Fishwrecked.com welcomes - Men on Boats - New site sponsor

Hi Guys,

Please welcome our new site sponsors Men On Boats.

Cheers,

Adam

 

Men on Boats is the new way for Trailer Boat Fisherman to stay on the water longer. It’s time for a change in what boat yards offer so were starting the change.

 

Based on the experience of a Boat Builder, parts, chandlery and service suppliers, Men on Boats can service your Boat, Motor and Trailer, assist in refurbishment and refitting of your existing boat and supplies parts at trade prices.

 

We’ve already refurbished several boats, supplied consoles for center console conversions and updates and assisted in many repowering and construction ideas for clients.

 

We can also pick up and deliver your boat for servicing in the Perth Metro area to ensure that you can get it serviced and all services done before 30 April 2009 will go into the draw for a 3.75 Aluminium Dinghy Trailer plus a 15HP Honda motor By booking completing your boat service with  Men on Boats. Call for details.

 

Why not use the experience and resources of Men On boats to plan your next fishing trip , grab a coffee in the coffee lounge area and browse the catalogues for you boating requirements (We will have finished the yard fitout very soon). Online services will be available very soon so you can order via the web and then either pick up from us or we can have it shipped directly to you.

 

Men on Boats is the Factory Direct outlet for Commodore Marine fiberglass boats so why not find out why so many trailer boat fishermen are having their boat custom made right here in WA by a boat builder that builds for fishermen, FACTORY DIRECT. Big decks, high freeboard for safety and an outstanding seagoing reputation, has made Commodore Marine the respected mark in the harsh seas off the West Australian Coast. Performance, Quality and Handling are the key ingredients found in every award winning Commodore built, and because we make sure our customers have a full understanding of how our boats are built.

 

A custom built Commodore to your specifications is easy, including whatever brand of outboard you want. 2009 will see Commodore Marine expand their range to 17 models. From the 1700 (17’) Fraser Centre Console or Runabout for under $30,000 drive away to the mighty Abrolhos 8 metre (26’), ensuring there is a model to suit everyone’s budget and needs. However before you look at the price, make sure you check out the standard features, we are sure you will be very surprised.

Boat Service

Wed, 2009-10-28 15:27

Men On Boats: Is your service as bad as Estuary Marine or better if you are better then I will bring my boat to your place next time around.

My experiance with Estuary Marine yesterday was the worst I ever encountered!

Picked up my boat from Estuary Marine yesterday after paying $770 for a 100hr service when I went around the back it had a flat tyre 1 x battery missing one speaker cover broken and when I opened the lid the motor was not even cleaned and the oil filter still loose wont use this yamaha dealer again.

Anti Dealer support!

Well I paid before I saw the boat since they were still buzy finishing off on it when I popped in to see how they are after it's been their the day before.

I only went over it once they pushed it outside. I went back in and asked about it when they said sorry not their problem but they sell batteries for $250 and up if I want one.

The mechanic came out later and told me while he climed off the boat he stepped on the valve of the tyre and broke it thats why it had a flat. I been on and off boats since I was 9yrs old never seen anyone step on the valve when theirs a ladder and step.

So the service has now cost me $769 plus the valve from Tyre joint $15 and now a battery at BCF $200 also

Never will I use them again thats for sure.  Estuary Marine that is.

Interesting read

Wed, 2009-10-28 20:25

I have spoken to more than one other person (not on this site) who have had major issues with Estuary Marine and their service or lack of it as it was put to me, not to mention the attitudes.... Not good.
