The owner, Dave, quoted $175 to get it ready for summer. As he was asking us questions, I got a bad feeling. My gut was telling me he was trying to find out how much we knew about boats so he could BS us and get more money out of us. I told Mike my feelings when we got home. Sure enough, Dave called us to say the engine was shot, but hey, he could put in another for $7,000 or "take it off our hands" for $3,600 and put us in a $15,000 boat. I disagreed and told him I wanted a second opinion. He then got haughty and told me that would be a waste of money. I instructed not to do any more work and we would pick the boat up. They had dismantled the outboard and other parts when we picked the boat up. He still wanted the $175, but did cut it down to $125. We took the boat home. A couple of Mike's friends started working on it and, guess what, the engine started right up. There was a kill switch to be turned on, apparently. We approached Dave again, showed him the video of the boat starting, and wanted our money back. He said he had to talk to the guy working on it. We complied and one of our friends went with us to talk to him. Dave had to talk to him alone. When he was done, Dave came out and said he wasn't going to give our money back because we "paid him for an opinion." I said, no, we paid you to get it ready for summer. You didn't do that. He said he didn't know what miracle happened to get the engine running, but he stood by his opinion the engine was blown. He also claimed he didn't want us to spend any money on the boat and advised as such. I called him on his BS and he called me a bully. My advice, do not take your boat to this guy.

I have taken my Audi TT to him for two different issuses, both times he completed the repairs in the time frame and for the price we agreed . If you need a great mechanic at a fair price, do yourself a favor and call Automotive Dynamics.

We are new to the area and I needed to have work completed on my Mercedes. A neighbor recommended Atlanta Autohaus and I am so grateful for the guys there. They were very professional and completed the work within a reasonable amount of time. I love the fact that they have a mobile component to their business; I've never been to a shop that offers that type of convenience. My husband drives a Toyota into the city everyday and he works late. He needed his breaks fixed and they went to his office and repaired his breaks without any hesitation. I have no complaints and I am glad my neighbors suggested we check them out. You should too!
