Bought the boat, need vendor suggestions in the Pacific Northwest, USA

Hello all,

We bought a Wauquiez Amphitrite in Seattle, WA, USA, and now we have a few details to muck through. Specifically, I am looking for vendor advice for the following:

Electrician - batteries are shot, and I want to go LiFePO4. I think I know what I need and want, but need help tuning the schematic and with the actual install. I have never wired 12V.

Engine Mechanic - Having never had a diesel, we need a thorough walk through of our engine, a Perkins 4-154. Not just a whats-what, but practical advice as well for when we are out and about without assistance.

Fuel Tank Cleaning - The boat has been very lightly used for the past 17 years, and I expect there is a bit of muck and sludge in the tanks.

Canvas - The current dodger frame is solid, the canvas is rotting away. Iverson is full through the Fall, and spendy. Looking to at least replace the dodger canvas, and would like to discuss a bimini and full enclosure.

Thanks everyone!

Iverson Dodgers make excellent, esthetic dodgers. www.iversonsdesign.com
Boat Electric down on Lake Union was good, but I'm not sure they are still around.

Thanks Paul, I'll look into Boat Electric.

Anyone else?
