I didn't buy my boat from Wonderland but I've had it serviced there 3 times. I have no complaints and they've had it done early everytime. It just went in for #4 this morning for some minor stuff that I've been procrastinating on. I'll let you know how it goes.
Gobyhooker, I am on there pro staff at Wonderland and they have treated me well since I have been involved with them. They do have a twenty bay service department. They service most makes of motors and are a direct Minn Kota service dealer.
If you have any questions on the Lowe's or service, feel free to contact me.
The warranty and service is the biggest part in buying a boat now days the motors aren’t like they use to be just plugs and go, now everything is electronic it takes a qualified technician that knows what he is doing. Mad Man I was just looking for something around 15 or 16' small motor just to take the kids fishing. Thanks for the info I'm just looking through the fence right now, but would like to get something before the Perch run.
I bought my 2003 Stratos from Wonderland in March. Very good sales staff and I had a few extras thrown in for free, or just above dealer cost. I have had only one trip to the Service Department and it was not a positive one. I have however talked with many other boaters who have bought from Wonderland that have only good things to say...which is why I bought from Wonderland in the first place.
Another option would be D&R Sports in K-Zoo. They rig and sell 400-500 boats a year, so are well versed in every aspect of selling, rigging, and servicing boats. They have some boats on www.dandrsports.com
