Just placed an order last night with Marine Depot, after I received a busted Aquamaxx HOB 1.5 from Amazon (outlet tube was sheered off!) Ordered last night, called the main number to confirm the order was received, and spoke with Jr who informed me that my order was in process and will be shipped by 2pm today. It's coming from ATL, so fingers crossed I'll have it delivered here in NC by Saturday! First time ordering from these guys, but very happy with the customer service. Did you know under pricing on the Marine Depot Site, it'll show what warehouse your product is under! Very cool! Thanks guys!
