Several years back there was an older gentleman who work out of his truck at Brown Marine, now I believe coal Pelicans Perch. He seemed well respected by his colleagues there. You might be able to contact them for a phone number. Just my two cents, Mike.

Hi Blue Heron,
I too am in Pensacola. I'd recommend Bell Marine or the mechanics at Pelican's Perch. They are next door to each other on Bayou Chico.

I have no personal experience with the guys at Pelican's Perch, but have years of experience with Bell's Marine. I've never been disaapointed with their work.

Later,
Dan

I forgot to mention Tom Vandiver. He is active in the cruising community and great mechanic. He does just about anything mechanical with boats. Just Google 'Tom Vandiver Pensacola'.

His shop is located on the northwest shore of Bayou Chico.

Regards,
Dan

If you don't mind who did you use and what did you think of the service? Mike.

I used Mark Hyma. He is busy but matter of fact.
