I have had the pleasure of having Capt. Tom deliver our boat to and from my house in Mantoloking. He is extremely knowledgable, and careful when it comes to driving our boat. He is quick to respond to messages and will discuss the best option in regard to weather to ensure the safety of your vessel.
