Winter this year just won't go away, every three or four days it gets cold and frozen precipitation falls. If you are one of those guys putting off getting your boat serviced, you are going to have a problem.
Every year when the weather finally breaks, customers bring in their boats to their mechanic to get them ready for the upcoming season. This generally happens over a month or so, many repair shops can handle the load. This year is different, when the weather finally does break, there will have a bunch of anglers wanting to go fishing. The problem is that the mechanics can only get so much done in a week. Everyone is going to bring their boats in at the same time and it will take some time to get all those boats repaired. The only fair way a dealerships can handle this is to take customers first - come first serve. A lot of customers will be unhappy with their mechanics. It's not the mechanics fault, they came to work every day and were there to serve you, you couldn't get your boat out or just put off taking the boat for repairs. Calm down, we will get through this, we always do. It will just take a little hard work and a little patience.
No one expected a winter like the one we are having this year. Things come up, we understand. But if you want to be one of the first to go fishing this spring and your boat needs some repairs, I would suggest getting your boat to the repair shop today. It hasn't snowed in a couple of days and that means it could snow at any minute.
