I'm a newcomer to power boating and just purchased an older boat with a Mercruiser Alpha One Gen One sterndrive. I like to do my own maintenance and, even though my visits surely cost him money, Walt has gone out of his way to help me find what I need. His encyclopedic knowledge of Mercruisers matches nicely with my beginner's understanding of boat motors and outdrives. Better yet, he's had the parts I came looking for in stock and at good prices.

Ive been in the washougal area for 20 yrs and have used Walt {the owner} and the guys there a couple times and I had nowhere near the bad service on these reviews. First of all, a boat, is a hole in the water to pour money in, and if you could do the work, do it, otherwise pay up. Walt took in a beastly 26ft old searay i bought and tried to fix and was very fair fixing what i tried to fix and screwed up on.  And on a different boat replaced a lower unit i located a submerged tree with and it was fair as well.  The only semi negative i can share is i just got another boat recently and he declined to troubleshoot it due to its age and thats because lol. I ended up getting the boat fixed but it was a stupid buy in hindsight. BTW, his wife Marianne in acctng,  is a sweetheart as well, and I believe a daughter helped me with payment etc, also pleasant.

I had some faulty work done by another mechanic on a 1 year old boat. Walt went through the engines with every detail and repaired the faulty work. Through this frustrating process Walt showed me he is a man of character with excellent morals, ethics , and values. As we all know owning a boat can be frustrating with expenses and problems but I have found Walt to be someone I can trust with working on my boat. Thank you Walt and your team for your exceptional care and getting me back out on the water.

Riverside Marine is an amazing shop. First class work! I hit a sand bar real hard with my boat and did quite a bit of damage to my running gear. My prop, shaft, rudder, and strut were all damaged. They repaired my boat in a very timely manner and kept me in the loop through the whole process. I was very surprised how smooth my boat ran when I got it back out on the water. Walt and the technicians did an awesome job! I highly recommend taking your boat to them.

I have been a customer since 1999 and I have been very happy with the work their shop has performed for me on my 26' Sea Ray. Walt and Mariann have gone the extra mile to take care of my boating needs.

2001 Supra Launch SSV

June 25, 2013 by Anonymous on Riverside Marine Services

Riverside Marine did an awesome job repairing my Supra Launch SSV. I had ran it over a marina barrier log and totally messed up the underside of my boat. I didn’t know that it was bad until I took it into them to have the oil changed and winterized. After complete/routine inspection, the mechanics at Riverside noticed a bent drive shaft, bent rudder, cracked fiberglass, and a bent prop. After continuous contact between us, the boat is repaired and running like a champ. I could not believe the difference when I got it back! My boat has never ran and steered so smooth. I take it there every year for routine maintenance and have never been disappointed. The work and service from Riverside Marine is top notch.

Riverside Marine to the rescue! My trim pump failed on me, and I needed the boat the next week for my kid’s birthday party. Walt ordered me one and got it replaced so we could use the boat for the weekend. Its nice to work with a family owned shop. They care and go above and beyond to help. Thanks Riverside Marine!

I had another shop repair my boat from when I hit a dead head which ripped my whole running gear off my boat and messed up the bottom. The bottom of the boat was repaired and all new running gear was installed. My boat never felt the same after the repair and I had issues with my wake washing when I went wakeboarding. I know Kyle at Riverside, so I took the boat there to have them check it out. They found the repair was done completely wrong and the bottom of the boat was shaped incorrectly. They diagnosed the issue and worked with my insurance to make sure my boat repaired correctly. They had the bottom re shaped properly and installed everything correctly. My boat felt brand new again and ran perfect. I was very happy I took my boat to Riverside. I should have gone there in the first place!
