Update-DO NOT BUY A BOAT FROM THIS SHADY COMPANYI brought the boat back to them for Winter Storage and asked for a routine tune up. They then came back and said the boat does not have the original gears and they scarred me into getting them fixed. They said I would have serious problems down the road if don't fix this ASAP. Being a newer boater, I spent around $2,200 to get this fixed even though the boat ran fine last year and I don't think the prior owner had problems either considering I have all his service records.On May 5th of this year, I picked up the boat for a Spring launch and asked to take a test spin with the mechanic. During the test spin, the engine was misfiring badly and needed to be fixed. They spent 4 hours working on it and basically put a band-aid on it. The mechanic said come back after 20 hours of using it and they will fix it if anything goes wrong. Well, the engine is completely messed up and continues to back fire after about 15-20 hours. I called up the service department to ask for the record of what they did for 4 hours and surprisingly the HAVE NO RECORD OF WHAT THEY DID. I had another mechanic run a diagnostic test and he says they messed up the timing put I have zero compression in one of my cylinders.I then asked Battery Park to take a look at it and they told me tough luck we won't help you and how do we know the other mechanic didn't screw it up? They were the ones that found the problems and only did a diagnostic test. She then told me that the mechanic told me I have the wrong prop on my boat? First off, he never told me that and I would have never boat a boat with the wrong gears and wrong prop.Battery Park sold me a junk boat and then swindled me into getting repairs that they won't even fix what they started. Oh and I'm now looking at maybe putting another $4-5 grand in repairs. BOTTOM LINE-DO NOT BUY OR SERVICE YOUR BOAT HERE!!!!!

DO NOT DOCK HERE!! Their web site is misleading.. They advertise a bunch of docks but their marina has docks that are no even accessible, they just float??? We tried to dock there and the owner came out and told us to leave! he had a phone and told us he was calling the police! Total jerk! My neighbor was lied to about bait at this place (they said they had perch minnows) but when he got there all they had was HUGE walleye minnows. STAY away
