This repair facility is run by a husband and wife team. The husband is a very nice man, knowledgeable mechanic, and overall good person. His wife however, who runs the store, writes up service orders, and does the billing, does not appear to be an honest person. I took my boat there for a noise in the outdrive. The only estimate I was ever given was $1300.00. About a week later they were done, and I was shocked at the price. Well over $2000, with no prior approval of the inflated cost. She insisted that I had approved it. I was not brain dead, but it was either pay her or not get my boat back and go battle in court. They had identical (to my boat's) rebuilt outdrives for sale for much less than the repair to mine, and the price included installation. An honest shop would have mentioned this when they realized how much the repairs would be. And, to top it all off, my outdrive still made the same noise after I spent $2000. Not recommended.
