Rick and Jennifer (Liberty Marine) are really nice, honest people. I would give them a try to do maintenence, etc...... For motors, I would go to Larry Peto.

Never heard a good story about BRE.

I'd look at Blosdale (he originally built the engine that's in my Schiada) or take a trip to Tucson and see Larry Peto. Larry would probably be my first choice overall. Never heard a bad word uttered about Peto.
I have heard of Larry Peto way back to my drag boat days. I have a friend in Kansas running his motors, he has set numerous records. Everything I have heard for years has been good.

Larry Peto is a great motor builder. Fair pricing, reliable and a dyno that doesn't lie. Absolute marine is another winner. For the big jobs I think he sends them to Phaff, and Arron the owner of Absolute knows boats very well.
