oldno7, I've heard good things about Big Water and even thought they are a bit out of town i think it's the right place. Have you had any mechanical work done by them?
Yes, they have done mech. work.
Nothing major(knocks on wood)
Pull and inspect outdrive, impeller,etc.
We notify them when we will be arriving, they put the boat out in the yard and usually fill it with water for us.
We show up, hook up and go.
When we return, we unload in front of the building and they put it back inside.
We measured the difference in fuel consumption towing vs. paying for indoor storage, it takes less than 2 trips a month to pay for itself.
Also--we always fill up in Greenhaven enroute to launch, their prices are usually pretty good.
Was a bummer though--last year they went to e-10, we add treatment every fillup.
