I have noticed that West Boats, Xpress dealer, has been closed for some time now.
Went by today ,gates out front still locked, no one at home.
There are some boats in back in for repair.
Anyone have a clue what has happened.?

Beth and Butch are two of the nicest people to do business with. Prayers for their situation.

Last time I talked to Butch, not sure Beth was in the picture.
And Butch has been in poor health for a while.
No note on the gate, old Texas Outdoors under the gate, dated November.
I bought my boat there, too.

Hope all is well.

I think Butch was diagnosed with cancer and is just living life the best he can now. Prayers said. This is what I have heard and read on the TFF.

Set the hook! It's a monster!

They are just down the road from my folks house. Noticed that a couple weeks ago. Thought they should be opened. Always liked to stop buy. They are really good folks. Hope all is well.

I have heard that West Boats in Mequite is closed..that is where I boat my boat and usually had them work on it....any suggestions on where to take my boat to get my Yamaha motor worked on? Also, anyplace closer to Hurst/Euless/Bedford than Mesquite is a big bonus. thanks

Does anyone have any details about the passing of Butch. He was a high school friend of mine.

Been a long time since being in the RV/boat business was a good idea. Sad to hear.
