Is that the little marina in a creek on the west side, that is a Sabre dealer?
Its Tri state marine. Grady White, Parker and Sea Pro dealer. The actual dealer is up the street, buy they also own the fuel dock/tackle/bait store on the water.

Tri State in Deale, MD is oddly enough where I actually I bought my 228 Seafarer last fall. I met up with a forum member from on here ItalianAngler, bought him lunch and then went and looked at the boat together as I had some basic knowledge about Grady White's but nowhere near as much as he does. Great guy, beautiful afternoon and area with tons of great scenery. You could always try reaching out to him as I believe he said he's about 15-20 minutes from Deale? Pretty good experience with the dealership with not really any complaints at all besides a few minor timing issues with a sea trial run, inspections and so forth that pushed me back a day or two. Fortunately I wasn't on any sort of time crunch or anything and it all worked out great in the long run.

Damn small world man! I get fuel at Tri State's fuel dock!. They unfortunately won't work on OX66 engines anymore. I have used them for small odds and ends! My marina is about a block down the street from their showroom.

Interesting… I figured they worked on all kinds of Yamaha motors, whether they’re 4 stroke or 2 stroke. And yes, very small world in that I’ve actually purchased all 3 of my boats back out in Maryland. The first was actually on the eastern shore in a small town called Oxford, MD, which looks like it’s about 90 minutes or so from Deale. Pretty crazy that my first boat and this boat were 90, minutes from each other.

Talked to them a few weeks ago about changing VST filters. No longer work on 2 strokes because they are so ...... finicky (for lack of a better word) first- oil pump, next week- vst filters, regulator screen, following week- spark plugs. Ill agree it's tough to keep them running in top shape. But even rough, they still run damn well.. LOL.... now I started blowing a little smoke all the time. Have to check the oil linkage. Might be running a little oil rich.
