A Team of Seasoned Marine Mechanics Always on Call

Our Facility

Conveniently located at Desmond Marine, right on the Black River, you can access us via road or water. Desmond offers a full-service marina with everything you need from gas to a custom fish cleaning station and of course, a service company, The Boat Docs! At The Boat Docs, we have access to the equipment that can get your boat moved in or out of the water to do any type of work or lake test that is necessary.

Our Experience

With over 20 years of experience in marine mechanics, The Boat Docs have been successfully serving Michigan boaters since 2005. We recently celebrated our 10 year anniversary at our Port Huron location at Desmond Marine on the black river.

Meet your Chief Cosmetologist: Kevin Umlauf

Detailing since 1989, Kevin has polished and shined cars, motorcycles, semi-trucks and boats. He has managed several detail shops and even ran his own detail business for three years. Over his 30 year career, Kevin has mastered the art of detailing and truly is exceptional at bringing boats to an impressive mirror-like finish. In 2016, he joined The Boat Docs and now manages all of the detail jobs here. When he isn't polishing boats, he enjoys spending time on his own boat with his wife.
