Diesal mechanic in Tampa FL
Robin, you need to make your query more geographically specific, as it doesn''t really work - for you or the vendor - to get a great rec on a vendor near Ruskin if you''re boat is in Clearwater (yet both are clearly part of the Tampa Bay area). You don''t want to be paying their labor rate to be driving long distances, nor do they want to be taken away from their primary service area.
If you are located in the St. Pete area, I can tell you that the best single mechanic I''ve ever experienced is Patrick Halbert with Accellerated Services. He''s also an exceptional carpenter and has lots of boat experience. You could do no better...but then, if outside the St. Pete area I don''t think his availability would work for you.
Good luck on both the work and the trip!
