    I wanted to go, but I took my boat to Cope marine for a tune-up. Supposed to have it done in 3 days, they called today and told me it would be another week! :angry: Maybe I'll have it back by next weekend.

    Cope's service department is very, very poor. I was hoping it would have gotten fixed and taken care of nicely when they brought in new manager. Apparently, it is no better. A tune up should be a simple matter to get fixed and up and running.

    I think I am going to Baldwin Sat and Sun. I really want to jug fish Carlyle thoug... but don't think that will happen.

    Cope is not a place to go for anything IMO. There are plenty of smaller dealerships than Cope that can work on most makes. But...tis the season when everyone wants to get their boats going, so anything under a week is almost impossible.
