I can vouch for gedaggett, while not personally, but he has been on this and other forums and does excellent mechanical work. He took a free wreck of a boat and made it much nicer so he knows the boats. He is a good source of advice for sailing on a budget on Lake Michigan. And I am sure if he was an ax murder or anything we would have heard about it!
