We have been calling on our friends at The Boathouse in Lakeshore. They help us with our boats, motors, and electronics.
Lee’s Trolling Motor Service, also in Lakeshore, has had plenty of our trolling motors and Power Poles repaired recently. We are very tough on our equipment, and these folks keep us on the water.
Sport Trail Trailers in Waveland has a fantastic parts room. All of the components you’ll ever need for a trailer – hubs, springs, bolts, tires, etc. – it's all there.
Atlantic Marine on Highway 90 is a great place for parts and service. You can also buy boats and motors there.
Just down the road is Bay Marina on Washington Street. They have a great repair shop, too.
Glass Masters fiberglass shop in the old Twin Pines skating rink has been getting rave reviews on their repair work.
Across the bridge, you got Pass Christian Yacht Works. A lot of Pass Christian guides use them and are very pleased with them.
Nobody hates bad weather more than I do, but it does give you a good excuse to get your equipment ready for the good weather. Remember, it’s South Mississippi, and the weather is likely to be beautiful in a day or so. These “less than perfect” bad weather days are the perfect time to get all kinks ironed out.
As always, have fun and be safe.
