Welcome To Our Boat Engine Repair Shop
We are proud to announce that we have now opened our own boat engine repair service. Since we have been specializing in the sale of boat engines for some time, we have opened our own specialist area for outboard motors and we also offer these boat motors in our online shop or in our physical store here in WY. We have decided to open our own workshop for repairing boat motors for all well-known manufacturers of engines but also of exotic engines.
So if you ever have problems with your boat engine, you are welcome to bring it to us or send it to us.
We take care of all problems that may arise with a boat engine. If your boat’s engine is running poorly or has other problems, our experts will take care of the problem and fix the engine for you.
We can get most of the spare parts for all common boat engines. Even if you have an exotic type of engine, we are able to get the spare parts within a very short time or to manufacture the required parts ourselves. Sometimes it takes a little longer until we can get various parts or make them ourselves, so you should give us some time for the repair.
Of course, we give a one-year warranty on our repair work!
Our team provides a complete line of boat repair services. Repairs often include replacing damaged or worn parts, sometimes parts that are damaged due to corrosion. Boat parts are built to last as long as you provide proper care and maintenance. The engine is one part, especially that you want to make sure is lubricated and free of corrosion.
If you are unsure how to fix your boat yourself or don’t have the proper tools needed to get the job done, it is important to bring your boat to a professional. If you don’t, you could run the risk of causing more damage. Having our team fix or service the following can save you time and money:

Outboard: 5 tips against engine breakdowns
Modern outboards are actually pretty reliable. With clean fuel and a good spark, there is little that can go wrong as long as you don’t scrape the bottom with the propeller. Service experts confirm that with the electronically controlled, lower-emission 4-stroke outboards with petrol injection and two-stroke engines with direct petrol injection, it is now the batteries and the fuel that are most likely to cause problems. But these tips should help you keep your engine fit for the coming season.
1. Service the fuel: Service technicians say that gasoline sometimes starts to oxidize within 2 weeks. This means that boats that are not used for several weeks can have dirty carburetors, which can have a negative impact on the next trip. You can get the freshest petrol at petrol stations that are busy. (In Italy, by the way, this also applies to coffee). Ethanol should be avoided because older machines in particular were not designed for it. If this is not possible, try to use gasoline with the lowest possible ethanol content. If you don’t use all of the gasoline immediately, add a stabilizer. If you leave the boat unused for more than a few weeks, add stabilized fuel and fill the tank full to prevent condensation.
2. Filter the fuel: Even if the engine has its own gasoline filter, consider installing a separate filter between the engine and the tank. Especially if you need to fill up with gasoline that has been mixed with ethanol. A replaceable filter element removes water and impurities from the fuel. For example, 10-micron filters are used, which must be matched to the capacity of the fuel pump.
3. Pamper your battery: If the battery has been more than a few seasons under its belt and it was not connected to a charger during winter storage, a new battery may be due. Otherwise, you should check the cable connections to make sure that they are clean and secure. The battery should also be mounted in a box and lashed down so that it stays secure while driving. If your boat has a battery switch, turn it off after using the boat to prevent accidental discharge. If the boat is not going to be used for an extended period of time and there is a powerpoint nearby, the battery should be kept connected to a charger.
4. Check the propeller: Nicks and notches in the propeller impair driving performance and should be repaired by a specialist. A propeller with a bent wing must be replaced immediately because it makes the screw unbalanced, which can lead to expensive defects. On smaller machines with a tiller or cable control, you feel a bent propeller blade as an additional vibration while driving, a bit like an imbalanced wheel on a car. Hydraulic steering systems on modern and larger boats mask this problem. An unbalanced propeller causes the shaft to flutter, which can damage the gearbox, or a leak in the shaft seal, which is also bad for the gearbox and the bearings. This can be tested simply by starting the engine (with the ignition breaker removed) in idle while the boat is on the trailer or in the bracket. If you then shift into gear and turn the propeller, you can tell whether it is running out of round. Do not forget that touching the ground in the mud can bend the wings without scratching the edges. If in doubt, ask a specialist workshop.
5. Shaft and seals: A common problem is fishing line wrapped around the propeller. The line collects between the propeller and the shaft seal. The thrust of the propeller can push the line into the seal and damage it. This allows water to penetrate the gear unit and damage it. This happens within a few minutes and involves a very expensive repair. With a little practice, you can pull off the propeller and inspect the shaft for unwanted fishing lines. But it is best not to throw useless fishing lines overboard in the first place.
Bonus tip: Never start the engine when it is not in the water unless you have connected a garden hose to flush the engine. A few seconds of operation would ruin the water pump’s rubber impeller, overheating the engine, creating very costly problems and inconveniences.
