The Boating Life - December 2012


Fellow Boaters -

Well, the Holidays have begun. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and are getting prepared for a fantastic Christmas with your family and friends.

As the weather gets colder, we don't get out on the water as much so you'll want to check out the end of this months newsletter where I have a special surprise for you. And, an announcement we are very excited to make.

Anyway, this month, here's what we have for you:

  • How you can easily make your boat stand out at the marina at night.


  • Why adding fuel treatment is important


  • Dogs on the Water Photo Contest


  • And of course, we'll start with a little boating humor...

A Little Boating Fun

Skipper's Corner -
Cool Under Water Light for Your Boat

If you do any boating at night or even in the evening, you're going to love this. OceanLED has come out with some very cool underwater LED lights. They are super bright, require a very small access point to install and look amazing at night.

Check out just a few of the installs other boaters have completed recently.

These OceanLED lights can be installed on almost any boat from a small bow rider or deck boat to the largest of SunDancers... and will turn heads on your dock at night.

Call your local Hall Marine Service Department to get an estimate on adding these underwater lights.

Sell Your Boat Quick & EZ, 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 time emailing everyone who wants to know "How many hours", waiting on the docks for buyers who don't show up 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.


Service Tip of the Month
Three Types of Fuel Treatment


It's not only time to winterize and think about freeze damage but also time to consider doing a little extra to protect the fuel in your tank.

Mercury offers 3 types of fuel treatment for your fuel treatment needs.

3. Quickstor Fuel Stabilizer - Helps Fuel from Breaking Down and Oxidizing Over Time. Keeps Fuel Fresh for Over a Year.

2. Quickleen Fuel System Cleaner - Quickly Removes Carbon Deposits from Carburetors and Injectors, Intake Valves & Extends the Life of Spark-Plugs.

1. Quickare Fuel Treatment - Helps Control Common Fuel Problems Such as Corrosion, Moisture and Varnish Build Up as Well as Phase Separation Associated with Ethanol Blends.

Stop in your local Hall Marine location to pick up your fuel treatment or ask them to complete your full winterization service if you haven't already.
More Christmas Gifts for Boaters
Last month, I shared a few water toys that would make fantastic Christmas gifts for the Boaters on your list. This month, I have three more ideas they may love.

1. A New Grill for Your Boat or Pontoon

These Magma Marine Grills have multiple mounts to attach to almost any boat or pontoon.

2. Wake Board or InnerTube

For the water sports lover in your life, not much beats a new wake board, knee board or InnerTube under the tree.

3. New Boat

Call Your Hall Marine Sales Associate to find out if Santa Will Bring YOU a New Boat this Christmas.

Meet Hall Marine Team Member -
Mike Stephens at Hall Marine Lake Wylie
We will feature one of the 80 or so Team Members in this section each month so you can get to know the folks behind the scence who you may not get a chance to meet in person.

Mike after a day of lake calls doing winterization for
boaters on Lake Wylie.

The first month, we have Mike Stephens, a Certified Mercury and MerCruiser Tech who's been with Hall Marine Lake Wylie for about two years.

Mike recently came in 1st place at the "King of the Lake" bass fishing tournament on Lake Wylie winning a nice $5,000 cash prize.

Mike grew up fishing Lake Wylie with his Dad and Grandpa. So, when not working on boats in the service department, he is generally out traking the fish on Lake Wylie or Lake Norman.

As we close out 2012, I'd like to thank our amazing clients in all six of our locations. In addition to having a very successful season of delivering hundreds of new and used boats, pontoons and yachts, we are also very proud to have been awarded the Boating Industry Top 100 Dealer Award for the 7th year in a row.

This award is not possible without all of you who've rated our customer service online and on manufacture surveys. It's an honor to be one of the few dealers in the world to be 7-Time winners!

At the Black Tie Awards Ceremony held on November 14th at the MDE Awards Banquet. We are so proud and grateful for the recognition of being one of the best!

As I mentioned, we have a little something special for you. You probably haven't been on the water as much recently, so here are a few pictures to hold you over until the weather starts warming up!

As always, if we can be of service to make your boating lifestyle more enjoyable, give us a call.  Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
