    Default Questions about Elephant Butte

    New to the area (previously at LOTO) and trying to get my boating bearings....hopefully some lake regulars can steer me in the right direction. If so, much thanks in advance!

    What is a good indoor storage place? I'm about 34' from toungue to drive. Currently storing in EPTX, but there's no point in dragging the boat back and forth every weekend.

    Who does good work on Mercruiser engines/stern drives? Anything other than very basic maintenance I prefer to leave to the pros.

    Are there any good 'glass guys in the area? I've got some voids/dock rash that needs to be attended to.

    Are there any good interior vinyl guys in the area? Have a split seam on the motor hatch that needs to be repaired before it gets any worse.

    Again, thanks in advance for any advice you can offer!
