Port Aransas, Texas: fuel polishing service

Anyone know of a good mechanic and fuel polishing service in port Aransas, Texas. We have been away from the boat, kinda don't want to run the engine until we get the fuel cleaned.
My hubby wants to install a polishing system, but that's a whole other project!

Hey guys, welcome back. Yes, I know, we've missed each other. Try Jeff Millard (commonly known as "Driftwood Jeff" - that was the name of his boat). He'll either help you out, or know someone who can. 361.332.1943

Thanks, you are the second person to recommend him. Do you know Stray Cat at our marina? That was the fourth or fifth boat I owned. Kinda cool to run into an old "flame"
See ya,
Erika

No, I don't know Stray Cat.

Jeff is wonderful. He's done a few projects for us. Here's one:

Remove old wind instruments at mast top (saw off with a hacksaw - 20+ years of rust), install new instruments, fabricate a new windex mount, install new windex. 7 trips up the mast (67 feet) over 2 days. Total, including the Windex and mount? $175.

How about a better one? Replace lamps on the tricolor and the anchor light, including the new LED lamps? $80.
