This marina never stands by its word and the mechanics are not skilled. The over charge for everything. Can anyone recommend a good boat mechanic.

Ron has always treated me well. I really don't know how anybody CAN'T be skilled in working on marine equipment as you either have a mercrusier or a Volvo Penta out drive. You have gm motors, chrysler or ford engines and thats it. No big mystery here. I'm sure with a little bit of experience one can be skilled at working on them.

And one more thing: nobody on that lake has cheaper summer dockage than Ron.

He saved some guy who was sinking on the north shore 3-4 years ago. It was early April and nobody had their boats out and he was able to get one going to go rescue the guy.

I was overcharged as well, next time i need work ill get multiple quotes in WRITING. Ronny is confused. He tells you one price (verbally). And its never the same as the final.

I've had my boat and waverunner stored at and serviced by this Marnia for several years. The service has been excellent and I've never had any problems.

I broke down once and they came and towed me right away. They always get me in and out of the water when I want it each season. I think they're great.

I would highly recommend then.

We have docked our boat there for many years, had it worked on by the marina and had it stored there and we have never had any problems.

when you get an estimate, it's exactly what it is..if you need additional parts that they can't visually see what would you want them to do..not install the parts that you twisted up? A very easy solution..take it someplace else, they really dont need your business

Boat repair is expensive.It is not uncommon for repairs to go above the estimate in marine repair no matter where you go.Thats why most boaters eventually start doing their own repairs.

First things first WHY did you pay? They did something you did not ask them to do. Shops just cant do something and tell you sign on the dotted line at the end. Thats what the little customer approval box is. Its your right to dispute something. If they refuse to release your boat call the cops and just wait tell them I told them to do x y and z and they wrote the alphabet and are now holding the boat till I pay chances are the shop will hand you the keys walk away with their tail between their legs and you can go on your merry way

They ALWAYS call if you need further work. The origional poster either didnt understand the work order or is just creating crap about the marina. These people care about their customers !!!!
