In the spring of 2015. I hired Lentze Marina to replace the exhaust risers and manifolds on my boat. Twin Chrylser 318 motors. The gaskets were installed upside down on both motors, one old gasket was not removed prior to installing the new gasket, one bolt was stripped and a spark plug was cracked. The spark plug that was cracked was right next to one of the leaks. This could have caused a fire or an explosion. For several months, I've been asking the marina to reimburse me for the cost of the work. I told them I would go to the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and review them online if they didn't back up their work. Their attorney is now threatening to sue me if I do go the BBB or review them online. I have photos and copies of e-mails to show and prove everything. It is my opinion that I would never let Lentze Marina work on my boat ever again. Plus, they won't reimburse a good customer (I was at their marina for 2 years. I paid cash on time for all my bills) for such an obvious, major mistake and they have threatened to sue me if I tell other people the truth. I'm writing this review so other people are cautious about how important work like this. The cracked spark plug and leaks could have caused a fire or explosion. The fumes leaking from the hatch and into the cabin could have made us sick or have even killed us.
