Service and Storage

Service and Repairs

We service most makes, models and years of engines. (Please Note: We do NOT offer pickup or delivery services.)

  • Our service and repair shop has been serving the area since 1996.
  • Our technicians are certified marine mechanics and our shop is equipped with the equipment, tools and parts to work on your engine.

Many of our current customers originally visited our shop with their parents, and now they come in with children of their own. This is a true indicator of customer satisfaction.

Winterizing Rates, Boat and Pontoon Storage

We offer inside and outside storage.

  • Winter - store your boat/pontoon inside one of our sheds or outside on our lot which is gated and locked. We offer shrink wrapping.
  • Summer - consider storing your trailers, fish house, or snowmobiles with us.

Note:  Any Pontoon that is stored here needs to be on its own trailer or we will not store them – we will store the pontoon trailers in the summer for free – when you store with us.

Contact us by August 1st to reserve inside storage. You can use the online form or call us. (Returning winter storage customers will have a space reserved, but you must confirm by August 1st so that we know how many boats/pontoons we can accommodate.)

What our Customers Say

"This mechanic is straight forward and honest. He won't nickle and dime you to death trying to repair a chronic problem. He gets the diagnosis and repair right the first time. He uses a flat rate schedule so his parts and labor costs are very fair. This is the only mechanic I allow to work on my merc classic 4 cyl."
