    Mike, I don't know anything about them, buy why not contract with a local dealer for that brand of engine?

    Oh they might be able to get to it in three weeks or four weeks. The dictator of Michigan has screwed up everything.

    Skipper Buds @ North Point is good. I also had a good experience when I purchased Inconceivable from Skipper Buds up in Sturgeon Bay.

    I have had nothing but bad experience with Skipper Buds..It was just one boat purchase at the Grand Haven location..... Never again at any location

    I have always had the best luck being there for the engine survey.... at least you can see what they are doing

    I have had a good experience with them at North Point. The redid a transmission for me. And fixed a cracked head. Their guys seem to know what they are doing.

    The service department in Volo has been good to work with. They really stand behind their work. I have never bought a boat from them. I tried but it never worked out for various reasons. Weird stuff like not having a clear title on a brokerage boat among others.

    I have had two boats like that from them. Seems that the titles are not cleared when the loan is paid, and then the bank is sold. Trying to track someone down at the new bank to clear the title becomes a problem.
