What our customers are saying about us....

"My thanks to you and your staff for the excellent job in handling the service and additional requests made for my boat over the past several years. Its been reassuring to me each time I leave with my boat for the water that my boat will preform like it is supposed to. After so many attempts to have my vessel serviced in the Lake Murray community with little success, its nice to "actually get what your paying for" ! I was referred to your facility by word of mouth, and I have no problem with passing on a good word to my fellow boaters where I receive great service from. Please convey this word of thanks to your entire staff, and many thanks again." Ted Guantt

" Finally!! An honest person to take care of not only my boat but my family!! I am pleased beyond words. David is honest and lets you know what is best for your boat. I have turned my boat over to him and have complete confidence that it will be done correctly and for a VERY FAIR PRICE. After a bad experience with another marine, meeting David and letting him repair the mess, I could not be happier. A+ #1 " PalmettoBizBuzz

"My small problem was bigger than I thought. David asked a few questions and told me exactly what the problem was. Then, I had lots of questions which he answered fully and then solved another problem I had. He did not have the part but found it at a local parts shop. The help is extremely appreciated and has won my business and I will recommend Boat Doctor Inc. to everyone I know who owns a boat. " PalmettoBizBuzz

"This is the best boat maintenance shop I have ever seen. Timely, thorough, clean and excellent quality. My boat and motor of 24 years still runs as well today as when I bought it new. I know it is because of the best mechanic in the business in David Perry, The Boat Doctor. His service is fast and complete." Madison Dye

"Angie and I just completed the initial break in period on our new engine. We can not thank you enough for your professionalism and service during this process. You Rock! We found out in early May that our worst fears were true and our block cracked over the long winter. We enjoy the lake so much, it was hard to imagine a summer without a boat. I emailed several marine repair shops over the weekend and hoped that we could find someone to help us. You were the first to reply to my request on Monday morning. This timely response set the stage for one of the best service experiences I have had with a repair shop. Your communications with us were clear and accurate. Thanks for your patience as we discussed the various options available. I loved the photo updates as the old engine was pulled out and the new one assembled. You knew we had vacation scheduled and you delivered the boat right on schedule. I appreciate the fact that the boat was immaculate when we got it back. I bless you and your shop every time I turn the key. Our boat runs like a champ. We're back on the water for a fun summer! We will always trust you to take care of her going forward. As far as we're concerned, you are the only Boat Dr. on Lake Murray! As one service professional to another, job well done!" Donna Rhodes
