Lewis Marine Supply Acquires Jerry’s Marine Service

FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida-based Lewis Marine Supply is excited to announce the acquisition of Jerry’s Marine Service. Jerry’s Marine Service is a family owned business founded in 1971, selling marine parts, engines and motor parts, and is an authorized dealer for Suzuki and Honda. Jerry’s Marine has locations in Fort Lauderdale, FL and Charleston, SC.

Company President, Chelsea Beyer, “Adding the Jerry’s Marine Service business to the Lewis Marine Supply team is a foundational business opportunity. Fort Lauderdale is our home base, and we will be even stronger in our home market. The addition of Charleston is a first step in an expanded geographic reach to better service customers. The Jerry’s product lines are complimentary to Lewis’, greatly enhancing our offering and allowing one-stop shopping for our customers.”

Jerry’s Marine owner Jon Lewis will be staying on to lead the sales team. He adds, “This acquistion gives us a great opportunity to offer more to our customers, but equally important is the cultural fit that our companies have. We are two traditionally family run businesses who have always valued personal service and strong product knowledge. We are excited to join forces and grow as an integrated team moving forward.”

The business will operate as Lewis Marine Supply, while keeping the Jerry’s Marine Service name for motors and engine related business. Jerry’s Marine location in Fort Lauderdale will relocate into the main Lewis Marine facility located at 220 SW 32nd Street in Fort Lauderdale in the next few months. Jerry’s Marine location at 3601 Meeting Street Rd in Charleston will be rebranded to Lewis Marine Supply and continue to operate from that location.

As always, for Service Supreme, Call Lewis Marine!

Is Your Emergency Safety Kit Ready To Keep You Safe?

Boaters are required to have safety equipment by the U.S. Coast Guard for all Vessels. For personal watercraft, for example, a small kit for treating minor cuts and scrapes is probably adequate. For boating farther from shore, a more elaborate marine safety kit may be needed.

Having a proper marine First-Aid Kit on board can help you render immediate emergency care, and sometimes even save a life. It’s one of the safety-related items that Coast Guard Auxiliary and United States Power Squadrons® vessel examiners discuss when conducting an annual Vessel Safety Check (VSC) on recreational boats.

Make sure before you cast off that your marine emergency safety equipment is up-to-date and meets todays regulations. Just remember… it’s better to be safe then sorry. Be prepared!

What are some safety kit items that you are required to carry on board?

  • Personal Flotation Devices
  • Fire Extinguishers
  • Visual Distress Signals
  • Sound Producing Devices
  • Marine Sanitation Devices
  • Pollution Regulation Placards

The general scale for boat classifications is as follows:

  • Vessels less than 16 feet
  • Vessels 16 – 26 feet
  • Vessels 26 – 40 feet
  • Vessels 40 – 65 feet

The Rest of the Gear We Recommend

The above list will satisfy the minimum requirements for operating your boat, but there are other safety products that have proven their worth in the event something happens on the water. While these products will require a little more investment on your part, they are an investment in the safety of yourself and others on your boat. At Lewis Marine Supply, we are committed to making life on the water as fulfilling and enjoyable as possible and having the right safety gear is part of that.

This marine wood is sometimes called Okoume Mahogany and is great for marine wood applications such as building race boats, boat furniture and building cabinets as well as other wood projects for boats.
