Each issue will feature a member of the OceanLink staff.


Dotti Lama 

The first of April marked Dotti’s 15th year anniversary working at Ocean Link.

Her trained eye for detail and perfection along with her strong work ethic are what we, and our customers, love about her.  


Her primary work uniform consists of white Tyvek coveralls, but that doesn’t keep her from wearing sparkly earings and a big smile.

Dotti meticulously preps and finishes interior and exterior painted and varnished surfaces. She also can take care of many other cleaning, maintenance and replacement needs. 


 Interior Varnish


Although the work Dotti performs usually starts out dirty, the finished product always shines, as evidenced by the photos in this newsletter of a few of the boats she maintains.


If you would like help keeping your boat in the best condition, give us a call today: 401 683-4434.






Featured Services
Spring Commissioning 


We keep track of all the service we provide to each customer and custom craft an appropriate spring commissioning list accordingly.


We are pleased to handle as much, or as little, of the work as the owner desires. We even welcome do-it-yourselfers by offering guidance, parts, and hardware.


Step-Aboard and Go!


Do you like to have your boat ready to go when you step aboard?


Some of our customers are on a regular wash-down schedule of every week or every other week, while others call to give us a few days’ notice.


We can have everything cleaned for you – inside and out. We can also fill your fuel tanks and make the bunks if you wish.


Whatever level of service you require, we are here to provide it…just ask!

Hello Again,


We had a great time at the Maine Boat Builders Show in March. It was good to see many of our current customers again and to meet new ones too. Thanks for stopping by our display booth, which is shown in the photo above.


Are you finding our newsletter of interest? We hope so. If there is anything in particular that you would like us to talk about here, please let us know. We would love to feature you enjoying your boat while utilizing something you purchased from Ocean Link. Email your photo and a short description anytime. Thanks!

Powering Up for Another Great Season!



The owner of this Freedom Legacy 40 power yacht has been a “Full Service” Ocean Link customer for over a decade.

Our crew winterizes and commissions all of the systems aboard, arranges for indoor storage, maintains all the cosmetics including varnish, paint, polishing and more. We installed a watermaker when he first purchased the boat, refrigeration a few years ago, and last year we performed major engine service.

“Ocean Link has been extremely responsive to my needs. I can be pretty demanding and they always meet my high expectations.”      – Chuck O’Leary


Dotti Waxing Hull

The owner of this San Juan 48 Flybridge yacht also allows Ocean Link to handle all his maintenance. In fact, this is the third boat he has entrusted to us.

Note that the hull is so shiny it perfectly reflects the sailboat on stands next to it.

If you’d like to see equal time given to sailboats, email us your photo and Ocean Link endorsement.
