I searched the internet for a pontoon boat within 1,000 miles of West Virginia and found hundreds that match what I was looking for. I contacted about 20 of these dealers who all seemed to be giving me a fair deal. None were better than Lou Wendell Marine in Saint Albans, WV. I had the pleasure of dealing with Lou Wendell directly who truly cared about putting me in one of his boats, and not just making a buck off me. In fact, buying now saved me thousands. Go see Lou today!

Went by there to look at a used fiberglass boat. Met with Lou himself who took the time with us to explain everything about the used boat. My wife really wanted a pontoon so she started looking at those. Again, Lou took the time to explain everything about them. We were never pressured to buy either, but we ended up getting a new pontoon boat. Lou and Tom were both great to work with and it couldn’t have been a better experience.
