The importance of choosing a qualified outboard engine repair facility

Clay Holcomb, with the Chesapeake Boat Basin in Kilmarnock, Va., is a dealer for Boston Whaler boats and Mercury and Suzuki outboard motors. “Everything in the boat business—from the engines, the boat itself, and electronics integration—has become so technologically advanced it is necessary to not only be properly trained by the manufacturer, it is equally important to have the correct diagnostic equipment to perform the proper services to the products,” he says.

It’s every boat owner’s worst nightmare. They bring their outboard engine to a repair shop to be worked on only to have it returned with damage. Unfortunately, there are some businesses that will start a repair job even without the proper qualifications. This is why it’s always important to check the reputation of such businesses before leaving your engine for repair.
