zeehag marine man comes to mind-he is mobile--but all the mechanics in san diego are 85 dollars/hour and up---goood luck.

poopdeckpappy Yep, 90 to +90 is the going rate; of all the ones I know, Admiralty Marine @ 1053 Rosecrans would be who I'd call first. then maybe Quality Marine

tommays Its the going rate if not on the low side around here if the local guy has a rep you can check on

If its a saltwater cooled motor there will be some issues breaking things in taking apart the motor

Around here you would have to sign a corrosion dammage waiver to get anybody to service it

San Diego Atomic 4 Mechanic?

Does anyone know of a reasonable Atomic 4 mechanic in the San Diego Bay area? I've gotten tired of working on this engine more than sailing the boat.

The last mechanic I contacted wants $90.00 per hour to change valve springs. Is that a reasonable rate?
