Rudders and Wheels

Rudders and Wheels

Nowadays, steering a boat doesn't require much thought; the boat goes where you turn the wheel. Those of us who use an outboard motor know that steering with a tiller is not like steering a car. You want the rudder to point the way you want to go, which means pointing the tiller in the opposite direction. After the invention of the ship's wheel about 1703, the transition from rudder orders to wheel orders was not without difficulty, and sometimes resulted in tragedy.

Thank you GLS for for parts that I needed. Also great & speedy service.

Joseph of New Jersey, USA

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

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

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

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

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

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 Florida

Just ordered 3 sets of grab handles for my MX175 Glastron 2008. Perfect match. You're on my favorites list. Great photos too.

David W. of California

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

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. Jared

Jared L. of Greece

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/

Louis of California, USA

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

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

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 of British Columbia, 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

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! The sales rep who assisted me was awesome, knowledgeable and friendly! Will be doing business with you guys again very soon!

Lorin C. of Savannah, Georgia

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!
