Mitchells have been very good in my experience. Previously carried out a sizeable repair for me, gave me a date to bring the boat in and completed the work within a couple of days.

I think it was .. but to be told a time critical service would be ready for a certain date , and discover it hadnt even been looked at the day before it was to be collected, was what pissed me off, and they had had it for a good number of days .... I wouldnt have left it otherwise.

Anyway they gave me some rapid help with some parts I needed when I did the service .... just got annoyed I had to factor that into my workload when they said thay could do it no problem

i think the time of year is really the factor, i asked Cameron to do my annual service but no chance, busy busy. with that said every cloud has a silver lining, i done the service myself and saved 120 quid....more fuel to spend at loch lomond!

cheers
