With limited shops in the area, it was a relief to find All Aboard. Don has serviced my boat several times now and is honest. He called to tell me the boat did not need some of the service I thought it did. As a 1st time boat owner, I really appreciate the guidance & honesty. Highly recommend this shop!!

Don is the best boat mechanic I know, and I know quite a few of them. He is always my first pick for the work I can't figure out myself.

I took my boat to "All Aboard" for an oil leak which I couldn't find. I had never been there before but they have great reviews so I figured I would give them a try. Don said I have a good idea where the leak was at, it's common on this boat. He gave me a price and repaired it. Don said the gimble bearing was going bad, which I figured because I noticed a lot of play on the outdrive, and the boat is 27 years old. I gave him the Ok to repair it. He asked about the last time the impeller was replaced, I changed it myself a long time ago, and Don said the water circulation pump was leaking. I told Don I could change the pump and the impeller myself and asked if he would order the parts, he did and gave me a great price on everything. When I picked up the boat after he repaired what I wanted, Don said he gave me the wrong price for the circulation pump and the impeller, it was $50.00 less than what he quoted me. Don is an honest man, his mechanics do great work at a great price. I can't say enough good things about the business, they are great and I would recommend them to anyone. Thank again Don and Travis.

Don at All Aboard Boat Repairs is the best of the best when it comes to boat mechanics. He knows exactly what he's doing and works tirelessly to figure out any issues that are happening with your boat. I live 30 miles away and it's worth the drive. He and his team are also great at regular maintenance and winterization. I cannot say enough nice things. I brought my boat to All Aboard after the winter storage facility completely trashed my engine. Don was able to fix it - he's responsive, caring, and does whatever he can to get your boat back in the water the right way. THANK YOU!
