Notes From The Skipper

The Luck of the Irish

The Luck of the Irish

Humans have been boating for tens of thousands of years. Spear points found on the Greek island of Naxos suggest that even Neanderthals took to the waves as long as a quarter of a million years ago. The far-flung islands of the vast Pacific Ocean were discovered by ancient seafarers, some of whom built the mysterious moai statues on Easter Island eight hundred years ago.

Bimini Bonanza!

Bimini Bonanza!

We've all been surprised by a summer shower when we're out on the boat. Having a bimini top to pop up can make all the difference when the rain moves in. A good bimini also shields sensitive skin from the sun's strong rays, and provides cool shade in which to relax.

What Our Customers Are Saying

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

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

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 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

100% is not enough.1,000,000% overall satisfaction. Very lucky to find your store!

Odom of Hawaii, 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

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

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

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

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 of Florida, USA

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

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

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

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

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
