Diesel Mechanic Recommendation - Baltimore/Annapolis
Well I've really gone and done it now! We pulled the red beast from the boat and brought it home, a Westerbeke 50 that is, for what I hope is just a mini rebuild.
I would like to do as much of the work as I can, not just for $$ savings, but also for the learning experience. That said, I know there are going to be some things that are best left to an experienced mechanic.
I would like to hear your recommendations for a mechanic in the Baltimore/Annapolis area? I can bring the engine to them. Bonus would be if they wouldn't mind me looking over their shoulder.
In addition, I would appreciate any recommendations for part suppliers, either local or on-line. Locally, I have found Cobe Marine in Pasadena competitive and pretty good at getting things. I have used Torrensens, good but pricey. I've also purchased from gotomarine.com and been pleased with their prices and customer service.
Lastly, I have a couple of books on Marine Diesel Repair
, but what do you like?
