These guys are HORRIBLE!
I took my boat to these crooks to repair the damage I inflicted on it hitting something submerged on the river. Nicolas Parker the owner/extortionist said he could get the job done in 3 to 4 weeks, depending on how fast the insurance company did their thing. After 3 weeks these scam artists hadn’t even touched my boat beyond the estimate they prepared for my insurance company. This is where it all went terribly wrong. I dare asked head thief and owner Nicolas what we could do to honor his 3 to 4 week time frame? This liar/con man blamed the delay on the insurance company (the insurance company did their inspection, processed it and cut a check in 3 days, they were great!) and said it would take another month. Then he shouted my time frame was unrealistic, which was really his time frame and said you could come pick up your F#**#@! boat. I told him I didn’t want to do that but 2 months was unreasonable. Of course, he replied with, you can pick your F#**#@! Boat in the morning. I agreed that would be better and said I’d be there when he opened. Nicolas presented me with a bill for $1365.00 for estimate time and $175.00 a day storage fees and told me if I didn’t pay I wouldn’t get my boat back. $175.00 a day storage? Are you kidding me? When I pointed out the work order I signed didn’t have any charges I might be responsible for on it he proceeded to write the $1365.00 on it and said “it does now” and slid it towards me. I had to pay this thief to get my boat back $1365.00 in one dollar bills. When He pulled it out to the front for me to pick up it was filthy back to front with all the seats and other parts stacked in the open bow almost to the top of the tower. He didn’t even have the boater decency to keep it covered or the business ethic to at least put it back together. My profile picture is of the boat when I picked it up. To add insult to injury, when I took it to a reputable shop they said River City Boat Works could not have possibly done the job for what they quoted.
