Post Dive Services - Chesapeake Bay Area?

I have never hired a dive service to clean our boat and have nothing to compare with except some verbal recommendations. In years past when we were at a marina, I would arrange for a quick haul, power wash, and splash.

Perhaps we could create a resource or consumer report for the Middle/Upper Chesapeake Bay area for reference?

Company Name:_________

Services Provided: __________

Service Area: ____________

Cost: ______________

Rating: 0 - 5 (5 being excellent)

I would NOT use this guy. I did in 2009 and was not happy. Lots of large barnicles still firmly attached to the bottom. $100+ for a 25 footer and the job wasn't done right.

Re: Dive Services - Herring Bay/Herrington Harbour Area?

I'm resurrecting this old thread, currently looking for diver recommendations to bottom clean a boat in Herring Bay (Herrington Harbour). Thanks in advance.

Re: Dive Services - Chesapeake Bay Area?

I still use Diver for hire. I don’t think Patrick will do it out in open water but you can ask.
We are a “Clean Md Marina” , what’s HH elf with divers.? Or are they just trying to make money on short hauls
