Default SternDrive Specialist

Just want to pass the word on Chris Martin, aka Sterndrivespec.
I had the chance to spend some time with Chris on Tuesday. I wanted my Bravo serviced for the upcoming season. I considered one of my local marinas but chose to drive the 100 mile oneway trip to Sterndrive Specialist in Constantia, NY.
I e-mailed Chris and asked ahead of time if he would be receptive to disassembling the drive while I was there. He said no problem, so there I was with drive in trunk, on Chris' doorstep. We proceeded to put the Bravo on the fixture and Chris went to work explaining every detail as to what to look for. Mine is an early style drive and I was shown the differences between the newer and older models. We did find some things that were questionable.
I left there knowing that Chris would take time to make things right and not spend money needlessly. If your looking to get a jump on the season, and are looking for a competent technician to perform service on your drive, whether it be Merc, OMC, or Volvo, give Chris Martin a call at Sterndrive Specialist.

Thanks Chris!

I've used Chris for several items including an engine swap from a 350Mag Alpha to a 7.4 Bravo and he is a great technician and a great guy. I also would highly recommend him to anyone.

I picked up my Sunsation last year from him. I bought the trailer off him. He seemed like he was a great guy
( just confused on all the rifles he had in his place)

I wished I lived closer to him but it's a good 6 hour drive from Philly
