The review by "Triton R." is an obvious fake by probably an ex-employee who holds a grudge. The facts are this: the name "Triton" is a company name of one of Tecnadyne's customers, not the name of this imposter who is using it to just to write a fake review and seek vengance against Tecnadyne.
I had gotten a couple of products from this place and the first time the thruster came to me inoperable, so i ask for a replacement and the customer service was horrible. unwilling to fix what they sent to me inop in the first place!
Buyers beware! I bought a used boat from Kent at Hipp Marine and I really wish I hadn't. I could go on and on here for hours about why you should stay away from Hipp Marine but let me sum it up with a quote from Kent "We are a broker and buying a boat from us is like buying a boat from a private party. We have no liability as to the condition and safety of the products that we sell".Kent sold me a boat that he assured me had been fully serviced and was in perfect working condition. It turns out that this was not at all the case. I was able to get a copy of the service records and which confirmed that Kent had been lying to me all along. Why did I need the service records? Because since the first day I had the boat out on the water I've had nothing but problems and had to spend nearly a thousand dollars on parts, repairs, and service. Had I known then what I know now about Kent's incompetence and dishonesty and Hipp Marine's overall lack of care for its customers, I definitely would have purchased a used boat elsewhere.If you do decide to go to Hipp Marine, take your well known and trusted boat expert with you....don't believe ANYTHING that Kent tells you...everything he says is a lie or at best just his way of telling you what you want to hear when he really has no idea of the true answer.Please understand....as a buyer you always buy at your own risk HOWEVER you should mitigate that risk by avoiding Hipp Marine. It is clear to me that they have no morals or ethical responsibility when they sold me a boat that was completely unsafe.
VERY GOOD PRICES!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND OIL FILTER SERVICE FOR ALL YOUR FILTERS AND MORE.
I have just completed my training classes for diving and i am moving on to my deep dive off the Marissa, the staff has been really helpful even telling me when the sales were to get the best deals on equipment. I missed one of my classes and they accomidated my wokring with my schedule to get me in the next available class. I really like what they do here and would definetly recommend this place to learn how to dive.
