Notes From The Skipper


Father's Day: Remembering Dad

Father's Day: Remembering Dad

Happy Father's Day, dads! We're celebrating with cookouts, steak dinners, and boat rides, as well as remembering our fathers who have passed away. This is a story from our own Gene W. about a fearless backwoods boy his father knew in the Army, and the happiness Gene feels when he remembers how much his father loved to tell this story.

Why Use A Jack Plate?

Why Use A Jack Plate?

Save 10% off jack plates and motor mounts through June 9, 2018!

What the heck is a jack plate, anyway? It's a movable plate that mounts to the transom and lets you raise and lower your boat's outboard motor. Here are a couple of reasons you might want to be able to do that.

What Our Customers Are Saying


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

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

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/

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?

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.

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

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

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

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

Joseph of New Jersey, USA

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.
