Default North FL mechanic

Moved down to Jacksonville from Atlanta & need someone reliable to do some work on my 496. Anyone have any recommendations? I'm not above driving a couple hours for a solid mechanic that I can trust. Cheers...

Call Jon Biggers 904-874-0174. He has a small business called North Florida PowerBoat repair. He does mostly minor stuff, (routine maintenance, raw water pumps, drive service, etc). But he is capable of doing more in-depth if required. He is mobile and will come to the boat. Good friend of mine that has done plenty of work for me and other powerboat guys down here in Jacksonville. Also check out the Jacksonville Performance Boat Club, President is Mark Pickard. PM me and I will give you his contact information. Welcome to Jax. I have a 25 O/L red, yellow, purple graphics. Usually around the intracoastal or run down the ST. Johns to Outback Crabshack. Jax is amazing for boating as long as you don't mind a little salt water.

Give Bruce a call. He's a top notch builder and he very very clean so you don't need to worry about footprints on your seats.

He's also an Ilmor service center.
