Default Anybody know ?

I drive past a farm south of Ransom IL now and then on my way to Pontiac and have noticed many different offshore boats parked around buildings. Is he a repair shop? I always go past at odd hours and never see any movement or I would just stop by and ask.

Not that familiar with the city names, but this sounds like Jeff Riss's place. If this is him he is an excellent mechanic (and honest in my dealings) and several boaters from Chicago harbors bring their boats to him. I drive from Antioch, 2.5 hours, to bring my boat to him. I think I take I88 to Hwy 47 north if this sounds right.
