& Gear in use by The Mad Dogs
The Mad Dogs have had excellent responses to our
personal reviews and ratings section of products &
services we personally use. Unlike many magazines,
we don’t rely on advertising revenue from the same
companies whose products we are reviewing.
It is difficult for magazines
to offer non-biased, honest and hard-hitting reviews
about a product when the company spends thousands of
dollars on full-page color ads.
Many times boat owners chuckle when they recite the
well-known saying “Boating is the joy of performing
maintenance and repairs in exotic location!”. For
such a statement to be so well entrenched in the

|How we rate the products
& services we use
Product ratings & reviews are based
entirely on our own experiences, opinions and on the products we have
purchased or acquired. We make every effort to pass honest, non-biased
reviews and opinions. In our opinion, and to provide valuable
information to our visitors, the reviews and ratings page is not the
place to voice a grudge or exploit a vendetta.
Issues happen in manufacturing, products are not always 100% perfect,
customers are not always dealt with according to company policy - these
things are a fact of life. If we have reviewed or rated your company,
your product or your services and you feel our judgment is not in
keeping with your policies please let us know.
Making things right
The ratings can be "upgraded" and reviews amended simply by resolving
the issues to a mutually satisfactory solution by replacement or repair.
We allow all of our product or service providers to "make things right"
and if we are satisfied that this is how you intended to treat your
customers we will "make things right" on our end as well.
