I think it would be great for the jetboat community to have Tommy start providing full service, Tom is a fair guy that knows his stuff! I wouldn't hesitate to use him

Same here. I think it would be good for Tommy to open his shop. It would be nice to have a local guy that you can trust to do a good job. I've seen a few boats that he has completed and they looked pretty nice.

I currently use Haney Marine, super nice guy's but just the thought of trying to get my big truck and trailer to his shop makes me cringe. I have also had some suspect work done there, maybe it's ok but when I changed my plugs, there were three different kinds in it :Drop:

Does Tommy know his way around a Sportjet?

What aspects of boat service you planning to provide Tom? Engine/mechanical/electrical/fabrication?

Would be nice to have other options or possibly a quicker availability? I went to someone else thats pretty close to Maple Ridge, spent a whack of money and pretty much got nothing out of it. Kinda put me off mechanics and thats why im doing my own stuff that i can. Also dont have much $$ left to give to a mechanic now haha

You did some good work on Scotts AT pump, and ive met you a couple times, and I would take mine to you if I had any money lol

Are you rebuilding impellers too, or would those be shipped off? and if so, where to?

One thing I forgot, once you finish banging up your tub on the Pitt or Stave, you can easily just drop it off and he'll get her fixed up! Then you can do it all over again! Lol
The location is convenient, Tom you should post your contact info

You need to be a sponsor to promote your business I'm just asking questions at this point. Thanks for all the input. .

If you can run a reputable business and do quality work, there is definitely room in the market for you if you catch my drift.

Tom is the real deal.
Give him a try!
I use him and am 100% happy.
He's actually working on my sportjet as I type...right Tom? Lol
He's gonna do well.

One thing is for sure there is a shortage of quality shops to get work done. I discovered a shop in Mission...great rates great service. Another quality shop that knows their engines would be good.

It would be nice if we had someone local that could supply / install Scott or Ex weldings parts. I like to see things right in front of me before buying if possible.

Ditto on the positive Tommy feedback..did a great rebuild on my at309. Everything was on time when he said it would be done. Very resonable price. Would refer 100%

Forgive the ignorance but Tommy, do you currently do stainless impeller repair? I'm looking for someone local to touch up a couple I have before spring.
