Midlands based outboard mech. needed

I have recently bought a boat sold as seen with no history and no idea whether the engines ran. Happy to say one runs - but one doesnt, turns over but wont fire. Being Northampton based it is hard to find outboard mechanics - anybody know of one who may be able to help.

Thanks Phil

Gregg Bassam is excelent at G.B.watersports, as per bedajim's link and he would be quite at home with a mariner v6, he is over at Peterbourgh but very fair but worth the time to traval to.
