  • Action Marine
    Action Marine keeps cutters in wave-cruising order with its comprehensive boat-maintenance services. A recommended part of the summerizing process, boat tune-ups are overseen by Action Marine’s certified technicians, whose constant training keeps them up-to-date on techniques for stomping out nautical nuisances on ships from manufacturers such as Mercury, Yamaha, MerCruiser, and Johnson. A typical tune-up involves inspecting the fuel and wires, replacing overworked filters and rotors, and making sure spark plugs haven't been replaced with vintage Game Boys. Mechanics also take a deeper look at engines, preventing mean-spirited contaminants from spiking the fuel with water. Once properly tuned, boats shake off the rust accrued during a wintery off-season, smoothly navigating summer seas while providing the low harmonies in all-boat Beach Boys cover bands.

  • Chicago Sea Ray
    Size is no object at SkipperBud's, where all forms of aquatic fun line their shelves, from water-wings on up to yachts. Though the shop doesn't actually line the walls with multi-ton vessels, it does store smaller recreational vehicles in dry stack, pulling entire boats off high shelves with an enormous, specially outfitted forklift. Inside the store proper, staff keeps neat displays of more conventionally-sized gear, including watersporting apparel such as skis and life vests to boating accessories, such as anchors and bumper stickers to slap on the bottom of a ship's hull that say, "If you can read this, you are a really smart fish." To keep boaters covered in the office, SkipperBud's deals in a variety of storage and maintenance packages. They shield private vessels from the elements during winter months in vast warehouses, and perform tune-ups and major repairs to engines and fiberglass hulls.
