wanted, dive service near victoria bc

Hello all! I'm new here and this is my first post, so I'm not sure where to post this request. I tried searching existing posts but I couldn't find anything related. Anyways, I'm looking for a dive service to dive and replace all my anodes on my Trojan 37. I'm at a marina in Sidney BC. Has anyone got any suggestions or had any experience with this? I've contacted 2 companies that advertise this service but no one had got back to me yet. Thanks for any and all replies

These folks are great. They live on a sailboat at Fisherman's Wharf Victoria.

Ask the marina. They usually have a list of reputable contractors.

Thanks wedivebc. They're just around the corner. I've just sent them an email. Being family day I may not get a reply but if they don't get back to me by tomorrow I'll let you know and I'd appreciate your offer of texting them. Thanks again.

I concur! I live across from Matt & Jocelyn at Fisherman's Wharf. They not only are great at what they do, but they deserve your business.

Thanks, he's certainly getting good reviews. But since he's out of town for awhile, and cant do the job, he's going to have an associate contact me. Which I thought was nice of him to make that effort and follow up on my request.

Matt and his team did my 32 foot sailboat a few weeks ago. Great work and fast. Three zincs, and a hull clean in half an hour.

The anodes are all replaced now. The job went very smooth and professional, with a crew of 3. I want to thank everyone for their suggestions. Matt was out of town so he set me up with a fella named Derek. All 11 anodes were replaced, thru-hulls cleared, and the 2 props were scraped. All within an hour. They came all the way from Duncan the next day after contacting them, so I was very pleased.
Being new on here I'm not sure of the protocol about mentioning company names, but if anyone is interested, I can send you a private message with Derek's company name.

I can't imagine why a crew of three divers would be required to do something as simple as replacing a few anodes. Nor can I imagine what that would cost. That said, your dive service (and readers, no doubt) would appreciate you mentioning their company name. No reason to keep that a secret.
