Hot Stuff! Boating During the Dog Days

Hot Stuff! Boating During the Dog Days

The ancients blamed the hot weather of July and August on Sirius, the intensely bright Dog Star. During these "dog days," an afternoon on the water can be especially refreshing, but hot weather can present boaters with challenges unique to the season.

Watch the Weather. The number on the thermometer doesn't tell the whole story, s...

What Our Customers Are Saying


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

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

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

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

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

"Dear Great Lakes, We received the black 6 1/2 inch boat cleats last week. We are using them for the folding doors in the entry way. They make great handles; we are getting a lot of compliments. We no longer have a boat, but love our "nautical room", and the "handles" look great in the room! Thanks for your prompt service. Sincerely, Louis and Beth K."

Louis K. of San Francisco, California

I received the plexiglas windshield in better condition than I expected. Your pictures did not do it justice! And with some minor adjustments this ought to fit my Tidecraft Bass Boat quite nicely. Thanks for the superior service.

David M. of Sonoma, California

My name is Sharon and I recently ordered a Gekko Swim Platform Pad from you. I have a 2003 Gekko Revo 6.7i ski boat that I was having worked on getting serviced, new carpet, detailed, etc…and I needed to replace the swim platform pad. The Gekko 3 piece set fit my platform perfectly and my boat looks like it just left the show room floor! I am extremely pleased! The boat shop had no idea what they were going to use on my platform but I was able to do a quick Google search and found you and the Gekko pad. Thank you so much for the perfect pad and for the fast professional service and delivery. I will definitely recommend your company to others and plan to use you often in the future.

Sharon S. of United States

I just received my order from your company and I'm extremely pleased with the quality and at such a great price !!! A local marine shop here in FLA wanted over $60 for the same item for only one (1) of the Nitro Live Well Mgt Systems, plus $90 per hour for the labor involved. Now I can go and update my Nitro 929 CDX and get both livewells up and running again myself. All I can say is thanks so much for offering such a fine quality product at such a great price. My feedback is: "Effortless transaction, great item offered, good price, super seller !!!"

Paul T. of Florida, USA

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!

Marcus M. of Australia

Just wanted to let you know my husband loved the new gauges. I could never have figured out what he needed without your patient help! Be assured we will make your store our first stop for new parts!

Marie L. of Port Coquitlam, BC, Canada

I just love the new website! I am not the brightest guy when it comes to computers. But the new Shop By Category list on the side made it so easy for me to find my propeller. On the old site I used the catalog buttons. Now, I can just run my mouse up and down the screen to get what I want. Very cool!!

Tom of Montana

Hello Great Lakes Skipper; I received my boat seats yesterday and I am very happy with your product. UPS did a good job of getting them to me overnight, just like you said. You (Daniel) and your knowledge played a big part in helping me choose the right seats for my boat. I will recommend Great Lake Skipper and your services to others. Thank you. L. Jared

L. J. of Greece

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

This is the first time I have ever felt even the desire to applaud a seller [on eBay].

Your company has gone above and beyond in helping me with providing me with a great product and service, and when there was a small defect in one marine temperature gauge from the package I got, you guys shipped me out another one 2 day priority shipping. I am taken aback by your generosity. I would have been perfectly satisfied with regular shipping as I know the engine isn’t overheating. Thank you so much for this gesture.

I will look at your guys store from now on for my marine needs if you have the parts I’m looking for.

I hope that your company stays in business for generations and that your business ethics remain the same. You have just earned my business and my referrals should I find anyone who is looking for any products you offer.

Thank you again.

David C. of Washington

I received my replacement order. The part arrived in excellent condition and I am very satisfied. When my first order arrived damaged I was skeptical about doing business with Great Lakes Skipper. I was very pleased with the way your company handled the return and promptly sent me the replacement. I am a happy customer and I will do business with you again. Thank you.

Paul B. of New Hampshire, USA

"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

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 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

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!
