    Picking up a new Yamaha VMax 250 to replace my Optimax 150 on our pontoon boat. Are there any riggers in Havasu that you all would recommend to do the Yamaha conversion? TIA

    I don’t know anybody that does Yamaha stuff in Havasu, anything I do with outboards I don’t use folks in Havasu, if it all possible I would call KYLE at wide open throttle Marine, it makes more sense to me to tow my boat to him versus getting stuff done out there for help.

    Kyle knows his stuff inside and out. Gets done right the first time.

    Fallon won’t do Yamaha. He recommended Cactus RV or The Outboard Doctor as the only certified places in town. Another would be Shimmer Boat Service, they typically have parts in stock.

    Been using Kyle and Cole since 2012 (I think that is the year they opened). Great guys, good service, don’t BS you and tell you the honest truth!
    Well worth my time to trailer boat home to have them work on it.

    Plus - new shop that Kyle purchased is awesome!

    Good luck getting an appointment. I was his customer when he just left Lakeland, now he has become Kustom like the rest of the shops and too busy for small peeps. Just my experience.
