Boat Repair & Restoration MN

Minnesota Boat and Trailer Repair Minnesota is made for boating! Fishing boats, sail boats, pontoon boats, kayaks, canoes, personal watercraft, and yachts… there’s a boat for everyone and every purpose, and nowhere in the United States will you find more boats per capita than in Minnesota. Did you know the land of 10,000 lakes has more miles of coastline than California, Hawaii and Florida combined?  That is why thousands of boaters take advantage of our state’s most famous feature… its lakes!  That including rivers and streams (we’ve got nearly 70,000 miles of them) that are all just waiting to be enjoyed! When summer comes, there’s no time to waste. Think about it: Every state has its “thing.” Georgia has its three p’s—peaches, peanuts, and pecans. Wisconsin has its cows, and ergo its cheese. Washington has its apples, and Florida has its sunshine. And Minnesota? Well, we’ve got our lakes. All 10,000 of them! You can’t ask for a better state if you love boating!  And you can’t ask for a better state if you love to fish! (you can’t ask for a worse state if you are the fish!) We may get a good deal of press for our sub-zero temperatures and our 10-month winters, but we’re best known for our lakes—ahhhhhh, what a great thing to be known for! Remember To Inspect Your Boat Trailer When the weather starts warming up and lakes are thawing, you may want to get your boat and trailer seaworthy before your first trip. So here are some times you might want to consider before you head out to a lake or river...

Boat Collision Damage Repair Minnetonka MN

Summer is just around the corner and with the frigid cold temperatures we’ve had in Minnesota this winter, many boat owners will be itching to get their boats out as soon as possible. Because boating is one of the most preferred recreational sports here in Minnesota and in Wisconsin during the summer, boat collisions both on and off the water are quite common. But before you rush out to the closest lake or river when summer hits, remember how important boat repair is. If your boat has been damaged or previously damaged from collision, proper maintenance and boat repair is necessary to extend the life of your beloved craft. New improvements paired with modern technology including safer passenger cabins, sturdier boats seats, enhanced engines and better hull designs, have allowed water travel to be safer, cheaper and more comfortable. Although newer and sturdier products and materials have been added to boats to make them last, proper repair and maintenance is still important to increase its longevity. But just like your car, your boat needs annual maintenance, and it is imperative to repair any damages that occur to keep your boat in full function. Failing to repair any damage done to your boat could lead to thousands of dollars in repair in the future–or even put you in the market for a new boat. If damage has occurred to your boat, it is important to quickly get the damage repaired in order to keep moisture out and shield your boat from additional damage. For example, damage to the hull of the boat can cause significant flood damage or create stress...
