Gwynn’s Island Mini Update
Labor Day weekend is here! With the recent heat and humidity, I didn’t know if we’d survive! And not only are some of you surviving, but absolutely slaying the Spanish mackerel! Check out Chris Neisz with his 4.2lb Spanish Mackerel he caught recently.
As hot as it’s been lately, we can’t forget that cooler temps will be here soon enough. We want to remind everyone to schedule their winterization and off-season service packages. If you are thinking this is too early, there is too much boating left to do… we agree. Due to supply shortages and longer lead time on parts, we are asking you to schedule your winterization now. If you are planning any larger mechanical service for your boat this off season, schedule it now as some parts are 6-8 weeks out for lead times. Don’t delay on this one…due to supply chain challenges, your boat could literally be left in the cold in you don’t schedule your offseason maintenance with us soon!
Please see the list of our popular winter services. Email or call the office today to get on the schedule, and don’t forget to ask about our promotions for those who have their winterization completed prior to October 15th. If you plan on using your boat into November, schedule now as winterization time slots are limited. Don’t forget our First Frost usually occurs prior to November 10th.
