Our Fans


I don’t run with the big boys in regards to boats, just a girl with a little 18′ Crest pontoon boat, but Richard made sure pontoons were solid and I had the right prop and spare on my boat before I hit the water. He also made sure I knew how to change the prop and took the time to show me, even though he was crazy busy. I won’t go anywhere else for props or pontoon help.

I tried the prop calculator, my props done by a computer and came back to Richard. I don’t trust anyone else with my propellers.

26ft Domn8er/Bravo I

We watched Rich through his process with our lab finished 26p Bravo. It was dragged on the launch ramp. We were told by another company it could not be fixed. He hammered, welded, grinded, polished, there were parts we couldn’t watch. When he was done we couldn’t find where the prop had been hit. It looks like I just bought it, it performs better.
