6 months ago – Doug and his team are awesome. Consistent, reliable and dependable. Along with modern alternators and starters he rebuilt twin alternator/generators last year for a vintage 1938 Garwood and they work perfect. Next one up is for a 1911 Kermath marine. Thanks for your dedication and service.

Response from Doug:

I am delighted we could help you last year Nelson! For many years now we have been proud to supply GILBERT MARINE with all kinds of alternators, starters and trim pump motors, and look forward to doing so again in 2019! regards and thanks from Doug and the team at AUTO ELECTRIC.

The Clungster
I had traveled about 4.5 hrs from my home location. I realized my alternator was no longer working. I decided to purchase an alternator to do the repair myself. I accidentally broke the alternator sense wire screw/bolt of the new alternator. I decided to call Doug to see if he could help me repair or fix the new alternator. Doug managed to successfully perform the repair on my new alternator. The total cost of the fix was $20.00. Doug later gave me torque specs for the sense wire screw (10ft-lbs) and gave me fair prices for alternators supplied by his company. Once I installed my new alternator with the fix, my truck started right up and I drove to my home location.

So, if you are ever having alternator or starter problems for your vehicle, I highly recommend giving Doug a call.

My plow motor failed at the wrong time. I literally ran to this shop and he made sure I was able to get to work without delay. And he did not take advantage of my desperation to get back to work. I was charged a normal rate and was treated like my fix was his priority. I'm very grateful.

Doug is terrific. We were stranded in the 1000 islands in our sailboat with a burned out starter. He personally delivered a new starter to us in record time. Later that day he e-mailed us to make sure everything worked.
