Notes From The Skipper


Bundle Up for Winter Boating

Bundle Up for Winter Boating

Is winter boating a thing? Yes, though not so much in our part of the world. In the coldest months, we northerners catch most of our fish through holes drilled in thick lake ice. Winter offers great fishing opportunities and snow-kissed fun for the dedicated boater with access to open water - and who's not afraid of the cold.

Cold weather saps battery power. A battery loses 30 percent of its charge at freezing temperature (32F/0C). Keep your battery charged to avoid frustration wh...

What Our Customers Are Saying


Kudos for the above and beyond service on getting my control here on time. It was exactly what I needed, and saved a bundle too!

Jay B. of Tempe, AZ

I received the Seats the other day, (Fantastic) Exactly what I was looking for, style and color is spot on. Packaging and wrapping was excellent no damage to goods. Firstly I want to thank you for your excellent service you provided and prompted response on emails. Secondly some feedback on your web site, very informative and clear. Very Good. Thanks again.

Nick of California

After ordering and purchasing 10 Gebo portlights to be shipped to Gosport ,UK, would just like to thank you all for your great service, ease of transaction and good email updates via you and ups. The total amount including UK import and taxes came to $2054.. These same portlights purchased in the UK would have cost me $4002 plus shipping ! The portlights are superb quality and totally transform the look of my boat and best of all, no more leaks! Crazy that a product made in the EU can be bought much cheaper from the states?

Andy P.

A great company for boat parts. A friend recommended, they are a great company with great customer service and can be trusted.

Ron H. of Melrose Park, IL

Hi Great Lakes Skipper; Thank you. The piano hinges arrived yesterday afternoon and they are just what we need. Thanks so much for the great service too. Be assured that we will buy from you again!

Rick and Bonnie D. of Tennessee

I just received my order from your company and I'm extremely pleased with the quality and at such a great price !!! A local marine shop here in FLA wanted over $60 for the same item for only one (1) of the Nitro Live Well Mgt Systems, plus $90 per hour for the labor involved. Now I can go and update my Nitro 929 CDX and get both livewells up and running again myself. All I can say is thanks so much for offering such a fine quality product at such a great price. My feedback is: "Effortless transaction, great item offered, good price, super seller !!!"

Paul T. of Florida, USA

Hello! I just thought I would write and tell you that the boat upholstery that we ordered from your upholstery shop for our trawler was everything that we hoped for with respect to the color depiction on your website. Our cushions turned out beautifully, and we couldn't believe how fast we received your product. Thank you, once again, and we will be referring our boating friends to your website with great enthusiasm!

Bob and Arlene P. of Forida

I received my replacement order. The part arrived in excellent condition and I am very satisfied. When my first order arrived damaged I was skeptical about doing business with Great Lakes Skipper. I was very pleased with the way your company handled the return and promptly sent me the replacement. I am a happy customer and I will do business with you again. Thank you.

Paul B. of New Hampshire, USA

This is the first time I have ever felt even the desire to applaud a seller [on eBay].

Your company has gone above and beyond in helping me with providing me with a great product and service, and when there was a small defect in one marine temperature gauge from the package I got, you guys shipped me out another one 2 day priority shipping. I am taken aback by your generosity. I would have been perfectly satisfied with regular shipping as I know the engine isn’t overheating. Thank you so much for this gesture.

I will look at your guys store from now on for my marine needs if you have the parts I’m looking for.

I hope that your company stays in business for generations and that your business ethics remain the same. You have just earned my business and my referrals should I find anyone who is looking for any products you offer.

Thank you again.

David C. of Washington

Hi, I would just like to take the time to note the wonderful help and service of [employee name removed] from the shipping department in regards to my last order. I had an issue with an item I received and the issue was handled with professionalism, promptness, and courtesy. I just felt the need to make note of this service. It is becoming increasingly rare to find customer service at this level. Thanks!

Tytus of USA

Just wanted to let you know my husband loved the new gauges. I could never have figured out what he needed without your patient help! Be assured we will make your store our first stop for new parts!

Marie L. of Port Coquitlam, BC, Canada

I just bought one of your Sea Pro Fishing Rod Rocket Launcher Racks and I'm EXTREMELY happy with the entire transaction! Super Heavy Duty Quality and one of the BEST BARGAINS I have found on the internet! Easily worth 3 times what you could get for one of these. Anyone looking at one of these should grab it before they are gone! It shipped really fast and was well protected. I don't work for Great Lakes Skipper. I am just a really happy customer of theirs. Please post this testimonial for all to see. Thanks again. What a great deal!!!

Paul H. of New Hampshire

Skipper -- I just wanted to write you to say thanks for saving me a bunch of money! I bought the trolling motor from you guys for the first time. Well I shorted out the wiring on installation (I should have had my dealer install it). I was going to pay out all that money to ship it back, but you pointed out that the warranty card was still in the box. I contacted the manufacturer and they performed the repairs done at no charge. Heck, the dealer (who did the work) even installed the motor on the boat for no additional charge. I will certainly be buying all my boat parts there. Thanks!! Mick.

Mick D. of Sunny Florida

My replacement lights arrived safe and well yesterday, so a big 'thankyou' for your wonderful efforts. I cannot tell you how delighted I am with the quality of the items and most importantly, how swiftly and courteously our small problem was rectified. It is always a bit of a leap into the unknown buying items from overseas and my experience with Great Lakes Skipper is the best to date - your customer service is first class! You may be assured of my return business, and once again, thank you!

Marcus M. of Australia

Hello Great Lakes Skipper; I received my boat seats yesterday and I am very happy with your product. UPS did a good job of getting them to me overnight, just like you said. You (Daniel) and your knowledge played a big part in helping me choose the right seats for my boat. I will recommend Great Lake Skipper and your services to others. Thank you. L. Jared

L. J. of Greece

Hi there. The beige Bimini Top I ordered was delivered today. I am impressed with the quality. It is definitely not one of those cheap, flimsy ones sold at [big box marine store name removed]. It is A1 -- FIRST CLASS -- like it was described. And KUDOS on the packing by your shipping team. It was quite a task to unwrap and unpack the Bimini Top. Thank you very much! It was well worth the money!

Dave N. of Portland, ME

My name is Sharon and I recently ordered a Gekko Swim Platform Pad from you. I have a 2003 Gekko Revo 6.7i ski boat that I was having worked on getting serviced, new carpet, detailed, etc…and I needed to replace the swim platform pad. The Gekko 3 piece set fit my platform perfectly and my boat looks like it just left the show room floor! I am extremely pleased! The boat shop had no idea what they were going to use on my platform but I was able to do a quick Google search and found you and the Gekko pad. Thank you so much for the perfect pad and for the fast professional service and delivery. I will definitely recommend your company to others and plan to use you often in the future.

Sharon S. of United States

Never had such prompt service. I ordered my boat parts on Thursday, flew home Friday night, and the package was there when I got home!!

Warren H. of Ohio

Just wanted to let you know that the Livorsi gauges I got from you are working perfectly. I was concerned about spending as much as I did on a first order with some one I had never done business with, but you guys are great. Now I got my eye on a bass boat - I'll be back!

David S. of Hillsboro, OR

Thank you very much for sending me a replacement part. I wanted to let you and your management know that I think very highly of your customer service, which is knowledgeble, courteous, and fair-minded.
