“Do I need to perform boat maintenance?” Absolutely. Some simple things done now and throughout the boating season can save you money on repair bills and dreaded down time down the road. Review your owner’s manual for your motor to see what needs to be done.
“Where do I start?”
You have two choices when getting your boat out for this first time this boating season.
1) If you are a do-it-yourselfer and you like to get your hands dirty you may enjoy the challenge of handling boat maintenance on your own.
For the do-it-yourselfer, we stock boat parts, oil, filters, lube – everything you need to get your boat in tip top shape. We provide only Mercury, Evinrude or Volvo brand name oils that are recommended by your manufacturer. Don’t be fooled by the cheaper auto oils and lubes. Over time, you motor’s performance will suffer.
Should you need to order boat parts for your outboard or sterndrive, our on-line engine selector shows engine diagrams/microfische with the corresponding part names. You can even add parts you need to a shopping cart if you desire. If you are not certain of what you need, call or email parts department for friendly help with your purchase.

We will look over your boat motor and make sure your precious time out on the water is maximized with fun. Plan on enjoying hours of worry free time on the lake by allowing the experts do the work.
