    I can do all my basic stuff fine but I have a few fussy things that need an expert repair guy.
    Anybody have someone they can recommend?
    I'm in RI.
    bside Tom Hogan(who is the best imo, doesnt do repairs very often anymore if at all) I havent found anyone near me who can do the detail oriented stuff very well.

    Sent a message to a Really skilled buddy in Hope Valley. Kris knows him as well. He's hesitant about getting back in the game but I know he needs the loot. And his work is top notch.

    thanks for the suggestions I'm aware of Kevin and Jason and Bob J. they are all capable of quality work. Anyone have suggestions of ding repair folks outside of RI.
    maybe this thread could be a angies list for ding repair lol better yet I'll start a new thread.

    A local boat guy I used who was very reasonable and good, "retired". Still working on him to pull a Gordie Howe and make a come back.
    I have never used him, but Ed Camara in LC has been in the game a long time and I'm told does nice work. How about Keith at Twin Lights in MA?

    Keith is great in my experience, but isn't thrilled about ding repair, much less color matching.

    He does superb work, though - best I've come across and he appreciates and treats vintage, valuable boards with care.
    Very trustworthy.

    Might be worth a call.

    Ding Shack in Newport.
    Great work, fast turn around, reasonable pricing. They’ll do anything from a small ding to a delam to build you a custom.
