I bought a jon boat from them like 10 years ago.

They do have a good selection.

One good thing is; if they carry several brands of the type of boat you are shopping for then they can indeed suggest the one that is the best.

Many other dealers have only one manufacturer or type of boat to offer. So duh, what will they push? (The only one they have...)

The after-the-sale experience was er, bearable. Nothing to write Mom about, nothing to flame about.

I think that is as good as it gets here in Richmond.

Selection and low price he can't be beat on. However do not get any service or warranty work there. Basically he is a one and done dealer. Get your money, give you a boat and on to the next one in line.

Hey guys,
EXCELLENT selection, none better in the area, good prices, after sale was I guess average. Like DaveB said nothing to get too excited over but nothing to spaz about. Good luck

ShoreBird,

Heard same as what newpl said, when I bought my 14'Jon boat w/9.9 4-stroke from them in 1997. Great low price, but did not plan to take it to them for service from the get go.

Headed for the boat show this weekend with visions of a Carolina Skiff and the beer cart girl dancing in my head :D

Help the economy buy something as life is short and hey whats another payment book ;)

ShoreBird, i talked to my friend and he said he it's been several years since he bought his boat, but he said he didn't have any problems and he is planning to buy one from them again next spring. so apparently he is satisfied with them hope this is some help to you.

Actually, a 17' CC Carolina Skiff for $10,999 is a good price. Carolina Skiff make some really good boats and they have plenty of fishing space. They ride excellent, and a Yamaha can get the job done for that boat. Im surprised its a 70HP and not maybe a 95. Its a good buy no matter what.

Make sure that you call the boat company, give them the boat motor combo that you are going to get and ask them for the proper prop size. I neighbor got one that was way over proped. You want to turn the proper number of RPMS, each motor has it's own range, or you can kill your motor quick.

Forget after sales service. Make sure that you have a local guy that will service the brand motor that you get.

Guys,

The Local (to me) Carolina Skiff dealer
closed. A comparable boat in this area would
go vor $13,000 +.
Because the price is so good I plan to upgrade to a larger 4 Stroke. I believe 90
hp is the max for the Sea Chaser.

If they have what you want you WILL NOT beat the price. As for the service,not good. I've purchased three boats from Terry and will buy another from him if he has what I'm in the market for.


DEAN #3 who says get a good rainsuit with that Carolina Skiff cause it will WET YOUR A$$.
