Christchurch/ Bournemouth Service recomendations

Am having to admit that the summer is over & so are looking to get the boat taken out & so will need to get my 3 motors serviced & one winterised. Any recomendations who can do the opti ( service & winterise) , the 50 Yam (4/s) and the 2.5 Suzuki all done at the same time - the opti will be in a yard & the other at my home ?

I'm hoping I can get the same person to do all 3 at a sensible price on the same day, but know that the opti might need a bit more technical ( laptop) work to winterise- or thats what I've been told !

RiBs marine can handle the OPTI, they have all the plug in bits and we have found them competative and helpfull. Not sure if Mike @ Southcoast Marine has the OPTI kit.

I would definitely recommend RIBS Marine, very helpful and professional in my 10 years experience of using them. They are Mercury Dealers but I'm sure they can sort out the other two.
