Wondering what Seattle Boatnuts is all about?


What is Seattle Boatnuts?

Seattle Boatnuts is an extensive service listing, with ratings and reviews, for local boat owners like you! Our goal is to help you find the right businesses for repairs and upgrades. You can also help your fellow boaters by reviewing services you’ve used so they can make informed choices. Best of all, this is a free service for boaters and businesses in the Puget Sound area.


Why did I create Seattle Boatnuts?

I started Seattle Boatnuts because there have been times when I needed a particular service but didn’t know who to use. There were even times when I needed something custom and wasn’t even sure where to begin my search. I’m sure other boaters have gone through this as well and I decided to create a place where all the local businesses were listed, categorized and searchable to make it easy to find options when we have new problems to fix or just want to try someone new for the next upgrade.


Why do I feel it’s important to include ratings and reviews?

I’ve worked with many businesses that have been great but I’ve also worked with a couple that were not so great. There was even one that was so horrible that it’s partially responsible for the creation of Seattle Boatnuts because I wanted to warn other boaters by sharing my bad experience. We’re all used to reading reviews before we buy products on sites like Amazon, Defender and West Marine so I figured I could provide the same type of community driven feedback on Seattle Boatnuts. My hope is that the ratings and reviews will help each boater make the best choice for their needs and their boat.


How can boat owners help?

I hope you’ll support my efforts by visiting the site when you need repairs and upgrades and then adding a review for the business you chose.  You can also browse the site and search for businesses you’ve used in the past and add reviews for them as well.  Each review you add helps other boaters! Please tell your friends about Seattle Boatnuts and visit our Facebook page by clicking here.


How can business owners help?

If you’re the owner of a boating related service business in the Puget Sound area and your business is not already added, you can add it yourself by clicking here or simply email me the name and web site and I’ll be happy to add it for you.  If your business has already been added, you can click the “Claim Listing” button on your listing’s page which will make you the owner.  As the listing owner, you can edit your information and photos. Please email me if you have any questions or want to work on a special promotion.


Anything else?

I hope this site is helpful when your boat is in need of repairs and upgrades. If you have ideas, suggestions or any other feedback, please contact me–I’d love to hear from my fellow boatnuts!

Thank you for your support and happy boating!

    Thanks for adding me, Brian.

    I need to take my boat in for repair… 2006 Starcraft C-Star 1800 I/O. Needs a new starter. Also will need gas drained and new impeller. I had a guy up here in Bothell who would come out to the boat. He’s gone AWOL. So I’m looking for an honest and reliable repair shop that isn’t pricey.

    I’ve talked to Mobile Marine Services, Seattle Water Sports, Lynnwood Marine, Yarrow Bay, and North Lake Marina and have decided not to use them for various reasons.

    I’m considering Blue Ridge Marine in Marysville or 3 Rivers in Woodinville for repair or O’Ryan Marine in Redmond. Wondering if you know of their work, or know a shop with a good reputation. Most shops don’t seem to have a good one.

    I’m up in the Brier area, so north is good… Everett, too.
