Default Thank You BAM Marine

As you all have probably read the thread about me losing some trannies in a fire at Big Cats house, I am finally ready for the water. Upon locating some used trannies, I contacted Mark at BAM and mentioned my situation. He proceeded to let me know he would go through and upgrade my trannies at a very reasonable price. As well, when received, he would have them completed in 1 week. Well, upon shipping them to him, he contacted me right away to let me know they arrived and to confirm what HP I would be running through them. Just a few days later, Mark contacted me to let me know they were complete, and the price was as stated earlier. 2 days later, I received my trannies back in what I would call new condition, new paint and looking like they just came off the shelf.
I just wanted to say thank you and after being in the high performance boating for many years, it was a pleasure and a breath of fresh air dealing with BAM.
Thanks again Mark!

GREAT to hear about awesome stories like this one.

Now post up a picture of your boat using those new trannies

Bruce,
Are still up for a trip to Bahamas sometime after HURRICANE season is over? I've meet another guy here in Melbourne that's been a bunch of times and he wants to go again.

Forgot to get pics of the trannies due to the time crunch of trying to get them put in the following day, so here is a pic of the engines installed the next day. To date, rerigged all cables, some new gauges, new throttles and shifters, throttle pod on the right side, engine compartment repainted with Awlgrip, complete rebuilds including pistons, rings, cams, heads, blower shop blowers and intercoolers and many other things that I lost count along the way.

Dean, I'll have to see how the job search is going at that time. Right now it seems to be a little slow finding one. So if you know of anything, please let me know.

Marc is a good business man!

I had some trouble with a trans once and he did right by me. I would recommend him to anyone.

Just ordered an XR upper from Marc
about 2 hours ago ( 3:45 his time)
( generally, a little late for shipping)

He offered to get it out yet today,
so I wasn't "down" this weekend

A lot of people, knowing that they already
got the order, aren't going to put any extra
effort in getting the product out........Not
these guys

Thanks Marc.

As long as I'm breaking and fixing stuff,
You'll be shipping stuff to the 515 area code

Yeah, when he sent me my trans one of his guys went to the airport with my stuff and sent it to me via. Delta. I had the trans within 4-5 hours.

Stopped by the airport after work, picked it up and was running the next day!
