Mark, the chief mechanic from Westside had been doing the maintenance and repair on our 1999 27’ Skagit Orca for over 7 years. When I decided to purchased a small, lighter more trailerable aluminum boat my first choice was to buy a boat from a dealer that I had the greatest confidence in. I have found over the years that having a competent, knowledgeable maintenance dealer is the most important consideration when owning a boat. I purchase a Hewescraft Ocean Pro 22 from Westside Marine in late 2006 after comparing several different aluminum boats and dealer offerings. Randy, the owner of Westside, was willing to work with me and Hewescraft to meet all of my unique custom requirements, while at the same time deliver a boat at a cost that other dealers were not willing to meet. Most other dealers said “here is what we have, take it as is”. After 4+ years and over 750 hours on my boat, I couldn’t be more satisfied with the cost and service I have received from Westside since purchasing the Hewescraft.
