Complaint Review: My Marine Mechanic
My Marine MechanicMy Marine mechanic 1716 N Dixie Hwy Hollywood, Florida United States of America
My Marine Mechanic This Boat mechanic Charged me $238.00 for electrical and when i went to pick up my boat nothing was done! Hollywood, Florida
a few days later i return to pick up my boat and not only is my boat not wired like i payed for ,the fuel injection on it was even more unhooked than it was when i brought it in and nothing else wired or even re capped for any kind of connection. when i asked the owner/mechanic if it was wired up to start he tells me " Nomatter what i do , the boat motor will never turn over or run again" and tries to sell me that i can buy a motor from him for 3000 if i like and toss it right in no problem but insists that my motor is locked up and will never turn and it will need a sledge hammer to get the pistons out of it etc etc...
so i shell out the money very upset but quiet about the crap service because i wanted to punch the guy in the face honestly. So upset, i went home , and spent my last 50 dollars toward this supposed locked up boat motor and poured some oil in all cylinders waited an hour and with a 18 inch crow bar between the crank bolts the motor turned over just fine. basically i just got charged 238.00 for the mechanic to look at my project boat, stare at the electrical nightmare,talk a bunch of crap, try to sell me some stuff i didnt need and then charge me for his magical invisible electrical services that are still not done to this day and i have to try to find another marine mechanic that isnt trying to rip me off.
