Notes From The Skipper


Fall into Late-Season Boating

Fall into Late-Season Boating

There's so much to love about autumn: the beautiful colors on the trees, the crisp air, the special blue of the November sky. There's no line at the boat launch, lots of space at the docks, and open water as far as the eye can see. It's nice to have the beach and water to oneself.

With the end of peak boating season, marinas scale back services. You might not be able to refuel late in the day if the pumps close early, and you can't count on bait shops to stay open in the evening, eith...

Waves of Wonder: 5 Activities for Young Boaters

Waves of Wonder: 5 Activities for Young Boaters

School's back in session, which means (for most of us) no more long weekdays with the kids on the boat. Make the most of weekend boat rides with fun and educational activities that everyone can enjoy.

The road trip guessing-game "I Spy" gains a new dimension on boat rides, where interesting things can be "spied" in the water and sky as well as on the shore. Kids can spy green fish, white birds, red buoys, and countless colored boats, and have fun guessing each other's items.

What Our Customers Are Saying


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

A great company for boat parts. A friend recommended, they are a great company with great customer service and can be trusted.

Ron H. of Melrose Park, IL

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

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

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

FIRST RATE SERVICE! Just a quick note to say GREAT JOB with your customer service and overall service. The original phone order operator was very friendly and she knew the products. The shipping time was fast. Sadly when the product arrived it was damaged. Since the product was no longer in stock, [your customer service representative] went to work for a solution. He kept me informed along the way. Although he could not get a replacement, his efforts were to keep me happy. In the end we found a satisfactory solution. My overall experience with your company has been a delight in these times where there are so many dishonest and shady companies around. Your site is located on my favorites for marine parts and will be the first choice when ordering future parts and supplies.

Rick B. of Clifton Park, NY

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 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

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

Never had such prompt service. I ordered my boat parts on Thursday, flew home Friday night, and the package was there when I got home!!

Warren H. of Ohio

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

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

"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

"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

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

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

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 got my Lowrance 510c Fishfinder today. I don't know how to thank you guys. We had a small mixup on the first order and you guys were on the ball and sorted it out. You're so honest and trustworthy company. You guys are the best and I will tell all I know about your great service. I am so far away in Aussie, but when I need things for my boat, you're there to help out. I am one very happy man! Cheers and thanks again.

Roscoe of Australia

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.
