Diesel mechanics near Seattle?

Do any of you have a recommendation for a good mobile diesel mechanic in the Seattle area? I'm moored at Shilshole. I have a Yanmar 15hp engine that's been sitting idle for a couple of years and needs a looking at. I'm hoping to have someone come over and take a look sometime over the next week.

I know I can pick one of the better known shops and find good folks, but would love to throw some business to a small shop/individual who knows their stuff.


Thanks!

It's been YEARS, but there was a place right at the South end of the marina which helped us with a Yanmar 3hm35. We only needed them one time, (after that I learned how to service it myself) but they were reasonable and fast.

Hi... try Craig at Hatton Marine Engine and Generator Systems, Inc.

(he did a pre-purchase engine survey for me last year and came well-recommended)

Cheers!
Steve
