Default Mercruiser technician-New York City area

This is probrably a wild shot but I have a customer that needs some help. Delivered a new twin engine 377 Scorpion boat that developed a weird wiring problem. All the marinas and dealers he's called are 2-3-4 weeks out. He needs it fixed tommorrow(Friday) and is willing to pay well to get it done.Doubt if it's doable but I figured if anyone could do it the OSO board would know. Any suggestions?

New York tech guys must have lots of work. My customer offered $500 cash to his marina technician to look at his wiring problem. Answer was we are 3-4 weeks behind. Weekend is lost but he still needs to get the wiring problem fixed. We have been trying to fix it by phone but it's tough when you can't actually see the boat. Any ideas on who he can call?We have talked to Merc and to Formula and they are trying to be helpful but a wierd wiring problem needs someone who can phsically have hands on the boat to solve the problem. There must be some technician that can look at it,but I have no NY contacts.

Sorry Robert,
I just got your clients message from earlier today but I'll call him tomorrow and discuss it with him. Again I apologise for lagging today....was doing the twist and twirl deal between the Catalina Ski Race and actually being responsible and getting everything packed up for this adventure I am about to embark on.

Sean
