I was motoring up to Clearwater Pass last weekend when I suddenly lost power, not RPM's, and knew I was in trouble. We had a look the following day and sure enough the lower unit was toast... where can I get repairs done, inexpensively and have it by next weekend? Nick suggested Suncoast Marine and I'm glad I called!

I talked to Bob who said I could be back in the water on Friday for under $1500 if I got him the boat Monday. Having called around for OEM lower units, finding the parts alone at over 2K it was an easy decision on my end. Knowing that they would have it done by Friday, with a 3 year parts warranty was icing on the cake.

I learned quickly one of the reasons that Suncoast Marine is relied upon by so many for outboards, parts, and repairs. Waiting, I listened to Sarah give a detailed description of parts that may be causing an issue (dying out at higher RPM's) for an owner of an older outboard.... "have you checked the fuel filter, have you tried pumping the bulb when the issue occurs, have you checked the fuel lines/bulb, how about the fuel pump, etc." She ran through a litany of items that may be cuasing the issue starting from the least expensive/labor intensive for the do it yourselfer.

When my number was up she generated the ticket and I got to speak directly to the mechanic whould be addressing my issue. He was sure to ask if I was having any other issues, were there other systems that I wanted checked out or did I have any concerns about the scheduled work?

Having no boat, and a vacation, I decided to head out of town for a couple of days. I really wanted to get away so left my cell phone and laptop at the house and headed out. Bob called on Friday explaining that he was unable to get in touch, the lower unit came unpainted and an additional hour of labor was required to free up the shifter (it had been tight for a long time). The really cool thing was that he didn't hold up work waiting on my reply as he knew how important the time frame was and the expense was minimal.

Got my new old ride back in better shape than before the issue, words of wisdom on breaking in the new lower unit, maintenance, etc. and a great contact for future parts/repairs!

I whole heartedly recommened Suncoast Marine for your parts and repair needs!. They been in business for 45 years, are family owned/operated and specialize in Evinrude, Johnson, Yamaha repairs. If you need parts give Sarah a call and Bob's team will take care of any repairs reasonably/professionally and will be happy to install your competitively priced new outboard from their full line of new Yamaha's and Evinrudes.
