    As the title suggests, has anyone visited Lanier Marine Liquidators in Dawsonville, GA? I see some items in a parts boat I am interested in and am curious if anyone has purchased anything from them. Thank you in advance for your responses.

    i am also curious about this operation....I have come across their web site several times while looking at boats and parts in the past....looks like they have a very broad selection of makes and models boats that are being parted out....

    good luck....

    I sold a Boston Whaler a few years ago and was looking for a project boat. Dawsonville is about 4 hours from my home in Tennessee so I drove down one winter day to see if anything they had would scratch the itch. I spent about 3 hours walking around looking at boats and I couldn't find anything that didn't need everything, if you know what I mean. The problem wan't the work involved, but rather the fact that you'd have too much $$ invested in anything I saw to ever break even.

    The one possible exception may be one of the Sport-Jet Sea Rayders......they had several 14's and a couple of 16's....... There isn't a lot to replace on one of them and I have visions of a Honda Accord 6 cyl with a dry summp, marinized and mounted vertically on the Jet pump or maybe adding a bracket and turning one into an outboard. Maybe next winter...........

    Been a few time, like Frank said lots of project boats and parts :)
    Have not been a few years, but I thought I heard something about them going out of business or moving?

    BE VERY VERY VERY CAREFUL with them. Their reputation is horrendous. Google them and you will read stories that will scare you for sure. Everybody around here (Lake Lanier,Ga) knows them. If you are local and want to go and pick a part its fine but if not local, shop elsewhere.

    if you own anything bigger than a 30' they don't have parts for the big ones. I'm headed down to Atlanta next weekend and was going to stop there but nothing for my size raft.

    Ive contacted them about some parts I needed. They told me they had them and would send pictures. Never heard a thing back from them nor will they return my calls.
