Ask Mike at Hopkins Marine to recommend someone. I think he knows everyone in West Palm.

Re: Good Marine Mechanic in West Palm Beach ?

look for a Dutch sailboat, s/v Santa Maria ... ask for Joost (pronounce Joast) ... he is in West Palm Beach ... so is s/v Baerne, another Dutch boat ... Peter is the captain ... they might help ...
trustworthy anyway ...

Re: Good Marine Mechanic in West Palm Beach ?

The most honest and reliable is David Post dba A mechanic on Wheels. His number is 561-655-9555. I have used him for the past six years with no problems or complaints. Hard to find someone like that these days and when you do its hard to share the news but he's such a good man he deserves the credit.
All the best,
Clif

I used Roy Willis (561) 373-6879 about 2 years ago when I was in the area, he was honest, reliable, and willing to ride out to my boat at anchor in the dink. Cracker Boys had a list of service providers for everything from AC to Welders. Good luck!
