Harbor Island Marina, Inc. offers a full-service boatyard and a professional staff of people, who will repair your boat and get your engine running properly.  We regularly haul out and block boats with our 25-ton open-end travel lift and our 12-ton travel lift, setting them on land for repair or storage.  Our employees are knowledgeable in repairing, rebuilding, and installing both gasoline and diesel engines.  We will lift out and set engines into boats.  We have mechanics available who will repair Volvo Penta, Mercruiser and OMC stern drives.  We will paint boat bottoms with antifouling paint and finish-spray paint boat hulls and cabins.  Our employees will sandblast and perform blister repairs, as well as repair minor fiberglass and gel coat damage.  We will repair running gear, align shafts and redress other related problems.   We offer machine shop and welding services.  Harbor Island Marina will install marine equipment of all types onto your boat.  We step and unstep masts with our crane or with one of our travel lifts.  We do swaging and rigging.  Shrink wrapping services are available.  We offer cleaning, power-washing, waxing, and detailing services.  Other services are offered as well. 



Harbor Island Marina is a do-it-yourself boat yard and as such, will allow it's customers, family members and close friends to work on their own boats at the marina.  Customers must obtain permission from marina management to bring other help, any paid help or outside contractors onto the marina premises to work on their boats.  Should the marina management decide to allow competitive labor to work on a customer's boat, the laborer must have proof of liability insurance coverage.  A 10% commission will usually be assessed by the marina on all charges billed to the customer by such competitive labor.  

Customers must comply with all environmental regulations while working on their boats.  For example: tarps or drop cloths must be placed on the ground underneath the work area while sanding or grinding on the boat to catch particulate matter generated during such work.  Customers must use sanders with vacuum bags attached.  The marina will dispose of used oil, old fuel, batteries, and antifreeze for a small fee.  There are other rules that customers must follow to protect our environment.  Please read the notice posted outside on the engine shop which explains these environmental regulations further.  Should there be any questions about these rules, please ask the marina management. 

Customers are required to pick up and clean up the area around their boats after each and every time that they work on their boats.           

All boats on marina premises must be insured and customers must provide proof of insurance upon request.

our employees while they are working!  They have a job to do & they will not be able to complete their work if they are constantly engaged in conversation.
