NOW is the time to get a great deal on any boat service!

This was a great year for most of us in the marine industry, up untill now. I got busier than I could handle, often backed up three weeks. I keep close tabs with quite a few others in the industry, and have noticed over the years how it comes and goes for all of us, at nearly the same exact times.

Usually, we get slack right about when the kiddies go back to school. This year, we all stayed busy through that, as the weather was exceptional, which surely helps to keep us busy. It seems that 90% of folks only get thier boats serviced during the time they want to be using the boat, rather than getting projects done during the winter or other down time. Well, after several weeks in a row of crappy weather, I think most folks have hung thier boat keys up for the winter. From mechanics, to fiberglass guys, welders, etc, my friends are all saying, the phones have died! My phone has gone from ringing constantly, to dead silent for days, pretty scary stuff! For the first time this year, I have no backlog and can most likely take care of you immediatly.

So my point is, from now untill spring is your oppurtunity to get the fastest service, and best deals from any of your local marine guys! If there is something you've been wanting to tackle, now is the time for negotiations, to get a super deal! Please support your local marine guy this winter! Many of the smarter, more experianced salts already know this, but I think most folks miss the fact that winter is THE time to get a steal in the marine industry!

We will be twittling our thumbs during the next few weeks untill christmas..... and it will probably remain slow untill the first signs of spring roll in. Then spring becomes the busiest time of the year. Use this time to your advantage!

    I caught Tony in one of his busiest times a month ago and he did a full overhaul on my HEWES. Did awesome work at a great price and gave me his advice on every step,part,etc. I highly recomend him and when these guys are slow, you can most likely benefit all around the board. I have some pictures I will post after my work slows down bc in the mortgage business its always busy!!

    I'm not in a big hurry. thanks... you don't need to make a special trip unless you just don't ever have anything out this way. Don't want to put you out unnecessarily, but do want to get it handled. I'm not in a rush, but don't want to be forgotten about either. While you're here, I can probably come up with something to do that I can pay you a little for so it's not a total loss. Call before you plan to come out. I may buy a new radio or lights for you to install or something.

    Speaking of bargains on winter maintenance: What should I expect to pay (ball-park) for a replacement of a water pump on a '99 200 Merc outboard? I'd hasten to mention that it was done by the previous owner two seasons ago so the nuts/bolts are not corroded. Should be a straight forward job.
