Special Thanks to Lionel Dowling previous owner of Mid City Marine who now is manager of the Travis Boating Center on 10567 W. Airline Hwy. St. Rose, LA 70087 (504) 441-5718 He took time out of his busy schedule and drove me to Baton Rouge to look at a new Fishmaster boat to check it out and bring it back to his place on Airline Hwy to install a new 2005 Suzuki 250hp And he had the new motor shipped in. Lionel Dowling made it possible for me to keep all of my charter on schedule he even had the boat ready a day early so I could break in the new motor!!! I have bought motors in the past from Lionel when he had Mid City Marine and was always happy with dealing with him. He stuck to his word when he said he would have the boat ready he took the extra steps to get me back on the Water fast!!!
Thanks a lot!!!
