Service costs

What do people think is a fair cost for a service on a Marina 75 2/.
At the same time can anyone suggest a good place between London and the Solent to use?
Many thanks

Neal, asuming she runs okay and she did yesterday then why not DIY, especially as its a a carb 2 stroke, so fairly simple and a mornings work.

New plugs, change gearbox oil (3 tubes required) check water pump, check annodes, drain carbs, clean out fuel filter (Richard B did a good post a while back) grease everything and spray power head with Quicksilver spray stuff.

Check battery and wheel bearings at the same time.

40 for bits or 150 for dealer to do the same thing if you can find one not snowed under with work at the moment.

Pete

Thanks Pete I am oK with the Plugs and some of the other bits but have had a couple of minor starting probs this year. I am sure it not to much but am going to use the boat on holiday and dont want to have too many problems and let the kids down. I have got a manual so will have a look into doing couple of bits. I think for 150 (if thats the going rate) I would like someone who knows more than me have a look over it but you are right I should be doing it.

Having done bit more digging about on past posts has anyone current experance of the RIB service centre @ Southampton sound OK on the phone.
