Default Looking for a boat marina... or boat mechanic

Anyone recommend a great boat marina or boat mechanic for "un-winterizing" an 18' Maxum with a Mercury motor?

Also some where/one that can trouble shoot wiring on a boat trailer.


Thanks

Dave

Not for "unwinterizing". It takes minuites. Hose hook up, freeze plugs in, muffs on, water on, fire-in-the-hole.

there really is no unwinterizing procedure, other then I would recommend new plugs and fresh fuel.

Shes never come out and said she didn't like Jeeps.... She does like boats a lot, when she can use them. I'm keeping her boat since she hasn't used it in two years...
