Mercury Service

Recommended Posts

I bought a new boat a few months ago, a 2001 Alumacraft Bass 166 with a 2002 50 horse Merc on it. In the past I had an older Johnson and always had it serviced at Maplewood Marine. I don't believe they work on Mercs Who does the best work with Mercs. It needs a new prop and general service in the spring.

Rapid Sports Marine in Ham Lake.

My new Merc 4 stroke had an issue at the get go and it had been back to the dealer I purchased my new boat from about 11 times in a year and a half. They could not figure it out.

So, I called LUND and they asked me if I would be willing to take it up to Ham Lake to the dealer there and I said if they can fix it, then yes as it was about 100 miles one way for me.

I called them and took it up the next day and they called back in 2 days and said the boat was done and I have never had another issue with it since,

I know there are some who say that they are a bit spendy but they were the dealer who finally found the gremlin in the motor.

I would go there again in a heartbeat as they do know what they are doing with the Merc motors.

Simply fishing extreme marine in Wyoming without a doubt. Best Merc service you will receive. I have heard horror stories about service at Rapid.

What about Hannays on highway 88, I think it is in St Anthony. I have bought a few little things for my boat there, but never have had service done.

My experience with Rapid. bad customer service. Bought a brand new motor from them. Tracked grease all over my carpet, broke a torpedo launcher style rod holder in the back end of my boat interior, promised to take care of it as I was picking the boat up at closing time. Called several times to follow up was given the run around every time. End result, I live three miles from their store and make a point of not doing business with them, ever.

BTW. I've owned five Mercurys since 1985. Always been very happy with the motors.

Thanks for all the info. I think I will try Hannays, I live almost down the street and they have been very nice when I have gone in there.

    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home. 
    • MJ 1657 I just bought an M50. Mills had them on sale for $129.99. The infared version was $139.99. Only been using it for about a week and so far I like it. That buck in the night time pictures is quite a ways out from the camera.    I've had a Moultrie 880 for years and it's been a solid camera.    MJ Did this Moultrie have picture video at the same time like the old 880? I have not found another camera to do that but the Moultrie and it's great. I'm running out of this version only have two left now.
