Skiff Restore Near Charleston

I've got an oldish Hewes Bonefisher in the Charleston area that needs some work - probably looking at gas tank replacement, exterior paint, interior gelcoat repairs (chips, gouges, etc.), new rubrail, complete rewire, possibly some trailer work, etc. Any recommendations for someone nearby who could take this on? I've seen On the Fly Skiff Co on IG but the only person I know who has used them had a very negative experience. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I had On the Fly install a bilge for me. They did a good job in the end, but the process of getting them to finally get my skiff in for the work was not good. Lots of promises on timelines, very little follow through. These guys have a very hard time returning phone calls.

They were supposed to be making a casting platform for me as well. Met with them in August and was supposed to be done in a few weeks. Here we are at the end of November and nothing. They go 4 weeks in between communication and nothing but excuses when you finally get someone to get back to you.

Didn’t mean to derail your thread, just a warning to those that are considering doing business with these guys.

I really think they probably mean well and have some good knowledge on what they are doing, but the horrendous lack of communication and follow through with their clients is enough for me to stay away for the time being.
