What Our Customers Are Saying


I bought a Cherrywood folding boat table top last week and I want you to know that I was very impressed with the services and how quickly it got to me. I want to let you also know that the table is gorgeous! I was a little unsure about having it shipped to Canada but you did such a great job wrapping it that when I got it in less than 3 business days it was perfect, not a scratch. Thank you so much. I am now going to order the table parts from you. This website is now under favourites. You made it such a pleasure shopping with you.

Elaine C. of Ontario, Canada

Thank you very much for sending me a replacement part. I wanted to let you and your management know that I think very highly of your customer service, which is knowledgeble, courteous, and fair-minded.

John G . of VA

Hi Great Lakes Skipper; Thank you. The piano hinges arrived yesterday afternoon and they are just what we need. Thanks so much for the great service too. Be assured that we will buy from you again!

Rick and Bonnie D. of Tennessee

Thank you for the premium OMC boat propeller. It is exactly what I wanted and the prop shipment arrived very fast. Your service is very good. I give your store and service a very, very high rating.

Gerald F. of Baton Rouge, LA

Thank you for your excellent service. I'm very pleased with the overall development of my order. Your web site is very comfortable to surf and the quality and prices are unique. You have a new customer in me. Godspeed Skipper !!

Angel V. of Puerto Rico

Thank you so much for the great deal on the Medallion gauges. I couldn't believe you had them... especially for under $20 each! Thanks again Skip, I've already told several friends about your great store!

Randy P. of Teaneck, NJ

Skipper -- I just wanted to write you to say thanks for saving me a bunch of money! I bought the trolling motor from you guys for the first time. Well I shorted out the wiring on installation (I should have had my dealer install it). I was going to pay out all that money to ship it back, but you pointed out that the warranty card was still in the box. I contacted the manufacturer and they performed the repairs done at no charge. Heck, the dealer (who did the work) even installed the motor on the boat for no additional charge. I will certainly be buying all my boat parts there. Thanks!! Mick.

Hi, I would just like to take the time to note the wonderful help and service of [employee name removed] from the shipping department in regards to my last order. I had an issue with an item I received and the issue was handled with professionalism, promptness, and courtesy. I just felt the need to make note of this service. It is becoming increasingly rare to find customer service at this level. Thanks!

Tytus of USA

Hi there. The beige Bimini Top I ordered was delivered today. I am impressed with the quality. It is definitely not one of those cheap, flimsy ones sold at [big box marine store name removed]. It is A1 -- FIRST CLASS -- like it was described. And KUDOS on the packing by your shipping team. It was quite a task to unwrap and unpack the Bimini Top. Thank you very much! It was well worth the money!

Dave N. of Portland, ME

"One of the best online purchases I have ever made! I placed the order online and then called to see if they could speed up the shipping. Jean made arrangements to ship my order by DHL. Would you believe it was shipped on Wednesday and arrived clear of customs by Thursday afternoon? Wow! My husband just loved the seats and now he is getting ready to take me on a romantic dinner cruise with his new seats! Thanks for spicing up our live up here. Happy boating! Nancy"

Nancy P. of Vancouver, BC

"EXCELLENT! I could not have asked for a nicer bimini. Our dealer wanted more than twice as much. If you are ever in town, stop in... got plenty of stripers to throw on the grill!"

Lyle O. of Tarpon Springs

Kudos for the above and beyond service on getting my control here on time. It was exactly what I needed, and saved a bundle too!

Jay B. of Tempe, AZ

You guys are the absolute best!!!! I am letting everyone I know about great lakes skipper. You guys have a lot of off the wall stuff that just isn't available anymore... like this oil tank kit. OBSOLETE :( --

D D. of Indiana USA

Hello! I just thought I would write and tell you that the boat upholstery that we ordered from your upholstery shop for our trawler was everything that we hoped for with respect to the color depiction on your website. Our cushions turned out beautifully, and we couldn't believe how fast we received your product. Thank you, once again, and we will be referring our boating friends to your website with great enthusiasm!

Bob and Arlene P. of Forida

I received the Seats the other day, (Fantastic) Exactly what I was looking for, style and color is spot on. Packaging and wrapping was excellent no damage to goods. Firstly I want to thank you for your excellent service you provided and prompted response on emails. Secondly some feedback on your web site, very informative and clear. Very Good. Thanks again.

Nick of California

Thank you very much for the Medallion gauges. I have been looking for these gauges for over two years as I am restoring an old Larson and these are beautiful. Believe me, I am telling all my fellow boaters to check you out!

K. H. of Bowling Green, KY

I just bought one of your Sea Pro Fishing Rod Rocket Launcher Racks and I'm EXTREMELY happy with the entire transaction! Super Heavy Duty Quality and one of the BEST BARGAINS I have found on the internet! Easily worth 3 times what you could get for one of these. Anyone looking at one of these should grab it before they are gone! It shipped really fast and was well protected. I don't work for Great Lakes Skipper. I am just a really happy customer of theirs. Please post this testimonial for all to see. Thanks again. What a great deal!!!

Paul H. of New Hampshire

After ordering and purchasing 10 Gebo portlights to be shipped to Gosport ,UK, would just like to thank you all for your great service, ease of transaction and good email updates via you and ups. The total amount including UK import and taxes came to $2054.. These same portlights purchased in the UK would have cost me $4002 plus shipping ! The portlights are superb quality and totally transform the look of my boat and best of all, no more leaks! Crazy that a product made in the EU can be bought much cheaper from the states?

Andy P.

Just wanted to let you know that the Livorsi gauges I got from you are working perfectly. I was concerned about spending as much as I did on a first order with some one I had never done business with, but you guys are great. Now I got my eye on a bass boat - I'll be back!

David S. of Hillsboro, OR

My replacement lights arrived safe and well yesterday, so a big 'thankyou' for your wonderful efforts. I cannot tell you how delighted I am with the quality of the items and most importantly, how swiftly and courteously our small problem was rectified. It is always a bit of a leap into the unknown buying items from overseas and my experience with Great Lakes Skipper is the best to date - your customer service is first class! You may be assured of my return business, and once again, thank you!
