Default Austin / San Antonio Maintenance Recommendations

Looking to get the 700's, trannies and drives serviced for the first time. Looking for a reliable service center who has experience on Mercury Racing products. South Austin Marine is one place I have found, but wanted feedback on them and recommendations on others. Thanks in advance.

I always use Full Throttle Marine in Spicewood.

Good luck!

Hit up Jim Speros www.mobilemercman.com

He's on this site under that screen name and is local in Austin.

I'd recommend Jim also. Very knowledgable, reliable, and no BS.

I own Full Throttle Marine. We are a Merc dealer and an authorized Whipple supercharger installation center, and the only high performance shop in central Texas. We can take care of any of your needs. We get high performance referals from South Austin Marine quite frequently.

All my motor work is done at FTM. They have done 3 motors for me one was supercharged. I can't say enough for the work they do.

I broke an outdrive last Saturday, so Bob will see my boat on Tuesday. (After Memorial Day, of course)
