Wanted to give a shoutout to Fred and the crew at Diamond Sports Marine in Yantis. They’ve been the only ones to work on my Ranger. They have always done a great job and in a timely manner. Saturday during the Berkley tournament I spun a hub (oddly enough after stopping to check on a boat that was flagging people down). Not knowing if I had spun a hub or blown a lower unit, I called Fred and he told what to do to get a quick diagnosis. He said he couldn’t be 100% sure but thought it was a hub issue and told me I if could get it over to him he could probably fix it quickly. My partner and I limped from Wolfe across the lake to Mustang Resort and got the old gal on the trailer. While my partner went to weigh a fish I went over to DSM. Fred had me pull around back and before I even got out of the truck they had confirmed the spun hub. Probably took less than 10 minutes and I was headed back to the ramp. These guys will continue to get my business. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

I drove the 3.5 hrs to fish Fork for the day not long ago. Some how along the way, I lost a complete hub, wheel, and tire. My Powerstroke never flinched. Thankfully, I have a tandem axle trailer. Fred was recommended from a friend and he treated me well. I'm very satisfied with the work.

Fred will forever have my business after the recent work he did to my Ranger.

Another local marina wanted to replace a laundry list of things to fix a issue I was having with my boat, after I asked why so many items are being changed when we don’t even know the roof cause of the problem is he answered with come pick your boat up I don’t even want to work on it.

Fred and the guys over there properly diagnosed it and replaced the 1 single part that we both were 90% certain the problem was and the boat has been performing great since!

Fred at Diamond is a good one! Good communicator and does customer service right. Would not hesitate to purchase another boat from these folks.

Yet, I spent 3k up there trying to get my trim problems fixed.
They were nice enough and gave me a break on labor but I still had a boat with an issue after 3k was spent.......
I like them but don't know that they will work on my boat again.
