Question Holland Area Mechanic Needed!!!

I sold my boat and the guy who bought it wanted to know of a good mechanic in the Hollland area that knows high performance engines. I had worked on the boat for most of the stuff, I don't know anyone the Holland area that works on high Performance boats. Well it's not that high Performance 500 hp. I know that we have alot of OSO people here that boat in that area. Who can I recomnend to this guy? Thanks

I live in Holland and have tried them all. Craig at Offshore Upgrades is by far the best at not only wrenching and troubleshooting but is a really fair and honest (not that the others are not) guy. I had him do a lot of work and he always called and let me know things were changing then invited me out to see why before i made my decission. You will not go wrong with him.

That area does spawn a lot of great mechanics. I had a 92 Powerquest...I wanted some worked doen on it buy the factory...they wouldn't do it. But one of the employess there (who is not there now) Dave Lamar...called me and said he would do it on his off time........so I dragged the boat up there and he had the work done in recorded time...and never a problem after that. The baot was out of warranty and the gauges kept falling out oif the dash....so they sold me a 96 dash and he installed it. It would have taken me 3 months to do it. and no one around here would touch it.

Thanks for the input, Sounds like a I can give him a couple of people to choose from. I have done almost all the wrenching on the boat, but this guy only wants to do the general maintance on the boat and if something should happen he wanted to be able to get some help or advice.

Thanks Again!!
