Having a boat is supposed to be fun. Yet the word “boat” has turned into a four-letter word for many of us. Something’s always breaking, and we find ourselves “Breaking Out Another Thou” time and time again. It’s always the same story. You’re coasting along Biscayne Bay. The Florida sun is shining. The water is crystal clear. The fish are biting. Life is good. *POW* your engine sputters and goes out. The sunshine is quickly clouded by the black smoke coming from your outboard. Who do you call? Was that mechanic’s name Larry or Jerry? Didn’t you hear your neighbor tell you he stole parts from his cruiser? If you only had the number of that other guy…you know, the guy you met while at the bar. He seemed like he knew his stuff, right? Finding a great boat expert is hard. Finding someone who shows up with 20 five-star reviews from previous customers, and gives you a clear expectation of costs seems like a pipe dream. But it doesn’t have to be anymore! We’ve been burning the midnight oil, searching high and low to find the best boating experts in South Florida. Each company is vetted and grilled on their performance. We then bring the top of the line experts to our easy-to-use website where you can request their services at your convenience.
