Are Martin Marine and Martin Offshore two different companies ? In different locations ?
Or different operations within the same company ?
and
Does Marine Management have a web site ?

thanks all,
ed

Martin Marine is Ralph & Glen Martin, Scott Smith, Bob Carlson, Craig Barrie and Bill. They sell boats, brokerage and new..

Martin Offshore is Tres Martin. Setup, service, riggin, throttling and boat school. I probably left out a lot of stuff.

I believe they are different companies. Ralph is Tres and Glen's father. Ralph was the first person to sell boats for Don A and Reggie F. Ralph also ran Evergaldes Marina at one time and sold a lot of the big Apaches.

I will have to add Mercury Marine and Gates Marina (under new management). Mike Anthony from Mercury and Jimmy from Gates Marina took care of our problem on our 38' Scarab 500 hp. We had low water pressure. They sent Jimmy to measure the X dimension and found it high and then sent Mike Anthony down to assess the problem.

Mercury decided that the water pickup was insufficient and had Gates install low water pickups to correct the problem. Problem was fixed with no money out of our pocket.

Prior to that, we had one of our mid sections blow out on a regular basis. By the 3rd time, Mercury went out of their way to ensure this would never happen again.

This happened in 1998 and we logged over 276 hours trouble free. Mercury stepped up to the plate and took care of the problem allowing Gates to handle the work.

My opinion - Mercury is the way to go.

OSO Steve is second.

If you guys frequent the Tech Forum, you would know of a member who has "given" more free camshaft advice than anyone else on this forum.
Bob Madara, aka. RMbuilder, has been more helpful than you can imagine.
He knows camshaft technology and how it is applied to a marine application.
