Testimonials

Wes, 

Thanks for everything, Robert did a first class job on my boat he is a great asset along with your crew at Anglers Marine I will make sure I tell all of my friends about you and your crew. I look forward to seeing you later this year. Thanks, again! 
Joe Costner

Anglers Marine Crew,

You Guys Called me several weeks ago to see how my boat was doing after working on it for me. The call itself was service beyond my expectations. This was especially satisfying with my wife, kids, son-n-laws, and granddaughter on board. Anything mechanical can give trouble but good service is the key to continued use. You can bet I will recommend everything I know for service and boat purchases at Anglers Marine just as I did with CR Pointer. You do Make the Difference
