        silver streak

        I do not have a bout built by them, but I have had extensive work done to my boat by them and they did a good job at a fair price. I believe there boats are top quality..

          My boat is glass, but I have a topper done by them. They don't mess around, it's good quality in everything they do.

            I had them make some seats for me for a previous river boat. There quality is first rate.

                Yeah, that is what I am learning... Woolys seem to be the way to go.. Resale, customer service, and performance seem to be all top notch.

                  Ben at Silver Streak is generous with his time answering questions about river boats. He once gave me a tour of his V-8 powered hovercraft he kept in his shop. Ben even started it and described how it operated. I met a fellow named Andy who lived five years in the bush and needed a boat for daily summer transportation. He was very knowledgeable about river boating. When he decided to downscale from a big inboard jet boat, he chose an 18 foot Rivermaster. Andy was very pleased with how well it worked for him. I have always heard that Silver Streak boats are sturdy (and so a bit heavier than competing boats of the same length). I think that Silver Streak is an authorized repair shop for warranty work on Wooldridge boats. Ben has a reputation for trustworthiness.

                    customer service

                    The owner there (not sure of his name) treated me great. All I was looking for were the rocket launcher rod holders. He took the time to show me how they made them and made arrangements to ship them to me when they were done. Didn't take long and was less expensive than I thought. I'm glad he waited on me, the girl up front was more interested in doing her nails.

                      Thats one thing you've got to admit is cool, having the "factory" warranty right here in your own backyard. I've also got to second that I've known Ben and his standards for quality for decades now, he's helped me out on numerous occasions like I'm sure he's helped tons of others.

                          I have owned a Silver Streak for over 10 years first rate boat, the thing you need to ck. on is how many of the wooldridge boats Ben and his employes repair each year as he is the warranty repair station, I have spent some time with Wooldridge boats in very rough waters and the design of the hull is such it spends more time sucking air them moving forward not so with the Silver Streak.

                            Ben put the new bottom on my sea ark. His work is great. One thing I like about his shop it's no bull**** shop he will only do it correctly or you can take somewhere else.

                            Second Ben has fixed every make of boat. Almost i bet. You have question about quality of boat you thinking of buying hell will tell what break. Stop by look at his yard there all kinds of different boats getting welding done.
                            Do I give my friends advice? Jesus, no. They wouldn't take advice from me. Nobody should take advice from me. I haven't got a clue about anything..

                              To each his own because if one boat worked for us all there would only be one boat manufacturer. It is hard to take the number of wooldridges in the shop as a sign of them breaking more than the rest considering about 1/2 of all the boats I see on the river are wooldridge boats.
