Shout outs to Wetsounds, Perfect pass and others
So lately I have been a bit jaded and negative due to a very taxing boat purchase I recently made, as this works itself towards resolution I am reminded of all the great experiences I have had with dealers and accessory providers and I we all are fast to share our negative experiences and its time to talk about the great ones… feel free to add to the list:
Wetsounds – Tim White is the president and has a business to run, yet he always has time to deal with a customer and help them out. Thanks for your advise today Tim.
Perfect Pass – A few summers ago my servo went while we were on holidays. PP diagnosed the problem for me over the phone while I was on the water. They then overnighted a new servo to me and even though I was off the beaten path I was up and running the next day. I lost maybe 6 hours of boating over this.
Atlantis Marine – I had my electrical system quit on my boat, now power to any accessories (and ballast system) I called them from the water, 15 minutes before closing on the Friday of a long weekend and they had the mechanic wait for me and fixed the problem so my long weekend would not be impacted. He was there until 8:00pm… I bought him beer
Inland Surfer – Jeff Page et. Al. always seem to have time to answer questions and give advise, even though they know I am a long way from them and odds are I will never buy a boat from them.
I am sure everyone has great stories… share them and spread good Karma
I have been very lucky, very few if any bad experiences. Texas Ski Ranch has gone above and beyond many times. A few I can remember would be throwing a bearing at a boat ramp on my trailer, they came out and had it fixed before I was done wakeboarding. another time I hit a submerged log, destroyed drive shaft, rudder and prop. this happened Saturday at 10 am and I was back on the water at 3:30 that day.
Wetsounds has always been great, Zero off was awesome. the list goes on.
Bought my first DD in May this year after looking at junk for 6mons. People wanted 5K for rotten supra's with not interior. 7hrs from me, a guy with a late 80's supreme made the deal incredibly easy. When I showed up after a week of phone calls and texts, the boat was better than described, ready to go with a full tank of premium. Despite some 40mph+ wind, the PO insisted I take the test drive and proved what the boat was capable of. Couldn't have asked for a better transaction. Who gives you 40gal of premium for free??? Thanks Harold!
