While playing on the waters of the Delta brings to mind images of warm summer days and fun with friends, there’s also a technical side to those invigorating rides.

Jeff McThorn, owner of Delta Watercraft on Bethel Island, is the man many riders depend upon to service and repair their water toys and boats. Since 1997, McThorn has operated a local boat and personal watercraft repair and maintenance business, first in Oakley then, since 1999, on Bethel Island. 

“The Delta has a big appeal to jet skiers and boaters and there was no one doing this kind of service and repair out here,” he said. “I decided to move here, buy land and set up my own shop.”
