     IVSS MARINE FEEDBACK SENT BY CUSTOMERS


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

23rd June 2013 Mr James Baker,  Dover

Having previously had outdrive works completed by another company and a completely unprofessional and shoddy job was "completed" I was highly recommended Wayne at ivss as a good efficient and professional choice to get my boat back on the water. On contacting Ivss they promptly visited me at the marina where they diagnosed the problem almost instantly. From then the drive was removed and delivered to the Ivss workshop where by Wayne showed me and confirmed his diagnosis. From then We was in regular contact being updated with the ongoing progress . When the drive was completed and arrived back at my boat I was pleasantly surprised by the level of professionalism. Not only was the work to my out drive outstanding, it was well beyond what i had expected. They then took the time to once again check that there was no other issues with the engine alignment and or anything else that could cause issues or re create my out drives original problem. The drive was fitted and upon return to the water was promptly tested. Ivss have restored my faith in marine engineers and I believe that as a company they have really exceeded there duty of care and support to there customer. I would highly recommend Ivss and I will be returning to Ivss in the future. Once again. Thanks guys for getting my boat back on the water. Top marks All I need now is the weather

Having decided to have my 290dp outdrives refurbished during a winter refit I contacted Wayne at IVSS. He was very very helpful . I was given various options and decided to have the full strip down ,service and repaint. On collection they looked very smart indeed. It was a shame to anti-foul paint them. The cost was very reasonable and the service 1st class.The boat is now berthed on the west coast of Scotland giving good service, visiting the lochs and islands. Once again I would like to thank Wayne for his help. Peter Hodgson,Doncaster,S.Yorks.

This is the second occasion I have used IVSS Marine & on both occasions I am extremely satisfied with both the workmanship & professionalism of Wayne & his staff. 

My Volvo Penta SP 290’s were damaged & now look brand new. The quality of the paint finish is superb.

Wayne also fitted new gear change cables. They travelled a 600 mile round trip & started work @ 0800hrs was completed by 1300hs, which in itself is an achievement! 

I have used another company previously & the service & paint finish was very poor, nothing like the quality of IVSS. I can fully recommend their excellent company & can supply photos of the before & after if anyone who is considering using IVSS is interested to see the quality of their products.

Nice to have people you can trust to carry out only the work you require and not make up jobs like some I have had dealings with. The work carried out is of the highest quality at a very reasonable price by very genuine trustworthy gentlemen. Highly recommended first class faultless service and the teas not bad either.

FROM MR M.BREAKEY
 
Good morning Wayne
 
I thought you might like to know that the outdrives are working well and that after swapping propellers around the optimum of the ones I have are a pair of 15x17 s. They are giving 23 knots without winding the engines right up and pull the boat out of the water easily.
I thought you might like these photos.
 
Best Regards

Volvo 290 Transom Shield Reconditioning
 
By IVSS Marine
Independent Volvo Sterndrive Specialists.Tel:  07890659931  Old Willow Farm, Newchurch, Romney Marsh, Kent TN29 0DY http://www.ivssmarine.vpweb.co.uk
 IVSS are a small independent firm working from a Farm based workshop on Romney Marsh in Kent. Owned by Wayne a highly experienced Volvo engineer they offer a fantastic alternative to buying costly new outdrives and transom shields. We discovered them when I needed two new transom shields for my Sunseeker Thunder hawk.
I was quoted £5000 for new Volvo units…ouch, so I sought a more cost effective alternative. I discovered IVSS who totally restored both my Volvo 290 DP transom shields for £1500.
The work list was extensive, including a lot of machining of one off stainless steel components and supplying new steering helmets for a fraction of Volvo’s quoted prices. The completed items were like new, freshly sprayed with new anodes, in fact you could not tell the difference from new items. With very low overheads they can offer a great service at low rates.
Also on offer is an exchange service on both outdrives and transom shields.

We bought a very tired 22 year old 30ft boat, she was doing 12knots flat out, (not good when she was rated at 40) the drives were banging and clanking on full turn and the power trim was all over the shop, then we discovered Wayne at IVSS. Wayne was happy to give advice on all aspects of the problems we had, and even took the time and trouble to call us with his suggestions even before we had chosen IVSS to do the work and he never once tried to hard sell his services. We hand delivered our DP290 stern drives and trim pumps and in a matter of weeks they were back to us on a pallet, they looked incredible, as if they had just rolled out of the Volvo factory. They were fitted to my Spirit 3000 by our local engineers who were impressed by the quality of workmanship, and had noted the upgrades IVSS had done to bring the drives up to date. She was dropped back into the water and all i can say is WOW. We gave her some power and she leaped into life, surging forward and cruising at 32knots (not bad for a 22 year old 8 berth boat) the trim was stable the drives did not bang or clank anymore and she runs as sweet as a nut. In short if you have problem with your stern drive or trim give Wayne a shout he is a top bloke, always happy to help and above all else he does what he says he will do. The boat Wayne brought back to life is on you tube if you want to see what he can do, search 'wee duncan' and look for yourself. Many Thanks Wayne for sorting Wee Duncan Gordon
