What Some Of Our Customers Say:

I cannot begin to describe how satisfied I am with your company…I did the repair in the water at low tide, time elapsed: 1.5 hrs. Quick, efficient, well made. I am out of superlatives. 


Matt R., Bayside, NY

This is an OUTSTANDING PRODUCT and it really does work just as described. I installed it in less than two hours … and thanks to you, your really quick delivery, and perfect product, I was able to enjoy one of the best vacations ever while lobstering in the Florida Keys. You saved my 25 year old motor and gave me even more years of dependable service.

Thank you again for your awesome product and outstanding customer service!
