Typical Hinckley Repairs

Hinckley, Legacy and other Picnic Boat Repairs

We are well known for our routine maintenance and repairs to all sorts of picnic boats including Hinckley, Legacy and others. Some owners feel they need to go to a Hinckley yard to get proper service but that is like using a car dealer for maintenance on your car. Our technique is to follow the manual closely and transend recommendations where necessary. These specific brands and others all have inherent problems from time to time as well as the manufacturer’s required maintainence requirements.

We have seen many jet drives where the intake well is painted with copper paint or not painted at all in which case it was filled with barnacles. We remove the strainer and apply non-metallic paint.
