  • A Great Place to Wait for the Canal Current…

    The channel on the way in looks tight, but it’s pretty easy to navigate and we carried 6.5ft draft in at mid-tide easily. Never saw less than 10ft, often more.

    People are great, easy fuel dock and the restaurant, The Chart Room, has decent food and nice atmosphere.

  • Thank You for Your Attitude that the Customer Comes First…

    Over the past few weeks, I have been working with Chris Gagne on a maintenance question. The manufacturer’s recommendations were not clear, and Chris needed to do some work to find the right answer. He consulted with your recently hired Yamaha expert, and together both of them told me that it would not be necessary to perform the maintenance at this time. I very much appreciated the straight answer.

    I realize the difficult position that a service manager can be in, torn between producing revenue for the employer and their obligation to the customer. Clearly, Chris made the right call in this situation. It is a tribute to Chris, and to you, for fostering the attitude that the customer comes first.
