Description of service

Every spring, before I drop it in the water, I take my boat in to be maintenanced. The boat mechanic will change the oil in the motor, and inspect it to make sure it will be running well. They also check the boat for holes, cracks, corrosion and other defects. They make sure my boat remains safe, and that it will be running well for the summer. The company I use has an advertisment for $69.95 to have your boat serviced, and this is what I went with this summer.

Review of Service

The service is great, I use it every year. I feel like it's a good deal because there is nothing on a boat you can have fixed for $69.95, so to pay that and prevent problems from happening really save me money in the long run. The whole process takes all day, I drop the boat off in the morning and pick it up in the afternoon. Overall, I would recommend this service providor to everyone - they are that good.


If you can afford to have your boat checked out, look online for boat care instructions and do everything yourself. That will save you a bunch of money. If you can afford it, call around to different boat mechanics and see what kind of maintenance packages they have and see who has the best deal.
