Default Jacksonville Mechanic?

I'm looking for a Merc outboard mechanic in Jacksonville who returns phone calls and can get the job done. Anybody have suggestions?

Thanks.

Randy

Uh, yeah. It was fun while it lasted. I get this fast beeping alarm. the engine shuts down, seems like a safety thing. I wait ten minutes and the engine starts up and is fine. Oh, if only that engine hadn't cut out on me, would have been a lot of fun out there. Wild Bill had to trade his beer for a new pair of underwear.

LMAF.................. DUDE, I heard you almost took the wild out of Bill................. Pat said you guys were Rooollin. Are those oil injected? You think the float stuck in the oil resevior on the engine....... I would have to loook to see what sets of the alarm and places it in slow mode (derated).

I'm not much of an engine guy, but they are oil injected. Something hapens after poppin off a few waves. This boat loves to fly. Wish I had twin 300s instead of 200s.

I heard you guys had a blast up in Ohio. Sorry to miss the wedding.

Yeah, we had a blast!! It was unreal...................... ItsPeanut was our fearles leader.

So, back to the boat, Which you think it was, a gas, spark, or compression issue...........? Were you able to crank the engine?
