WHAT’S NEW

April 11, 2022

 

BOOKINGS / GENERAL INFO

  • Currently, we are taking bookings for the end of May 2022. (Generally speaking, we are fully booked ahead by six weeks at this point and recommend you book well ahead for your Spring tune-up & any service work you need).

SUPPLY IMPACT ****

  • Supply Chain challenges coupled with geopolitical conflict is having an unprecendented & unpredictable impact on everything from raw materials & production to transportation of goods. Coupled with inflationary pressures, we all face the unknown and can only navigate as we go with no charts to guide us. So of course, we do not know what lies ahead as manufacturers struggle with production capacity, demand and delivery issues. We have a very small booking of engines for 2022 and do not expect any more until 2023/2024. We have managed to remain relatively well stocked with essentials, such as oil, filters, anodes, etc., and have been able to accommodate all repairs but with increasing time delays.  We are trying our best in these circumstances & thank you for your ongoing patience. In the meantime, we strongly recommed you keep your vessels in good working order.
