I'm not aware of one in Charleston. Mark Renda's shop in Myrtle Beach is supposed to be pretty good, although I have not used them.

That is Mark Renda's shop. Too Old has recommended him in the past.

I have seen several engines that MER in South Carolina has done and they are awesome.

From what I hear this guy does exactly what he says he will and puts exactly what you pay for in the engines.

Really, Russ Houston is still in the boat business? I thought he dropped out after Planetman was sold.

I was thinkin about stopping by there to check out a certain "boat of interest" around here. But from the rumors I've heard it sounds like it won't be there. Maybe someone could correct me if I'm wrong, since he hasn't chimed in on the gossip column yet.
