Not only did Mickey and all his employees back every lie that his good friend Bill stated. He told me this boat was flawless and Mickey, Bill, and associates had re-built it together. The first major discovery was all the cheap ply-wood and cross supports hacked into the hull that according to them was top grade marine wood from somewhere in Detroit. Second they had cut multiple sections and holes out of the original stringers. The best lie was the motor that they had stated was out of low hour scrap boat which I discovered has a cracked block that has been JB-WELDED and well hidden. So is this where u would like to take your hard earned money to have your boat painted,serviced etc. These are some very shady individuals that have zero reservations about lying to your face just to get your money. The paint job by Widener was no better then I could do in my garage at inflated rates. I am putting this out there and warning anyone who thinks about doing business with this company or any of his associates or friends to find a company that is honest,genuine.

They quoted me a certain price. Then when I went to pick up the boat the next day, they attempted to charge me four times that amount! I never received a phone call stating it was going to cost me more than the quote nor was work stopped until I could be contacted. Furthermore, some of the work was “rigged” as my trolling motor was being held in place with a bungee cord...Which was going to cost me even more money to get fixed! Their pleasant attitude quickly changed when I challenged the bill amount to the point where I had to call the police to help me due to their "Brow-Beating" techniques (calling me “cheap”, saying “we have your boat and you can’t have it until you pay us the full amount” etc.). Thankfully the police did assist and I was able to take my boat and pay only the amount quoted. Don't trust these people. My next step will be following up with the Better Business Bureau.
