I have never camped the Delta Marina, however I have had my boat worked on the their shop, have probably spent close to $10,000. in boat repairs in the last 10 years using there shop and mechanic. I have always been very satisfied with their mechanic work, (Mike), in the years past that he has done worke on my boat. However, my last experience with the shop and Mike will be the last. I spent over $2,200. to have the final touches put on the boat after I installed a rebuilt engine in boat. Mike had noticed that the gimbal bearing needed to be replaced, with doing he had to pull the out drive, this was fine, after picking my boat up a launching it I took it out for a test, it was very pleased, the boat ran great. I returned to our dock tied it up for the night, to my surprise and shock the boat my boat had taken on water during the night and sunk. After pumping the water from the boat and removing it, I notice water was pouring from the billows where the shift cable that comes out from the out drive. When I inspected the boot I notice the bellows had a tear in it. I called Mike and told him about this, at which time Mike told me well the bellows probably already was ripped. So Mike would not take any responsibility for the torn bellows. This surprise me, as Mike is a professional and should have inspected the bellows as he obviously had the bellows in his hand once or twice during the repairs he performed on the boat. So as it turned out, I paid $2,200. plus to have my boat sink. I do not believe this is fair, as not only did my boat sink of course my rebuilt engine had water in it, plus a ruined starter, probably a ruined gimbal bearing. I have not got my boat repaired yet, due to the money I spent with Mikes work, having a hard time wanting to pay again, as with all the repairs needed the out drive has to be removed once again in order to replace the bellows. I did not take legal action, as I liked mike, however know that it is to late to take legal action, I have to say Mike did not think to much of me as a customer, well live and learn. So please beware when having your boat repaired at Delta Marina.
