Being in business for 56 years, we have the experience and knowledge to repair items that we sell, along with most items we don't. Todd Matthies (owner of MSD) oversees all repair work (if he's not doing the actual repair himself - which is usually the case) and double checks every repair before you, our customer, receive a call saying your gear is ready to be picked up. We also have set up a pre-trip inspection program for the warm water divers; get your gear inspected before you leave on your trip - we will do only what is necessary to insure that you won't have any issues on your vacation. Then bring your equipment in for its annual warranty service once you get back from the trip, and let us strip it down entirely to get the salt water cleaned out. You don't want salt water to be corroding your equipment for a year and then get it cleaned right before your next trip - by then the damage will be done. With this program, there will be no need to do an annual service before the trip and then again once you get back!
