Judy is our office manager and she will greet you with a smile the first time you come in the office, and remember your name every time you come back.  She's the backbone of the organization, keeping track of work orders, work racks, technicians, and bookkeeping.  If Judy is not in the office, you can be sure she is off  traveling the world on one of her fabulous vacations.

Dave provides gelcoat, fiberglass and many other services to our customers. He has been fixing boats most of his life.  His obsession with boats began while growing up in the Lakes Area of Northwestern Minnesota. Dave honed his skills as a craftsman while owning his own construction company which built custom homes in the Land of 10,000 lakes. Dave and his wife, Barb, ended up in Key West on their sailboat in 2000.  When Dave is not working on boats, he is playing the steel drums in his duo "Island Time."

Bill  has been around Key West forever, and wears two hats at Boat Services Group.  As our service manager, Bill interfaces with customers and our technicians to ensure optimum quality and turnaround  of each work order.  As our parts department manager, Bill  can track down even  the most obscure part through his vast network,.   When Bill  is not helping customers with their boats, you'll find him working on his own boat.

The owners of Boat Services Group, Michael Gavito and his wife, Jo McKinney have lived in Key West since 2003.  Michael's background in boat service is extensive.  He is a certified ABYC  marine electrical technician, qualified for boat refrigeration, air conditioning, anything electrical, and lastly, his first love, electronics.
