Cunninghams Marine, Clontarf.
« on: Sat 11 May 08:21 2019 »
I found out yesterday after driving there to have my Mercury looked at after what seemed to be a tuning problem only to find a notice to say they have shut up shop. I wish them well. It is never good to have businesses close no matter how it effects you.

I wasn't too sad when the original Cunninghams shut down years ago.
First 3 services on a new boat and motor I bought from them resulted in 3 return trips.
Missing nuts and bolts twice, unchanged filters and things not put back together properly. And expensive.
Son apparantly took it over and moved but I never went back.

Well I had a bad experience also and just as well my motor was not in there when they closed. Havlng gone all electric I built a nice mobile stand for my motor and tank and it needed a carby clean and tune up with fresh fuel so I could run it without the boat and keep it healthy. When I got it back I couldn't start it and the area around the prop nut looked different. So t hat is when I took it back and found them closed. It wasn't until I had done some searching on the net that I found Brisbane Marine . So back I went for another drive and found a welcoming service dept. who are flxing my motor I hope. It looks like there is something missing in the prop area . And Brisbane Marine is in Duffield Road.

Having a motor in for service is one thing. Wonder if anyone had a deposit down on a new boat?
When my wife calls, tell her I'm in "Ah Me Ting".

 I have learned a bit late and a costly lesson for me. Could have been worse.

    I have just spoken to Cunningham's  Marine on the phone and they are trading again. ?????
    And they fully refunded to me the cost of the original service that went wrong.
    THANKS FELLAS.

    they are now back in full business with lots of new boats and motors and they refunded me the cost of my service that went wrong. Thank you fellas and good luck.
