Boston By Air

My 2 cents (worth even less after taxes):

Re: Cape Cod Marine Surveyor

When I bought a boat at a yard in Falmouth 3 years ago, I used Rhode Island Marine Survey. They were more than willing to come up from Newport (twice, actually) and I was very pleased with how...

Re: Cape Cod Charter

I chartered through Swift repeatedly from 1998-2007 before we purchased our own boat in 2010, and I have nothing but good things to say about all my experiences. She represents a really nice...
