If I knew a diver in that area who would do it, I'd jump on the chance. But I don't want to waste several days finding one.
I've seen countless divers at marinas over the years. Even Fastbottoms here dives at marinas every day. Sure, there is some risk, but it has never seemed to be a serious concern, unless you know of a reason to be concerned.

Perhaps the concern about a generator at another marina is the most telling. That's just never going to travel that far. I think they are taking you for the quick haul $$. Sorry.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
