Johnnys Marine Sales And Service - Dishonest Mechanic Johnny Murray

Do not give Johnny's Marine Sales and Service a deposit to repair your boat!A reputable company will not ask for a deposit.

I took my boat in for a new motor and he kept trying to sell me a rebuilt motor. At the least, I would have considered a new long block from the factory. after many excuses and several months of why he couldnt get to my boat ( he was not authorized by Mercruiser) he showed me a rusty block that came out of a boat that was under water and told me he was going to rebuild my engine with it. I said absolutely not!

its not what I wanted. I asked him to refund my money and I would take it somewhere else to get the work done, keep in mind he had my boat for six months when he told me originally that I could have it back in 2 weeks. He refused to give me my money back. and I had to call the police to get my boat back.

My attorney tried to reason with him.

he only offered a fraction of the 4,000.00 deposit that I gave him.I will be seeking a full refund plus court cost and damages in court.

You guys did not know that he scours old boatyards and old forgotten boats for parts? Johnny is a leprechaun of sorts. He turns junk into gold-cash that is. Well known for the Johnny engine in these here parts. A grinder, some paint thinner, a sandblaster, and-presto. Perhaps a crankshaft or head or two but otherwise after the krylon she's NEW. Just drive or sail away without asking any (or two many) questions and she runs for awhile. Patchwork and bandaids are his tools of the trade. And a six pack of beer and he gets references-from his pals. Smart huh?
That's Johnny Murray's Marine legacy.

His marine engines are out of old cars and he sandblasts and paints them. He has no mercruiser account. There is no OEM warranty at Johnny's Marine in Charleston. Only lies. Like others are writing I too found out the hard way. Won't be dealing with crooked Johnny Murray any longer. He should be in jail.

Flim Flam Johnny. Beware of Mr. Murray. He is a fast talking *** artist that talks pitifully about being down on his luck. There are reasons for this.
Buyer beware when Flim Flam Johnny is there.

Not surprised. He seemed like a reputable guy when I did business with him, that is until I caught him. He sold me a boat with a "factory reman long block" which when I had a problem and asked where he purchasedfor warranty issues, he began back-peddling and claiming he would give me a warranty himself. He had misrepresented the engine and it was clearly one he had rebuilt and repainted. Exactly how far he rebuilt it I cannot say. He could not produce receipts. I strongly believe he only freshened up an older engine. He is a fraud. Do business with him at your own peril.
