Summer is too short to be spent dealing with boat troubles.

"It's amazing today how hard it is to get parts," said Duane Hagadone, a lifelong Lake Coeur d'Alene boating enthusiast. "When your boat breaks down in the middle of July, you don't want to wait a month to get parts."

The service center will ensure that even when a boat is acting up, repairs won't eat up the whole summer/Devin Heilman, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
