Cedar Lake Sales VS Keith's Marina
Cedar Lake Sales is my choice, for all the years I have stopped in there for parts or service, they have been nothing short of the best, I have not purchased a boat through them yet, but always been treated well and have had any and all questions answered . Highly recommend
They are busy in summer for repairs, however, they are busy because their mechanics are good.
At first I was going to have them do the rigging, until I started talking to their riggers. When I told them how I wanted things, they looked at me, like a deer in head lights. I decided to do my own.
They never offered a walk through, when I picked the boat up. However, I would've told them I didn't want one, because I am familiar with boats. I got the boat home, installed everything on the boat. I was installing the transducers, looked at the prop, they put a rebuilt prop on the boat. I took it off, ran up there, told them what I thought of their business, after I got a NEW prop.
I have a few more issues with them, but I think you all understand what I'm saying.
I got home with the prop, I said to my wife, I know boats, and know how they tried to screw me over. I feel sorry for the first time boat buyer, that doesn't have a clue.
And that's what Keiths is, a first time boat buyers dealership. I doubt they have very few repeat buyers.
All they offer is a better price on the same size boat as a crestliner. That is the main reason I went with them
Anyone I know looking for a boat, if they ask me about Keiths, I tell them to stay far away, unless they are looking just at the price. But don't expect any customer service
And I can attest that the folks at Cedar Lake Sales are nothing but the best and top notch in my eyes. From the two borthers who own it to their parts people and their mechanics ad their office people have alays treated me like I was family and I would highly recommend them for anything marine wise
