When Scott Tucker decided to go out on his own and form his own boat maintenance company, he only had a small house with attached garage where he could pull small boats in under cover. If he wanted to work on larger boats, he had to either park them outside, or go to where they were in dry dock, or tied up to the dock. What seemed like a disadvantage turned out to be a good thing, because many folks were having a hard time finding someone who would come out and work on their boats on site. Soon Scott established a reputation for excellent service, fair prices, and prompt response, traveling the Emerald Coast from Gulf Breeze to Panama City to meet customer needs. From these early beginnings, American Mobile Marine Service & Repair LLC has grown to become a major boat repair facility in the Fort Walton Beach/Destin area. Currently, the shop at 920 Central Avenue has two large indoor bays as well as ample outdoor secure storage area for working on customer boats. This full-service repair facility can handle all major boat brands, whether they involve inboard, inboard/outdrive, or outboard engine configurations. The shop can repair and tune both 2-cycle as well as all 4-cycle and diesel engines. Having started as an on-site repair service, American Mobile Marine, as the name implies, still makes service calls to work on boats on-site. Service tech Mark Fought is typical of shop staff, who have over 50 years combined experience. They are equipped to handle all levels of repair, from preventive maintenance and annual servicing to major electrical, mechanical, and hydraulic overhaul. The shop has the latest in computer diagnostics to troubleshoot systems and make necessary repairs without wasted labor hours.
Heres what a satisfied customer said about American Mobile Marine in January 2012:
I have 17 years of boating experience, and I can say without a doubt Scott Tucker is absolutely the best marine mechanic I’ve dealt with. He treats me fairly on price and gets the job done right. I can confidently get my boat back ready to go to the water, knowing I can enjoy it without more hassles. I’ve had Scott Tucker evaluate my all original 1988 Sea Ray Cuddy Cabin runabout for needed repair/maintenance and he recommends a must do list and a nice to do list. He recommends what is best for my pocketbook without nickel and diming me to death like other mechanics have done in the past…
