Josh graduated with high honors from the Marine Power Distribution program at Eau Claire Technical College (EWTC) and went straight to a Mercury Marine service school in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. After graduating Josh took a position with a Fond du Lac-area marine dealership and quickly worked his way up to lead technician. During this time he became familiar with Mercury, Mariner, and MerCruiser engines.
After working as an engine technician for four years Josh took a position at Mercury Marine's headquarters in their Dealer Technical Service Department. In this position Josh was responsible for trouble shooting a wide-range of engine questions from authorized Mercury dealers across the country. Josh found this to be a very challenging but rewarding experience as the questions he faced related to over forty years of Mercury Marine products.
While at Mercury Marine Josh built on his knowledge of Mercury and Mariner products and ultimately completed his master certification in Mercury outboards, the highest technical certification a Mercury technician can achieve. The Mercury master certification is awarded to those who demonstrate outstanding performance and professionalism in providing the highest standards of service.
Josh spent four years in the Mercury Dealer Technical Service Department before deciding to realize his dream of opening his own boat dealership. After securing a great location for his dealership, a great line of boats to sell, along with the Mercury certification he already possessed, Josh decided it was time to offer the boaters of Central Wisconsin a new and exciting option for boat and engine sales and service.

Warranty Work: We aim to fix your engine right the first time, whether you purchased it from us or not. We feel we have the best training available on new product and also have the latest in diagnosing tools for all Mercury engines. If it's parts you need we can usually get them the next day!
Out-of-Warranty Work: Diagnosing your engine problem quickly saves you labor costs. Some dealers "throw parts" at engines to try to fix them. We feel this is a hit or miss approach that ends up costing you more money. We figure out the problem and get your approval before changing any parts.

We have a test pond for running and testing engines to better diagnose running issues. Why?
