I had my boat stored at a yard in Michigan City Indiana. They were scheduled to move my boat from Michigan City to Saugatuck Michigan on a Wednesday. They called wednesday morning to say that not only were they not able to ship my boat, but that they hadnt even started the engine tune up and other engine projects. I asked them to get the engine ready and I would take care of the shipping. Well, the stars were working in my favor. I went online. Did a search for boat shippers, quickly found uship, registered, and within 20 minutes of my posting, Mark Rinker, from mremarine had replied to my posting with a fair bid that happened to be the same amount I was going to pay the previous person. This was wednesday during the day and by wednesday night I had an arrangement with Mark to have my boat picked up and delivered on Friday of the same week. Yes, maybe I was lucky, but I also try to believe that there are still good people and good businesses out there. MREMARINE is one such service. They renewed my faith in people in the boat service industry. Uship was so easy to use and the emails come right to you and then you just click on the link. That made it so easy to communicate back and forth.
