  1. Thanks to Alan at Southside marine for installing the Boatcatch we won at the Eden event last year, as usual Alan did a great job with all the modifications he had to make to the trailer and I wasn’t surprised at the job he had done...
  2. Just wanted to give a big thanks to Alan, I cannot highly enough recommend Alan to anybody needing anything done to their boats. Alan is professional, knowledgeable, and could give lessons on customer service. For as long as Alan is working on boats, I will be taking my boat to him.
  3. Found Alan to be very helpful in advising me about a lonestar electric winch install. He showed and explained how and why he would do the job as he had limited space to work with. The price quoted was very reasonable and the materials used and the completed job was faultless. Would recommend Alan's fantastic work to anyone ,
  4. Alan has been servicing and diagnosing our engine troubles for the last year and a bit, I would recommend him to anyone within a heartbeat. His way of working and professionalism in his work is some of the best i have seen, and a great bloke to boot. He went out of his way to help us with our engine issues and as it was terminal, suggested a course of action to get us through a few more months. We will be back for sure once the new motor is out of warranty!
  5. I have found Alan at Southside Marine Services to be very customer service focussed. He is without doubt extremely generous with his time, advice and has great attention to detail. I highly recommend Alan for all your boat servicing needs.
  6. Alan's attention to detail and willingness to go out of his way to diagnose and fix any problems is like nothing I've experienced in the marine industry. Highly recommended and very professional.
  7. Sound knowledge, attention to detail and quality customer service are key to what I have found through the work of Alan at Southside Marine Services. His knowledge and understanding has provided me with the comfort to discuss any issues and plans for the boat in the knowledge the advice provided will be well considered. I highly recommend Alan for your boat servicing needs.
  8. I first contacted Alan for a service on my Suzuki 140 four stroke. After a bit of a chat I liked what Alan had to say and decided to give him a go... To say he was very thorough would be an understatement. He not only serviced the outboard and did a great job but looked over the whole boat and trailer as well. At no time did I feel like I was being taken for a ride or mislead in any way. I was always kept informed of what was happening and there were no expensive little surprises at the end of the process. I've found Alan to be approachable, knowledgeable, professional, very easy to communicate with and not afraid to go above and beyond the call of duty! Alan has since been out to my house several times for some follow up repairs to my trailer for a very, very reasonable fee! A real pleasure to deal with and a breath of fresh air in the marine industry. I would highly recommend Alan to anyone looking for a dependable, honest and reliable marine mechanic. Trust me, you won't be disappointed!
  9. I used Alan for my yearly service on my 70HP Yamaha 2-stroke last year and again this year. Very satisfied with his thoroughness and his service of picking up and dropping off the boat. He also helped me out when I did a wheel bearing on the way back from the ramp earlier this year.
