Bayliner 217 deck boat, with lots of flooring surface as well as flat deck space to cover, it's really the star! Of course the new upholstery from our in-house shop is beautiful and colorful too. This deck boat looks brand new, and really in some ways is BETTER than brand new!
Want to dress up your vessel? Give us a call and let's make it happen for you!
Oh, and let's not forget the fiberglass repair that was also done on this boat. It was involved in an accident (another boat struck it in the rear quarter on the right side) so that was repaired as well. Here are a couple of "before" pictures so you can see what was fixed. Wouldn't have known, would you?
In an effort to stay modern and visually pleasing and maintain great ease of use of our website, we've gone through a facelift!
We'd love to get your feedback! As we have grown with you over the years, and the list of our loyal customers has grown leaps and bounds, we want to make sure you love to come back to see what we're up to as well as what we can do for you as our portfolio of services has increased.
We are excited for the present, but also the future. There are plans in the works for things to come, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, if you or anyone you know needs any fiberglass work done, you KNOW where to come. Of course we still have our premium in-house upholstery shop, ready to give your boat or other vessel a new look. We have great new products and colors to choose from, so feel free to stop by the shop and check them out!
Thank you to all of you for making this the best boat repair in the East Bay and Sacramento Valley (and Delta) today! We do it for YOU.
Recently we sent a team of ours to school....Centurion and Supreme Boat school that is! This was intense training and necessary to keep up with the new technology in the latest vessels and for honing our own skill set as well.
We are pleased to report that we are now Centurion and Supreme Certified, to add to our already accomplished and trained staff specializing in Malibu, Wakesetter, Ride and Response, Nautique by Correct Craft, Master Craft - including XStar, and of course a Roswell Marine Authorized Dealer offering the finest in marine accessories for your vessel.
Here's the proof!
So remember us here at James Boat and Fiberglass Repair, now in Vacaville, when you need anything for your boat - from new upholstery to adding the finest in marine accessories like towers, stereos and much more - or even if you need a secure and safe place to STORE it for the Winter! We do it all and we do it right the first time!
