Do you Sell New Motors?
How Busy are you?
We are generally booked up to 2 weeks ahead from the moment you call. In the busy season (June to Sept) it might be a 3 week wait. But if it is an emergence give us a call and we will see what we can do.
So the sooner you give us a call, the sooner we will be able to get your repairs done and you can be on your way to cruising the seas.
We do suggest that when you book in for your winterize, that we do all yearly maintenance first and if we see any problems we get to them then so in the spring you can just launch your boat and away you go trouble free.
Are all the Boats in your Yard for Sale?
Our consignment boats are always at the front of our lot. Anything behind the rope is in for repair.
Please stop into the office and we will give you a full rundown on anything we have on consignment and answer any questions you may have./h3>
Do you Repair Trailers?

- adjust your trailer,
- do your brakes,
- grease wheel bearings,
- check and replace wiring and lights.
We can also change your rollers to bunks.
What is your shop rate?

When can you start working on my boat?
We will book you in as soon as possible, at times we are quite booked up but we will do our best to accommodate your needs. We also keep a cancellation list on hand in case we have a no show or someone cancels. Just let our friendly front end girls know you would like to be on the list when you book, and you never
What is included in a ”winterize” ?
When you book in for a winterize, we like to make sure come spring it’s as easy as putting your boat in the water and going. Outboard winterizing consists of; replacing gear oil, removing prop to lube and inspect the seals and shaft, greasing ALL lube points, checking and recording compression, greasing steering linkage, running up and inducing storage sealer, inducing fuel stabilizer, checking the spark plugs, and batteries, and draining carbs. Inboards winterizing consists of; replacing gear oil, removing prop to lube and inspect shaft and seals, inspecting hoses and belts, checking and recording compression, inducing fuel stabilizer, running up and inducing storage sealer, draining all raw water areas, backfilling with environmentally friendly RV antifreeze, lubing the steering linkage, checking spark plugs and batteries, and checking all fluid levels.
We also recommend getting a full service and/or oil change at the time of your winterize so you are 100% confident in turning the key and going in the spring. During this booking, it’s also a great time to make the mechanics aware of any issues or concerns regarding your boat/engine.
Do you sell used parts?
Yes! However, a lot of our used inventory is not on site, so it may take a few days to get an answer for you whether we have it or not.
How much does upkeep cost on the average boat, annually?
Just average upkeep (not including issues that may arise) runs around $100.00 per month annually, and you may just have some left over at the end of the year!
Do you sell new motors?
Absolutely! In September of 2015, we decided we weren’t crazy enough and chose to add onto our business by becoming a Mercury dealership. We have a variety of motors in stock, and anything we don’t have, we can get in for you.
What will it cost to get it done?
Without physically seeing the boat/motor it is near impossible to give an accurate estimate on work to be done. There are so many variables to consider, such as access, ease of removal of parts, corrosion, salt build-up, etc. We can do our best to give a guesstimate, but it will never be completely accurate.
May I speak to a mechanic?
We are always more than happy to let you speak to a mechanic, however a lot of the times they are upside down or backwards in a boat, or with a customer, but we are more than willing to take a message and have them call you as soon as they are available.
Do you do service calls?
We prefer you come to us, as it is more cost effective for you as we do have to charge for the time it takes to load up, and drive to the location, as well us return to the shop and un load. Also, at the shop the mechanics have access to every tool imaginable to do the job right. Another thing to keep in mind is WCB requires 2 mechanics for a call out, so you would be billed for both their times.
Are you open on Saturdays?
We are open and happy to serve you on Saturdays from 9-2 to help accommodate those that work Monday-Friday jobs. However, during winter hours (starting October 1st) We are closed on Mondays and are always closed on Sundays and statutory holidays.
What certification levels are your mechanics?
We have a broad range of experience in our mechanics. Dean is fully ticketed and has over 38 years in the trade.
