Default Boat services

Hello to my fellow fishcoholics and boat owners.
This is not a report, but a request to you knowledged boatsmen about where to get the best boat service in town. I have had poor expericences with a couple of dealers in town and are trusting the members of this great forum to help me out. Travel is not a concern, but service is. I also want timely service. One of the dealers in town had my boat for a month, just for a 90 hour service job. The other told me they had fixed my boat engine (it takes 10 plus turns of the key to turn it over), and upon leaving their service department and getting to the lake in the same day, I had the same problem.
So I leave it to my fellow members to direct me to the "Best service dealer in town" to take care of my Fisher Hawk 170 with a Mercury 115 4-stroke.
Thank you for all your info, both about dealers and fishing.

I second the recommendation about Aurora Marine. In fact, I made another post about them a while back:

https://www.coloradofisherman.com/for...p?topic=5234.0

As I mentioned, I'm sure there are other great dealers around and so I just wanted to tell about my personal experiences with Aurora Marine and do not want to take anything away from other good boat dealers...

I know exactly what you need to do:

1. Launch your boat.
2. Look for the 4 bolts on the transom by the motor.
3. Completely loosen the nuts.
4. Let that Merc drop right into the lake.
5. Go buy a Yamaha.

Problem solved.

I got great service from Best Marine Service. They are in Wheatridge off of Ward. They specialize in Mercury. They do get busy early so if you need work better call soon.

!!!!!!!!!!!BEST MARINE SERVICE!!!!!!!!!!!
Pat and his guys are the best in town. For advice or service he has always done me great. I can't say enough good about him and his wife who run the place.

I've never dealt with Aurora except for parts and such, but I've always heard good things. Mercs and More, I haven't had good luck with and Castlerock Marine, well lets just say don't ever give them a penny. At Castlerock Marine your only as important as the size of your job and wallet. If you have a $100,000 boat in need of 10 grand in repair, your tops. If you have a couple hundred dollar repair, well make other plans for your fishing season. If fact you'll be lucky if you ever get your boat back from them. Just my experience!

Or buy an E-tec and forget about repairs.
