Winter is coming!!!!

Here at Blue Marsh Outdoors we’re getting geared up for the fall and winter seasons. Just last week our first boat winterization for the year rolled into our shop and is now safely tucked away in storage.

We’re running a promotion now through the end of October - here are the details: If you get your boat winterized and shrink wrapped with us we will discount your winters storage by 50%! That is a $150 savings!! This deal is only good until October 31st, so don’t delay too long! Our winter storage runs from October 1st - April 30th. We also have summer storage and all year storage available!

Our winterization pricing starts at $80 for a small 2-stroke outboards and ranges in pricing depending on engine type and horsepower from there. To get the most accurate price quote we recommend calling our store at (610) 488-5540. Our winterization process includes draining all water from the engine and flushing with non-toxic antifreeze, fogging the engine, treating the fuel, check any spin off fuel/water separator, check drive oil and propeller, and disconnect the battery.

Our shrink wrapping costs $10 a linear foot for boats under 26’ in length- this includes PWC. Additional costs can occur if absorbent pouches, vents, or framed structure needs to be made to facilitate the warp.

We are still renting kayaks and canoes for Blue Marsh Lake as well! The rentals will remain in service for a few weeks yet before finally be closed for the season sometime in November (weather permitting). Overall we had a nice summer of rentals and we thank all who came out and paddled the warm afternoons away with us! We will see you next year in April!!

Finally, we would like to mention our vastly expanded tackle inventory. The past several week have been a mad house here at our store entering, organizing and pricing new inventory! We have expanded all sectors of our inventory substantially - especially our tackle! We still carry live bait as well, and plan on keeping it throughout the winter months.

We will see you out on the lake!

Warmer weather is upon us!

Birds are chirping, flowers growing and the water level at Blue Marsh Lake is back up, which means leisure boating and summer bathing are right around the corner!

We’ve been improving the grounds at our store all winter long - including building our bait and tackle inventory to over double the size it was last season. We also have expanded our live bait tank and carry shiners and fat heads all year long! We have a variety of quality used marine motors and boats for sale along with all of the parts and accessories ones boat may need.

Our rentals fleet has also expanded! We still rent kayaks, canoes, paddle boards and pontoon boats, but now we have fishing boats as well! Un-powered rentals are available, but powered rentals will be available in the beginning of May! Rental reservations can be made by phone or in person at our store.

We are servicing and repairing boats again this year - we’re currently performing a lot of ‘spring flush’ and tune-up type maintenance. At out shop, we can perform simple tune-ups all the way up to replacing old soggy floors or complete engine repowers! We can rebuild carbs, gear cases, upper and lower units.

We have several boats for sale and consignment. For a complete list click on the button on our website in the top right corner of the screen. We have already sold several this season, but we are getting more in daily. Call us with your inquiry.

We hope to see you on the lake this season! Don’t forget we still have ethanol free gasoline!

It's time to start thinking about harvest...

...And winterization! It's almost that time of the year again! Time for the leaves to change and the temperatures to fall. 

Along with the beauty of fall time also comes the responsibility of ensuring your boat is ready for the winter months to come. It's imperative to properly winterize your boats engine to avoid engine damage, due to freezing, and ensure that the first start in spring is trouble free!

Here at Blue Marsh Outdoors we have a very comprehensive winterization and shirk wrap operation. Including: fuel stabilization, engine fog, oil change, drive oil change, antifreeze pumping, battery testing and more! We can accommodate virtually any engine.. from small jet powered engines all the way up to large big block motors. 

Shrink wrapping is also a very important part of preparing for winter especially if your boat is stored outdoors! Our shrink wrap is of the highest quality to ensure if your boat is stored outside all winter that it'll hold up in the harshest of conditions. We also are able to build framework within the interior of your boat to thwart any snow or rain to accumulate within and little nooks that occur because of your boats extruding features like a ski tower or large console. 

Give us a call for price quotes or more information about our winterization scheduling! 610-488-5540


Summer is here and we have so much more to offer you this season!

Give us a call or stop by 7 days a week! We're happy to help you with all of your outdoor needs! 

See you on the lake!

New Year - New Projects!

It's about 12 degrees and sunny here in Bernville today.  There's a thin layer of snow covering everything here at the shop and the wind is howling.. Seems like it's the perfect time stay inside, crank the heaters and start improving the Store further for another fun upcoming season in the sun. 

Since last year around this time when we arrived on the property that is now Blue Marsh Outdoors, we've had numerous ongoing projects.  Including extensive clean up inside and outside of the building and moving hundreds of salvaged boats and boat parts.  For several weeks we ran machinery all hours that the sun provided light - scooping, moving, disregarding and preserving all that you see now at 5097 Bernville rd, but this was just the beginning...

Now that a new year is upon us we're going to take things to the next level. Starting with improving our shop facility and parts on hand to more efficiently serve you, our Customer.  Last year we stored our kayaks, and numerous outboard and inboard engines we had for sale in our shop area leaving only enough room to fit two customer boats inside for service work. This year, because of a largely expanded rentals inventory, we're making room by storing kayaks outdoors in a satellite building along with many of the engines. This means we will have room for over twice the amount of boats inside to service and repair. 

Over the past season we've been listening to you..  We've heard your suggestions to carry brand specific lubricants and products that you know and trust. We now carry Yamalube, Envinrude and Mercruiser brands of the highest qualities. We are also stocking live bait of the heartiest quality that won't leave you floating dead at lake, so you won't miss that next big catch. New tackle items and rods will also be available for both the beginner and advanced angler. 

Finally, we thank you, the community for your support and input this past year. We look forward to serving you in the coming season for all your recreational needs. Rentals will be in full swing in a few short months.  Keep an eye on our Blue Marsh Rentals schedule for upcoming events and promotions. We will be offering paddle board seminars and rental discount packages for group events. 

Happy New Years from all of us here at Blue Marsh Outdoors! 

Winter is in full swing and so is our winterization and shrink wrap program!

Winter got here in a hurry - Make sure your boat is ready for the long, cold months ahead. We have our winterization and storage contracts available for you to view/complete on our website or you can always call us at 610.488.5540 for additional information and scheduling. 

We are also operating on a different schedule for the winter season. We are open for walk in business Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 9AM - 5PM, however, we will be answering the phone all week long, anytime. 

For the more adventurous among you we are still offering kayak rentals for a relaxing paddle in the quiet, stillness of winter. Our off-season rates can be found on this website under the rentals tab at the top right corner of the page. We have angler kayaks available as well for those looking to do a little fishing in the cold water. 

Live bait is still available! We have worms, large shiners, medium shiners and fat head minnows. There is also a live bait machine in the works for 24 hour access next spring. 

Have a Merry Christmas from all of us here at Blue Outdoors! 


Fall is here!

As the boating seasons comes to an end we reflect upon the great summer we had here at Blue Marsh. We had the opportunity to meet so many new people and make new friends. It was a pleasure getting to know all the wonderful people at Berks Park and Rec and all of the hard working park rangers. 

We're still open 7 days a week here at Blue Marsh Outdoors - we're almost in full swing winterization mode!! We have begun shrink wrapping and winterizing vessels of all sizes and have still have availability in our schedule to facilitate more - so give us a call today!
