“Being new to Ft Myers, I wasn’t sure about the type of boat that I needed for the unique challenges of oysters bars and shallow flats in the Matlacha/Pine Island area. Ronnie Hamilton worked with me over a 4 month period and was never pushy. He provided expert advice and eventually I purchased a Tidewater 2100 Bay. The boat was outstanding and we were amazed at how shallow she would run and the price was immensely less than a true flats boat. Even when I lost my job and had to sell my boat, Ronnie and his team worked with the seller in New Orleans, LA to provide him the confidence to purchase the boat without the additional cost of a survey. By the way the new seller is love with the boat. Now that I am back on my feet, I will purchase my next boat from Ronnie. In these days of excessive hype and promises, you can trust Ronnie and the team at San Carlos Marine. Ben”

“I bought the 180CC from Ronnie Hamilton and the experience could not have been better. There was no pressure placed on me in anyway and he was just a wonderful person to deal with. I looked at several different dealers looking for this partuclar boat and I found none to be as helpfull as San Carlos Marine and Ronnie Hamilton.”

“I have been doing business with San Carlos Marine for over twenty-five years and there is a reason for that. When I buy a new boat it is rigged out per my instructions without any miscues or missed “items”. The rigging is neat with special attention to wiring and salt water intrusion. Sandy is great in the service and parts department. She is very knowledgable and will bend over backwards to accommodate you.She is a master concerning warranty claims and as a customer she is your advocate. I can’t say enough about the mechanics.I haven’t had many on the water problems but inevitably they will occur. I know of no other marina that will try to “walk you through” a temporary fix while on the water. Once at the marina either Mike,Sean or John will diagnose your problem and have you back on the water ASAP. Of course a good organization starts at the top.Scott, as owner, is responsible for the success of San Calros Marine. A good measure of success is how long your employees have been with you. Most of Scott’s employees have been with him for over twenty years. Another measure is repeat business. I personally know of countless people who have used San Carlos and they continue to be return customers. I think the main attributes of Scott and San Carlos are being fair and honest. I know problems arise with boats,motors,trailers and equipment but if you are dealing with an honest person you will have a good outcome. ”
