My family and friends have been bringing our boats to him for years, he is probably the best mechanic I've ever dealt with. When I go to him for sumerizing/ winterizing and whatever in between problems I have with my boat, I know he won't BS me about things that don't need to be taken care. He's also a part dealer, so that means you get the price around without the middle man fee. Sometimes there is a little bit of a wait to have your boat done and that's because EVERYONE knows to bring their boats to him. You get quality service and great prices from a family owned business. So, either bring your boat in early or be patient and know you'll have a boat working all summer long. Other reviews have said they brought their boat in a couple days before the 4th and had to wait a week. Hello! 4th of July weekend? Seafair? Doesn't everyone want a working boat during those weekends?! That's kind of the same thing as expecting to be your skiing/snowboarding equipment to be tuned during peak season and expecting be on the mountain the next day! You can't really give a bad review on a business doing such a good job that they are so busy. Besides, its never the mechanic's fault that you don't know how to take care of your own boat to where you bust the starter or blow up your engine from playing around in the weeds.

I think the guy that wrote the review here is the owner or something. This is place is terrible. The worst customer service, rude and inconsiderate. They over charge and will rip you off for as much as he can. Stay away from this guy!! They had my boat there for a week before the 4th and were rude each time I called to get an update. I get that it was the 4th and they were busy, but that is no reason to be rude to customers. Then they finally call me and tell me that there are all these things wrong and it is going to cost a ton of money and not be ready until the next week. This is after they told me when I first dropped it off it would be a few hours. I told them there was no way everything that they were saying was the case and that I know what is wrong with the boat. I asked if they were sure they were calling the right guy? With nothing else said the very next sentence this jerk said was if you don't like it come pick it up, your boat it'll be sitten outside. So I did, and took to Lynwood Marine where they fixed what was broken, the starter, for $200 and had to me the day I brought it in. If I had taken there first I would have had it for the 4th, not take the abuse or almost gotten ripped off. If they wouldn't have been so rude I would have believed them and spent the $1,500 they were saying I needed to. So I guess it is a good thing that they are the way they are.
