Default Stern Drive Mechanic

I'm looking for a mechanic that can service my Volvo Penta stern drive. I'm trying to find a guy that can pull my drive and replace seals and repaint. Someone that can come to my marina and pull the drive and work on it over the winter. Any leads?
Thanks,
Dick

Default Stern drive mechanic

That's a harsh statement in response to the silence your received for making a rather strange request. I'm not sure of any of your details, but it looks like you have a boat at a marina for storage, and you want a mechanic from another marina to come to that marina and remove your stern drive, take it someplace else for service, and then, presumably, return it in the spring.

Am I the only one who sees this as rather strange.??

I found it strange that this was not put in the boat repair section...

Hi, are you just looking to do the drive resealed or the gimbal bearing and bellows and hoses, shift cable and seal also when you have it all apart.

what is the year and how many hours on unit the paint is hard to do right so the paint will stay on with out taking it all apart to paint.

The problem with this request is that a mechanic will have to go into the storage location to pull the drive... Likely an issue with the Host Marina....

My suggestion would be to call all Marina's and get a price for the work, and then plan to store your boat with the Marina that has the best price for the scope of work you want....
