|Fellow Boaters -
Welcome to our updated newsletter "The Boating Life" for all Hall Marine Customers and Future Customers. You may recognize us by a different name, see the letter from my Brother and I below for what's brought about the change.
After the letter, you can see what to expect in this edition as well as future editions of 'The Boating Life' newsletters.
Hall Marine... Looking Ahead...
The Next 40 Years
As our company approaches it's fourth decade in business, well into the second generation of ownership, as one of the leading marine dealership organizations in the nation, we are grateful to all of our loyal customers and our team. The six sales and service locations in Lake Wylie, Charleston, Columbia, Lake Norman, Savannah, Greenville and two marinas that comprise our organization have operated as "Sea Ray of ____________" for many years based on their perspective geographic location. Despite uncertainty in recent years, each of these dealerships have continued to grow and prosper. Sea Ray boats has been and will continue to be an integral and significant part of our organization and a proud partner with our company. They have many new and exciting, industry changing, models being introduced for 2013 including jet boats, outboard powered runabouts and cruisers, and several beautiful new yachts.
In our ongoing efforts to meet the needs of the boating public and specific needs of our customers and their varied boating lifestyles both inland and at the coast, we have, during recent years, increased our product offering to include Harris and Bennington Pontoons, Boston Whaler, Scout, Meridian , Ski Nautique and Bayliner. These brands compliment all of the great qualities of Sea Ray Boats and they fulfill several segments of the boating industry in which Sea Ray does not participate.
Therefore, we are excited to announce that beginning this Fall, 2012, all six dealership locations will be identified as Hall Marine. Our intent for this change is to create consistency and eliminate confusion as to the products that we represent and service. This change will also help to identify and define our organization as a regional company and it will clarify our company brand identity on the internet and other electronic media. Our values, philosophy, mission and the way we service and support our customers and the boating community will not change.
We along with our entire team invite you to embrace our new name, Hall Marine, as we look forward to the future and working with you in pursuit of your boating lifestyle.
With Sincere Appreciation,
Jeff and Rick Hall

|Sell Your Boat Quick... Call to Learn How
|We buy boats for cash within 3 days or offer a convenient brokerage service for those looking to get the most money in their pocket with virtually no work.
Don't waste your time emailing everyone who wants to know 'how many hours', waiting on the docks for buyers who don't show or messing with paperwork and hoping the cashier's check is good.
Give your Hall Marine Sales Person a call to learn how they can handle everything for you and sell your boat quicker and easier.
How To Video of the Month...
I talked to a boater they other day who said; "Tying a good knot is not about being easy to tie, its about being easy to un-tie" You know what, that sums it up pretty good.
Almost all boaters have come across a dock line or rope with a knot you just have to cut because it won't come undone. Check out this video for two of the most useful and easy to tie knots for the pleasure boater.

|Tech Time -
Is Winterization Time Is Getting Close Already?
Let's hope we don't see this kind
of freezing this winter. But,
don't take the chance by
skipping your winterization.
Call our service department to schedule your winterization today.
| Your local Hall Marine Dealership is the best place to take care of your service needs. With many dealers in these times changing, it's more important than ever now to have your boat serviced by someone you can trust.
We had several engines "bust" this year that were winterized by others who are no longer around, so don't let that happen to you.
For those of you in our Costal Locations, shorter lead times make this a great time to handle your 100 hour or annual service as well.
So, call your local service department to schedule your service today!
