There is a big difference between an OUTBOARD REPAIR SPECIALIST and an OUTBOARD PATCH SPECIALIST (aka Shade Tree Marine Mechanic). One is trained in the industry and uses proper tools of the trade in his evaluation and diagnosis of engine running problems and the other is un-trained with a “box of used parts” in the back corner of his shop which he uses in his evaluation and diagnosis of engine running problems (this common technique is referred to as "parts swapping" which is done until a problem is resolved). At Meridian Outboard, all of our technicians are formally trained and required to attend annual on site factory training courses provided by our brands Yamaha, Mercury, Evinrude and Tohatsu. You can always count on the technicians at Meridian Outboard to provide accurate diagnostics and dependable service!
Meridian Outboard was established years ago as an alternative boat repair shop for boaters wanting straight forward answers with reasonable, affordable and dependable solutions to their boating problems. In early 2000, the owners of Meridian Outboard did extensive market research and found that most marine repair shops in the area were all about quickly and inaccurately diagnosing engine running problems, replacing parts and sending boats on there way with most of them returning a short period later due to poor service. This all changed in early 2000!
Meridian Outboard is all about properly diagnosing the cause of problems, determining a solid plan of action, discussing options with customers and then providing a repair that is accurate, solid and dependable. Our goal is to fix it right first visit.
Meridian Outboard is your source for quality boat repair, engine parts, engine maintenance items, boat accessories, service, warranty work, electronics installation and repair, engine rebuilds, lower unit rebuilds, new engine sales. Have questions or need guidance? Stop by or give us a call.

**YOUR ALTERNATIVE TO SHADE TREE MARINE MECHANICS (Per Wikipedia) A shade tree marine mechanic is a person who performs boat repairs with minimal equipment and supplies in an irregular setting, often a residential garage or driveway, sometimes by jerry rigging. A shade tree marine mechanic may identify as a retired or off-duty mechanic, a paraprofessional with limited or specialized skills, a self-employed individual, or a handyperson who enjoys working on boats in their spare time. Services performed by a shade tree mechanic may include basic maintenance, DIY upgrades, and other repairs.
