Titusville - the marina next door

Jeff Belford of Boaters Edge will make sure you get satisfaction
Westland Marina and Boatyard is next door to the Titusville Marina. They are also the home of Boater's Edge which provides service on marine engines. Most recently, I had them replace my aft oil seal on my Volvo diesel along with the dampener. Since they are right next door, the mechanic just walked over to my slip, very convenient. They are very reasonable and will guarantee customer satisfaction. They have serviced my diesel three times over the past two years and I've been very happy with their service.

In case you need a haulout, Westland has one!
The boatyard here has a travel lift which comes in handy if you need your boat hauled. I used it once when I needed the prop looked at for damage. It turned out it was fine but it was nice to know it was okay. The travel lift was big enough that I didn't have to remove any canvass on my 42 ft Beneteau sailboat.

Westland has a nice boaters' lounge too
We are just counting the days until we go north for the holidays. It's nice and warm down here with temperatures in the 70's during the day with not much wind, although that may change over the weekend. We have a few odds and ends to do on Saturday but on Sunday, it's a major packing day. I'll pick up the rental Monday morning. We'll load it up and move out as soon as possible, up to cold weather!
