Good Mercury Dealer - Need Recomendations

I need to get my Optimax serviced.

The boat is based in Southampton.

Need recomendations on who to use please.

Also, what should I be paying for an annual service on a 225 Opti with the impellor changed?

Thanks all.

Fairweather for me too. Very good at what they do, plus they really do get on with the job.

Lee at fairweather is a good Opti man but the best outboard guy I know is Mark Bleaker MB marine Ocean Quay but he may have a bit of a waiting list
