Re: Mechanic near Stamford or Norwalk CT?

I'm sure any marina can recommend someone if no one chimes in.
While in Rye on a mooring we avoided begging our diesel mechanic to make a trip to Rye from Croton-On-Hudson. He patiently talked us through Changing Filters, Emptying out our full diesel tank and replacing it with clean diesel, bleeding all the air out of the system from primary filter-lift pump-secondary filter-injection pump-injector. This took all of Monday and 14 launch trips to go get stuff. I no longer fear my 2QM15. I think I can do that changing filters/bleeding stuff now in 30 minutes.
What seems to be the trouble?
'79 Camper & Nicholson 303, Blow'd up labor day
Sunfish just fine
Dyer Dow, crushed in Hurricane Sandy
Angler 204 Cuddy-, Crushed in Hurricane Sandy
Yes all true, No wonder no one will go on the water with me.
