Dockside mechanics in Miami

Does anyone know a good dockside diesel mechanic in the Miami area? I'm having problems with my Yanmar 15hp. Although I'm pretty decent mechanically, I'm also smart enough to know when something is outside of my wheelhouse.

I'm looking for someone reliable but don't want to get raked over the coals price wise... I know that I'm looking for a unicorn.

Does anyone have any experience in with a honest mechanic in the area? Any input is appreciated.

I'd give Parks, You know Hopcar a call.
He's in Miami, and I assume has been there for awhile?

I'm sure they don't have a mechanic, but might know of one.
