Sample Reviews


Scrubbed, power-washed, polished our boat... inside, outside and the cushions. Even peeled off the old inspection sticker and put on the new one. It's awkward to reach but he did it with a smile. Nice, polite, efficient crew.

***Buyer Beware*** Called
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
to fix a battery issue with my boat. Boat was not starting. The boat is a year old with less than 30 hours on the engine. I spoke with
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
at Action Boats multiple times, but he did not come out to give me a written estimate on the repair. Finally, three weeks after contacting
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
, I received a call that he had come to my house when I was not home and inspected the boat. I was told that he needed to replace the battery switch OEM, battery cables, and fuse box.
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
could not provide me with an estimate on the repair because he said that he had to check on part prices. I did not hear from
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
for another couple weeks. After leaving multiple messages, I received a call from
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
that the boat was repaired. I attempted to give
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
my credit card number, but
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
told me the price was 684.00 if I choose to pay with check instead of credit card to avoid credit card fees.
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
said he was going to give me a "discount" so that he didn't have to pay the transaction fee of the credit card company.
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
said he needed to pick up the check immediately and wanted me to make the check out to him personally. I requested an invoice which he said he would email to me at a later time. After paying
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
via check, and upon inspection of the boat, I realized that all my electronics( depth finder, GPS, and radio) did not work. It appeared that none of the electronics were receiving power. In addition, my motor loses power randomly now and leaves me stranded. None of these problems were present prior to
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
working on my boat. Over a 3 week period, I called
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
16 times and left multiple messages without receiving any return calls. After receiving no call back, I finally went to
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
's location and spoke with
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
apologized and said he had been out of town and would be out to my house to fix the electronics and look at my motor the next morning.
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
has never called or stopped by my house. I have called multiple times and never received a call back. After reviewing the invoice that
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
forwarded to me after I paid him, I realized that the "discount" that he provided me for not using my credit card was actually the 7% sales tax that he put in the invoice. I have forward the invoice, a copy of check addressed to him, and complaint to Florida Department of Revenue tax fraud tip line. I DO NOT RECOMMEND
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
, but if you choose to use
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
request a written estimate and do not pay invoice until you have thoroughly checked work. I wish I would have read the prior reviews on Angie's list before using
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
! It seems this is not the first time
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
has had these issues with customers. BUYER BEWARE.......
- Gordon O.

Used him for about a year started out okay although was a little expensive. Then this spring when removing shrink wrap from our new boat. his crew slashed one of our seats with a box cutter. It took a month for him to call me back. He agreed that it was his employees who must have done it. He also stated he would arrange for it to be repaired or replaced like new. However, that is the last I have heard from him despite leaving multiple messages. As of 8/30/14, I still have no response, so I must assume he is not interested in correcting his damage to my boat. I would not recommend this company based on there awful customer service

I hired this company to do some work on my boat in the
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
Harbor boatyard. I had them drill and tap some holes into the
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
and install some new
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
bolts. They also agreed to install a new packing gland on the engine prop shaft at my request and do some minor fiberglass repair. I was assured that they had the necessary equipment to make short order of the drilling and tapping operation. After spending an hour on the engine, it was clear that the mechanical work was too much for this young crew. The owner conceded to being in over his head and brought in another company to finish the engine work. To drill the
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
bolt holes, the crew used nothing more than a department store battery operated drill. This took many many hours to complete, all of which should have taken just a few hours to complete with more appropriate industrial equipment. In short, I was charged an enormous amount of money to complete this project which should have cost half of what I was charged. I payed this young crew for their on-the-job training! They are overconfident in their capabilities and do not have the necessary equipment to do what they say they can do. There are some very capable and talented boat mechanics in the
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
area. This company is not one of them.
- Dan Z.

He started working on the boat nearly 1 year ago. Since that time, he has failed to repair the problem. He has overcharged for services and parts. Failed to show up when he said he would. It appeared that every time he was able to get a larger, more expensive, customer he would simply not show up and then later gave every excuse in the book. Since it was not season, we were very patient until the last time that he actually did show up. He gave us a large bill and did not complete the work. We finally fired him. Unfortunately, there appears to be no remedy for bad and incompetent service from so called marine mechanics. We learned the hard way. We lost a year and a lot of wasted money. I would not trust this guy with a row boat.
- Robert T.

Fast and Excellent Quality of Workmanship. I brought in a prop for repair and was returned in a quick amount of new condition! Excellent customer service!
- Bill B.

I received A1 as a recommendation from 3 different businesses around Lake
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
has looked at 2 boats for me before I made each purchase. Both times he has been very thorough in the inspection in making me aware of any engine issues, as well as potential future engine repair needs, before making the purchase. In addition to providing boat inspections for me, he also performs all of the service on my boat.
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
being mobile (and me not having a trailer), makes it convenient to also have him perform all of my service on my boat. I have been very pleased with the service that
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
and his side kick
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
provides, and would highly recommend

Capt. Rod's installation crew cut away sections of the supporting framework in order to fit the sections into the metal frame of the pier. According to the manufacturer, it was only necessary to trim away 1/8" of the pier top with a plane or saw to make it fit in the frame.
Now, because there is no supporting under-structure, people are stepping on the edges of the pier, cracking the frame, and breaking through the pier.
Capt. Rod refuses any more responsibility for the issue, saying it is the manufacturer's fault for selling him a defective product. If he knew it was a defective product, why did he continue to sell it to the public? There is a lot of "finger pointing" going on between Capt. Rod, the seller of the top of the pier, and the manufacturer of the frame. But in my opinion, Capt. Rod has ultimate responsibility since he sold the product.
At this point, I may be required to either once again pay for AND replace the top, and also pay for the pier to be cut apart and re-welded OR buy a new pier. Either way, I will NOT be dealing with Capt. Rod.
PS - I DO love the thru-flow pier

Living in P**** Gorda for 12 years I have struggled to fnd a reliable, trustworthy, reasonably priced marine mechanic to look after my Volvo
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
gas engines.
Spotting good reviews on Angies list i got him down to do a detail to my boat on the lift, and see if I felt i could trust him to do mechanical work on my boat.
Most detailers cannot do a good job on a lift. no problem here- he has a big float and after 5 hours my 5 year old boat looked like it was just out of the showroom. Not cheap but a great job.
On this basis i decided to trust him to do relatively major work of new risers, manifolds, + 100 hr service and outdrive removal on my Volvo 5.7GXI.
Again, most marine mechanics will not remove an outdrive on the lift.
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
can do EVERYTHING on the lift. Detail, service, outdrive removal. No one else can. Saves removing boat from water, trailering etc.
Great job, evrerything done i asked for. Competant. A couple of hiccups were overcome quickly.It all would have been done in one day but for a problem caused by the last mechanic who workred on the boat.
All in all very happy.Will use him again next year!
After 12 years I have finally found a decent boat mechanic.!
- peter C.

They have always been great.
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
always either answers my calls or returns them. Show up on time, have good prices and do great work. Best of all they provide a lot of information and know how on how to operate and maintain a lift. They have talked me through operation issues on the phone and even stopped by just to see how things were going (as this was my first lift). Most recently the remote stopped working.
Bridgeport Boat Dealer Provider Name Locked
stopped by and tuned the transmitter (while showing me how to do it myself) at no charge even though it was not something he had originally installed. I recommend them to everyone and will use them again if I ever need anything done on my dock or lift.
