"XL" truly Great yak, excellent value
This is truly a great kayak, I have owned several high end kayaks and this one has all of the option's I needed eg. storage, light weight, fast, stable. I take it in the ocean to catch red's and sharks and feel safe, and with the ability to paddle at a steady 4 mph (no wind) I can get to other fishing holes quickly. If your looking at a fishing kayak with storage this is a hard to beat option just be patient as it always seems to sell out fast and be on back order. We just bought the small one for our son, Happy fishing!
Customer Focused Service
I just wanted to pass along a recent (excellent) experience I had with Sean with the Gainesville Marina Service Group. I have a Mercruiser I/O and ran into a problem with the engine (gas in the exhaust). I went thru all the basic checks but could not find the cause so I called around to find a service group with computer diagnostics for the Merc. I called several before Gainesville Marina and they quickly gave me the Bring it in and well look at it reply. Thats okay to a point, but they did not ask about the details of the problem or what I had already checked. When I called Sean he took the time to ask several background questions and review some of the possible causes. It was...
Peace of Mind
If you are buying a boat, I highly recommend you hire Captain Charles Bullock to do the survey. He is honest and very thorough. He saved me a ton of money and a lot of heart ache. I almost purchased a boat that looked good on the surface but turned out to have significant problems. Hiring AMS is money well spent!!
First time dealing with Bay Marine - they are the nearest distributor of the brand of boat I wanted. They had the exact model in stock, negotiated a fair price and provided excellent customer service. I would certainly recommend them to other prospective boat purchasers.
After hearing good things from others I ended up taking my new and old jet ski's to JOA for service. Both times I got great service and an overall good attitude from the people that work there.
