Need Experienced Mechanic in NYC area

Hello All

I own a pretty old Ferryman diesel engine on board my Aloa 34 (1974)

Its a R 30 m 25HP 1973

Apparently it has a head gasket leak. So it leaks exhaust into the cabin when we use it. Its not a big leak so we are able to finish the season with it.

However in October or so we are going to store her for the winter.

At this time I would like to find someone to do the head gasket replace job.

I have an excellent metal guy who can make just about any part, so he should be able to make a new gasket once we pull the old one.

any recommendations for this kind of work?

Try Mike Cuglietto at 347-683-7896. Usually works LI Sound so if you're on the Hudson he might not be local for you.
