Service & Repair

Boats are great when they are on the water; sitting on land in need of repairs, not so much.

The first-rate service department at SouthWinds Marina offers a full range of services to make sure your boat spends more time on the water than in the shop.

Whether new or used, if your boat needs regular maintenance or major repairs, our team of highly qualified, experienced and certified marine technicians is available year-round to meet all your mechanical needs. The technicians at SouthWinds Marina understand you would much rather be boating so they will do all they can to get you back on the water as soon as possible.

Our chief mechanic, Kelly Brewster, is Mercury certified and stays up-to-date on the latest marine technology. Kelly also is trained on Mercury Marine’s MercNet diagnostic system, which allows him to plug his computer into a port on a Mercury motor and quickly diagnose the problem.

Kelly Brewster is the chief mechanic at SouthWinds Marina.

In addition to being well-versed in the Mercury analytics computer, Kelly also has the good ol’ farm boy sense to be able to work on older two-stroke engines. From basic oil changes to specific propellers and powerheads, Kelly and his team can find a solution to your engine’s issues.
