End of an era for Barrus

Thought someone might look at this.....

Got your attention!. Well after 13 years as the Outboard motor support engineer for Barrus i have left and started up on my own as a dealer down in Cornwall, a massive move which i hope will work out well. Anyway Black Dog Marine in looe is pretty much up and running. We are now Main Dealers for Mercury, Yanmar, Mercruiser and John Deere marine. So if your looking for a great dealer in the area look us up. I have also manged to get hold of another ex Barrus Marine Diesel engineer to look after the diesel side of things!

And of course all Ribnet members get a discount!

A brave move for which I congratulate you. A quality engineer with a strong reputation, is never short of work.

I wish you luck, now if only you would open up near Poole ...

Very best of luck to you Rob, it can only do a marine tech the world of good to move to the coast from slap bang in the middle!
The new house looks stunning as well by the way! Are you planning to find an excuse to get to Seawork this year?
