Need an A4 Mechanic in Chicago
Im the proud new owner of a 1976 Cal 27 Tall Rig with an Atomic 4.
I've been sailing for a few years now, but this is my first experience with an Atomic 4, and was hoping that I could find someone to work with this spring to ensure that I have it in good running shape before she sees the water.
While I realize that traditional mechanics dont really "teach" while they work, I was hoping that you could also show me around this engine a little.
What I am looking for is a basic engine check; as well as any advice with regards to oil changes, new carb, fuel, fuel filter, etc etc .
I store the boat in Canal Street Marina during the off months.
I realize it is a bit early in the Chicago winter season to start worrying about it, but as a true Chicago sailor, the winters are the worst, and I cant wait to get back in the lake!
Please feel free to contact me if you have knowledge of A4's, and are willing to share or work out a deal.
