Need an electrician in Annapolis area

I have a boat just South of Annapolis (Shadyside, MD). I need a new bilge pump, float and wiring installed. Anyone have a suggestion for someone they can trust?

Joe McCary,
Sailing on The Central Chesapeake Bay, West River, MD on my Catalina 27, Aelous II with my wife and friends.

Joe,

I used Peter Kennedy in 2003 for a refit of some electrical including AGMs. He did great work and I recommend him to you.

Peter Kennedy Yacht Services - Marine Electrical Systems

Agree also with Steve's recommendation of Bob Campbell (attended his class in 2002)

YMMV

Joe-

I'd highly recommend you avoid Peter Kennedy Yacht Services, since he's an incompetent lying bastard IMHO... If you're wondering why I say this, you might want to read this post, and that was the quality of the work when he personally guaranteed he'd make sure it was done properly. He was also almost three weeks late on the job to add insult to injury.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Peter Kennedy does good work. I have not seen, in person, any botched jobs. The only first hand account of a bad job I have heard of is from Sailingdog. My experience with him was very positive as were others from my marina.
