Trust, But Verify, Part 1: Fuel Gauges

Trust, But Verify, Part 1: Fuel Gauges

With certain parts exposed to the elements, your boat's gauges and their sensors can take a beating. If you suspect that your gauge is not giving you an accurate reading, we have some hints for how to figure out the problem and how to fix it.

Blackbeard!

Blackbeard!

The most famous pirate of all time, Blackbeard, died three hundred years ago this week. He inspired Robert Louis Stevenson's Long John Silver and J. M. Barrie's Captain Hook, and has been portrayed on film by actors like Ian McShane and Peter Ustinov. As well known as he is, there is much about him that remains mysterious.

What Our Customers Are Saying


Just wanted to let you know my husband loved the new gauges. I could never have figured out what he needed without your patient help! Be assured we will make your store our first stop for new parts!

Marie L. of Port Coquitlam, BC, Canada

I just bought one of your Sea Pro Fishing Rod Rocket Launcher Racks and I'm EXTREMELY happy with the entire transaction! Super Heavy Duty Quality and one of the BEST BARGAINS I have found on the internet! Easily worth 3 times what you could get for one of these. Anyone looking at one of these should grab it before they are gone! It shipped really fast and was well protected. I don't work for Great Lakes Skipper. I am just a really happy customer of theirs. Please post this testimonial for all to see. Thanks again. What a great deal!!!

Paul H. of New Hampshire

Thank you for your excellent service. I'm very pleased with the overall development of my order. Your web site is very comfortable to surf and the quality and prices are unique. You have a new customer in me. Godspeed Skipper !!

Angel V. of Puerto Rico

Right On! Thank you so much for your quick response and for correcting my shipping address. Your company really understands customer service and you saved me a ton of money by catching and fixing my shipping mistake. I will use your company every time in the future and am gladly recommending you to all my boating friends. Thanks again .

Richard M. of Canada

You guys are the absolute best!!!! I am letting everyone I know about great lakes skipper. You guys have a lot of off the wall stuff that just isn't available anymore... like this oil tank kit. OBSOLETE :( --

D D. of Indiana USA

My name is Sharon and I recently ordered a Gekko Swim Platform Pad from you. I have a 2003 Gekko Revo 6.7i ski boat that I was having worked on getting serviced, new carpet, detailed, etc…and I needed to replace the swim platform pad. The Gekko 3 piece set fit my platform perfectly and my boat looks like it just left the show room floor! I am extremely pleased! The boat shop had no idea what they were going to use on my platform but I was able to do a quick Google search and found you and the Gekko pad. Thank you so much for the perfect pad and for the fast professional service and delivery. I will definitely recommend your company to others and plan to use you often in the future.

Sharon S. of United States

Thank you so much for the great deal on the Medallion gauges. I couldn't believe you had them... especially for under $20 each! Thanks again Skip, I've already told several friends about your great store!

Randy P. of Teaneck, NJ

100% is not enough.1,000,000% overall satisfaction. Very lucky to find your store!

Odom of Hawaii, USA

After ordering and purchasing 10 Gebo portlights to be shipped to Gosport ,UK, would just like to thank you all for your great service, ease of transaction and good email updates via you and ups. The total amount including UK import and taxes came to $2054.. These same portlights purchased in the UK would have cost me $4002 plus shipping ! The portlights are superb quality and totally transform the look of my boat and best of all, no more leaks! Crazy that a product made in the EU can be bought much cheaper from the states?

Andy P.

Hi Great Lakes Skipper; Thank you. The piano hinges arrived yesterday afternoon and they are just what we need. Thanks so much for the great service too. Be assured that we will buy from you again!

Rick and Bonnie D. of Tennessee

I just received my order from your company and I'm extremely pleased with the quality and at such a great price !!! A local marine shop here in FLA wanted over $60 for the same item for only one (1) of the Nitro Live Well Mgt Systems, plus $90 per hour for the labor involved. Now I can go and update my Nitro 929 CDX and get both livewells up and running again myself. All I can say is thanks so much for offering such a fine quality product at such a great price. My feedback is: "Effortless transaction, great item offered, good price, super seller !!!"

Paul T. of Florida, USA

Kudos for the above and beyond service on getting my control here on time. It was exactly what I needed, and saved a bundle too!

Jay B. of Tempe, AZ

I received the Seats the other day, (Fantastic) Exactly what I was looking for, style and color is spot on. Packaging and wrapping was excellent no damage to goods. Firstly I want to thank you for your excellent service you provided and prompted response on emails. Secondly some feedback on your web site, very informative and clear. Very Good. Thanks again.

Nick of California

I got my Lowrance 510c Fishfinder today. I don't know how to thank you guys. We had a small mixup on the first order and you guys were on the ball and sorted it out. You're so honest and trustworthy company. You guys are the best and I will tell all I know about your great service. I am so far away in Aussie, but when I need things for my boat, you're there to help out. I am one very happy man! Cheers and thanks again.

Roscoe of Australia

Hello Great Lakes Skipper; I received my boat seats yesterday and I am very happy with your product. UPS did a good job of getting them to me overnight, just like you said. You (Daniel) and your knowledge played a big part in helping me choose the right seats for my boat. I will recommend Great Lake Skipper and your services to others. Thank you. Jared

Jared L. of Greece

This is the first time I have ever felt even the desire to applaud a seller [on eBay].

Your company has gone above and beyond in helping me with providing me with a great product and service, and when there was a small defect in one marine temperature gauge from the package I got, you guys shipped me out another one 2 day priority shipping. I am taken aback by your generosity. I would have been perfectly satisfied with regular shipping as I know the engine isn’t overheating. Thank you so much for this gesture.

I will look at your guys store from now on for my marine needs if you have the parts I’m looking for.

I hope that your company stays in business for generations and that your business ethics remain the same. You have just earned my business and my referrals should I find anyone who is looking for any products you offer.

Thank you again.

David C. of Washington

Hi there. The beige Bimini Top I ordered was delivered today. I am impressed with the quality. It is definitely not one of those cheap, flimsy ones sold at [big box marine store name removed]. It is A1 -- FIRST CLASS -- like it was described. And KUDOS on the packing by your shipping team. It was quite a task to unwrap and unpack the Bimini Top. Thank you very much! It was well worth the money!

Dave N. of Portland, ME

EXCELLENT! I could not have asked for a nicer bimini. Our dealer wanted more than twice as much. If you are ever in town, stop in... got plenty of stripers to throw on the grill!

Lyle of Florida, USA

I bought a Cherrywood folding boat table top last week and I want you to know that I was very impressed with the services and how quickly it got to me. I want to let you also know that the table is gorgeous! I was a little unsure about having it shipped to Canada but you did such a great job wrapping it that when I got it in less than 3 business days it was perfect, not a scratch. Thank you so much. I am now going to order the table parts from you. This website is now under favourites. You made it such a pleasure shopping with you.

Elaine C. of Ontario, Canada

Thank you very much for sending me a replacement part. I wanted to let you and your management know that I think very highly of your customer service, which is knowledgeble, courteous, and fair-minded.
