Your Master Mechanic
In 1978, I started working for a family dealership owned by the Yetter family. They dealt primarily with tournament fishermen and high-performance boats. Alongside the Yetter’s I learned specialized methods of rigging and technical skills on outboard repairs and custom painting, recarpeting and everything in between. The most important things that I learned were the value of great customer communication, quality workmanship, and dependability.
After 13 years with the Yetter’s, I decided it was time to branch out with my own family dealership. Focusing on the bass fisherman, we started as dealers for Ranger and Stratos Bass Boats, Mercury, Johnson, Evinrude, Yamaha, Nissan, and Tohatsu Motor Lines. Our family dealership had something different to offer, an in-house machine shop and rebuilding service, as well as “Free Pick-Up and Delivery” services for dealers and independent shop owners.
In 2002, we sold our full dealership but retained the Rebuilding and Machine Shop service. After a much-needed vacation, we introduced Outboard Clinic. Today we work with dealers and independent shops both local and worldwide. With my son by my side, we continue to maintain the lessons that I learned working alongside the Yetter family 38 years ago The value of great customer communication, quality workmanship and dependability still holds true from my family to yours.
