Need a Merc mechanic

EarlEarl Posts: 54 Greenhorn
As per title, looking for a decent merc person in the Tampa area. Got an older 75hp 2stroke that I,m replacing with a newer (new?) 4stroke, but want any issues with the old engine fixed, or at least identified before I sell it. Don't want some one p/oed at me and stuck with a broken engine. Thanks in advance.

    What part of Tampa? Specifying an area in your title might have gotten you more response.

    I have worked with Crackerboy Marine, Piper's Marine, and Mayday Marine over the years for various things.

    Crackerboy is close to Raymond James, Piper's is up near Oldsmar / Westchase, and Mayday is down closer to St Pete.

    I'd use any of those guys again...

    Thank You. I didn't specify a particular area since I am willing to take the boat to any good mechanic

    If you don't mind a ride up to Weeki Wachee, I use Doug's Marine - Andy and Doug a father and son Mercury shop. On 550 a few miles W of the WW Spring attraction.

    I was real happy with the work of Peterson Marine in Pinellas Park. Certified Mercury mechanics.
