Good Optimax Mechanic?

3 posts in this topic

My Opti 225 went kaput awhile back and I need to have it fixed. It is a 2002 and under warranty. I am wondering if anyone has any recommendations on where to get it fixed. If possible I would like someplace I could just bring it in have them fix it and store it for the winter. I live in Bloomington so south would be best but I am not opposed to driving for the best service. Any help appreciated. Thanks

Pherris, I have a buddy who has used Frankies in Chisago City and has been totally satisfied with their service. He has tried several other places and was NOT impressed.

pherris, I tried Southside Marine in Waseca this past spring and was very impressed. My Mariner has never run this well and I would assume he could do the same with a Merc.

    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
