Featured Work

  • “Bill is absolutely the best mechanic I know. After dealing with several local boat repair shops, I brought my boat to Bill and he was able to quickly diagnose and fix numerous problems with my new 5.7L mercruiser engine (24 ft Trophy). He dialed in my carburetor/fuel pump and also rewired my entire electrical system so that everything was on one fuse block and labeled. After that he replaced my shift and throttle cables (among many other things) and made everything on my boat work just the way I hoped for. He will get your boat problems fixed quickly for a reasonable price! There is nothing that Bill can’t do!!!”

  • “Wow the Appleton area just has gotten a real boat mechanic in your area. Bill was my boat mechanic in Eureka CA he had totally fixed most everything on my boat. I have a 231 walk around Pro-Line. He fixed my 351 Ford Windsor and went through my Volvo out Drive and made them both purr. He also went through most of my wiring and did carb repairs. I must say when he told me he was moving it hurt. Most honest boat mechanic I have ever known. As the saying goes ones loss is another’s treasures, Appleton area you just have received that treasure. I would Highly recommend giving him a try you won’t be disappointed.”
