Live on the water with boat at my steps. Don’t like to trailer it. Sharky & Dockside solved that problem & made it all too easy with smooth professionalism & a serious interest in me as a customer. I appreciate that.

Very trust worthy with anything. You can depend on him to do the job right. If you ever need your boat fixed for the upcoming fishing seasons, he is the man to call!! He will get the job done quick and right. If there is any problem that he finds he will call you first then, he will find the right part to fix it!! I would totally recomend calling him to fix your boat. Never has rediculous prices only reasonable. Never will leave your boat a mess. Very friendly. I have known for twelve years…. Oh wait this awesome man is my dad that’s why!!

In this day and age when it is sometimes so difficult to get service people to come out when they are supposed to and do what they are supposed to at a fair price, Sharkey and his guys at Dockside are a breath of fresh air.
I’d recommend him to all my friends on Diversion for service and repair in the slip. Thanks Sharkey!!
Eric Wagoner

Derek is honestly the best there is in my opinion. I had taken my boat to several dealers chasing the same problem and costing me a fortune all season long and nobody could tell me what the problem was. Derek came out and repaired it with confidence and the rest is history. DYS is the only one working on my boat from now on, Thanks Derek .
Matt Tramonte
DYS is definetly one buisness to keep handy in your address book if you own any type of watercraft. If you are looking for someone who is reliable and an honest professional then look no further than Derek at DYS. I can honestly say that I will never take my watercraft to any dealer for service as long as Derek is around. Fair price, honest positive professionalism and dependable. What more can you ask for. Thanks Derek!

Excellent service, dependability and reasonable prices
Yes
I have known Derek for years and worked with him at Ascension Marine. In fact, he is the only reason that I would bring my boat there. Now that he is with Dockside, his service is even better and I am much happier. He not only provides excellent and affordable service and repair, but educates me on preventable problems that I could experience later. Can’t get any better than this

I had problems while I was fishing in Grand Isle. Not only did Derrick take the time to try and help me with my problem, but took my lower unit back with him to fix it. He came highly recommended by a friend. Now I know why. I’ll highly recommend his services.

Repairs and Annual Maintenance
Ethical, Honest and reasonable pricing
Yes
Many people have a difficult time finding a good, honest, ethical boat (and car) mechanic. Search no more ! Derek has not only provided me with excellent service over the past 10 years, but he also educates me on the repairs and how to better maintain my boats. I have refered Derek to at least 15 other boat owners, all of whom have grown to trust him competely and value his knowledge. Professional, honest, convenient, experienced, polite and reasonable pricing … no one else will ever work on my boats.

generator problems, fuel delivery issues, engine service
Prompt, honest service. No hassles. No excuses.
Yes
Derek went to bat for me when dealer felt they were through with the problems I was having. He shows when he says he will. He expertly and honestly evaluates the problems and explains the what’s and why’s. I don’t have to haul my boat out to get it serviced, and that’s huge in itself. I have peace of mind that my boat is ready to go when I am. You definitely need to give him a shot.
