Desperately need an electrician in Port Charlotte area

We need an electrician to hook up our Xantrex Freedom 10 Inverter back up.
We have most of our 1984 Watkins 33 electric wires cleaned up (yes, after 5 previous owners, it was a mess)
We just had the inverter refurbished by an authorized repair person on the east coast, but our boat is on the hard near Rotunda/Placida ...
and the electrician who took it out (and did a great job cleaning up wires and getting us safer) just got waylaid elsewhere.
We need the inverter in soon so we can check out new electronics and get ready to splash!
The captain is good at almost all work on a boat, but does NOT like to work with electric...and the captain's wife (you got it: me!) fully appreciates this one admission.
Anyone know anyone who can work on it?
I've Googled, but mostly found him, or people in Ft Meyers or Sarasota- both a bit far away.

Call Dave Weinstein at Professional Marine cell # 941 875 5329 - he has done lots of work for me, just finished replacing everything after a lightning strike. He knows his stuff.

Try John Riccio, forgot the name of his company; he's in the book at the front desk. Remember that the person you hire has to be cleared through the office.
