Apps for BoatingAt Anchor Marine Repair, we love seeing and building relationships with our customers. Our main goal as a boat repair shop in Minnesota is that if your boat ever needs to be repaired or stored, we are the first place you call! It’s not just about boat repairs, however. We as a staff love seeing our customers out on the Minnesota waters and hearing about their big catch! We are always on the hunt looking for innovative ways to enjoy your boating experience, whether it has to do with your boat specifically, or by utilizing external tools to enhance your time on the water. Recently, our team ran into a boating blog from Discover Boating, where they have highlighted boating apps to download for on the water.
