This past weekend was the annual WaterFire event on the Plaza in Kansas City. WaterFire is a unique experience of sparkling bonfires on the water, live music from boats along Brush Creek, and performances from the shore & the boats. The event employs three boats with 25 hp Mercury outboards to move performers up and down the creek.
The week of the show, organizers came to US Boatworks with two non-working Mercury outboards. They arrived on Wednesday & our team immediately took to action to get the motors in working order. On Thursday the first outboard was repaired and was quickly back on the water to practice for the upcoming show. Then on Friday, the day before the show, we finished up the second repair. Within just a couple of days, we had both boats back on the creek, the performances would go on!
I was lucky to be able to attend the 2017 WaterFire event on Saturday. It was a wonderful show with something for everyone. If you have a chance, be sure to check out. More exciting events are planned for next year. We can also help you with outboard boat motor repairs in Kansas City!
