Default Anyone know an engine builder that can rebuild my engine right??

I have had a company rebuild my left engine 3 times in the past year. I have boated 20 hours in 2 summers and I am sick of it. Every time the engine comes back it goes in and has some kind of problem. 1st it was the harmonic balancer, then I lost oil pressure, and now I either blew a hole in the piston or cracked a ring. I don't care about the BullSh*t warranty anymore, I just want to boat again. If anyone knows someone who can rebuild it right, please let me know so I can use my boat for once. I also need it done quickly, which is the kicker because I don't think people like JC Perf have time to do it right now. Please let me know so I don't have to be boatless for another summer.

I also don't want to ship it all over the country, so someone on the east coast would be best. I am in Connecticut.
