Who, or what, is “Mad Max”?
The MAX is a steel 77’ x 22’ former tour boat that has become my man-cave. Superman has his fortress of solitude, batman has his Bat-Cave... Steve has Max the Man-Cave! The Max is our mobile supply boat and floating repair shop for the Highliner lodge.
“Mad Max” is
short for a new business we have started...full business
name: Mad Max Mobile Marine Mechanics!
We are proud to announce that we have been approved by Suzuki Marine as a new dealer, and approved repair center, for Suzuki outboards!
Master mechanic Chris Oschek will be on hand to keep your Suzuki engine up and running smoothly all summer long.
We will have new engines, spare parts, oil and accessories for Suzuki outboards. This will be a great help to anyone in the Pelican/Elfin Cove area who needs in-season parts and service. We will be re-powering all of our boats, as needed, with new Suzuki outboards.
If you are considering what brand of outboard engine to use in this remote area, I think that the brand with a dealership and repair center nearby trumps any other consideration. If you breakdown out here, you may lose the use of your boat for most of the season, waiting for the next ferry to transport your boat to Juneau, then getting “waiting listed” by the repair shop there... and finally waiting again for the ferry! This process can cost you thousands of dollars, even if your are covered by a warranty!
In contrast, with Mad Max you can leave your boat in the water. You can bring your boat to us, or we can bring the Max to you! Either way, you just pull along side of the Max and tie up and we have our shop just a few feet away from your boat and engines. No more wasted time (and money) running back and forth between the job and the shop! No floatplane trip to Juneau. No Ferry. No need for a trailer. IT’S THAT SIMPLE AND FAST. We will keep a good stock of parts and engines on hand. No Alaska Air Goldstreaks. No waiting. We don’t take days off. We are open 7 days a week. No weekend wait.
If you are in the charter business, or have an outboard motor powered boat that you keep in the Pelican/Elfin Cove area, please do yourself a favor and make you next outboard engine a Suzuki... that decision may save you thousands of dollars and keep you on the water while the fishing is good and there is money to be made!
