Taylor, Michigan 48180
I recently purchased a Lund Alaskan boat, trailer, two
Mercury outboard engines and
numerous accessories from Angler's Marine. I feel compelled to tell you about
experience I had dealing with your company and, specifically, Mr. Tom Ledingham.
I dealt direcly with Mr. Ledingham through every stage of
the purchase, from early
discussions about the boat to the details on the installation of custom
accessories': This process
took several months and during each stage of the purchase I was pleased by the
service provided by Tom.
Tom Ledingham posseses an encyclopedic knowledge of the
products he sells. He
impressed me with his fishing and boating experience. His insights helped me
equip my boat with
useful accessories that I am convinced will provide me with many years of
boating satisfaction. A
few examples of the high quality accessories he recommended were a Lowrance, HDS-10
fishfinder / chartplotter with Ram mount, Traxstech mounts and a Twist Step
Since I plan to take my boat to remote places such as Lake
Superior's Isle Royale National
Park, I wanted redundancy in the boat's major systems. Tom installed dual
starting batteries with
a battery switch. He also adapted the main engine fuel line to connect
auxiliary gasoline tanks,
thus making it possible to travel long distances without refueling stops. Tom also installed special
twelve-volt outlets in the bow and stern of the boat to plug in a spotlight,
recharge a cell phone or
run other twelve-volt accessories.
Before purchasing the Lund Alaskan, I was acquainted only
with smaller fishing boats with
modest-sized outboard engines. The education I received from Tom about starting
in the new Mercury outboards, hooking-up and trailering the boat, launching and
bringing the boat on plane, using the fishfinder / chartplotter, using lines,
etc. prepared me to use
the new Alaskan with greater confidence and competence.
I must comment on the personal qualities of Tom Ledingham.
From the beginning of our
business acquaintance he has been a consummate gentleman, polite and helpful in
He followed-up on the many questions I had that might have frustrated a lesser
Ledingham answered all my inquiries including telephone calls and e-mail
messages. The only
thing I could possibly fault him on is that he was frequently so busy
multi-tasking with numerous
customers and staff that I
had to wait. This, of course, was excusable considering how busy he
was, Despite often being pulled in several directions, Tom never
rushed me and always found
time to give me his full attention and answer my questions in detail. Tom possesses outstanding
patience and excellent manners; it was a pleasure dealing with him.
You can be certain I will continue to bring my boating
business to Angler's Marine and I will
strongly endorse your business to others.

RE: 2013 1900 Lund Tyee Boat
I would like to advise you of the excellent services
received from Anglers Marine, 11643 S. Telegraph Road, Taylor, MI
. 48180 from Tom Ledingham and Doug Reimel both prior to my
purchase and after the sale of the boat. Priorto my
purchase and much online searching of informatlon on boats, I went to Anglers
Marine and met with Tom Ledingham to
discuss my needs and review Lund boat choices. I spent several hours reviewing
my needs, and what I planned to do
with the boat.
I went back to Anglers Marine and spent a full day with a
list of questions I had about the boat, trailer, and motor
options. I was provided detailed information on all my questions. After all the
information and further reviews online, I
decided to purchase a 2013 Lund 1900 Tyee in stock at Anglers Marine.
I made a down payment and completed a loan request. Tom Ledingham followed
through with finding a finance
institution that met the amount of the payment I needed to purchase the boat. I went down to the
store several times
to add additional equipment. I was provided with options that met my budget and
Doug Reimel outfitted the boat with all the equipment I had
purchased. The installation of the options was very
professional and neat appearing. I reviewed all the components with Tom and
When I picked up the boat Tom Ledingham provided a thorough
orientation of the boat and equipment.
I had to return after the boat purchase for some additional
orientation and placing the registration numbers and plates
on the boat and trailer. I was provided the same excellent service and answers
to my questions as before the purchase.
I was impressed with the after purchase service and support. I was encouraged
to contact the shop for any further
I hope you will acknowledge the fine service of Tom and
Doug at this Lund dealership.
