I bought a sib off him a couple of years back great lad very maticulass quoted me around 160 for my 90 service but I had mine done at ribquest in dronfield but they have now been sold to a salcome company. It's a small operation doing some lathe work or similar not far off the M1.i have mailed Morton boats in Lincoln another cracking lad but I don't know if he does susi's or if he knows anyone will let you know.
Another one warrior boats in Preston don't know how far that is for you.
Cheers

Cheers Jeff. Yeah, Ribquest have shut up shop & they were my local dealer🙄. I need to get some recall work done on the engine, unless I can find a good "local" dealer it looks like a trip to Yeovil.

Cheers Jeff, but I need a bona fide dealer. It's a recall on the engine to change the ECU, also I need it serviced by Suzuki for the next 4 years to keep the warranty. I might give Suzuki HQ a call tomorrow, but if past experience is owt to go by I won't get far, they're hopeless 🙄

Don't want to say too much on the forum but I will not use them again! I'm going to "self-insure" the warranty period... offset by the massive saving of DIY services.

I like the Yukon analogy.
I use Clyde Outboards at Port Glasgow for ALL my outboard work. A round trip of just over 400 miles but l consider it worth the effort.
Cameron and Aaron do great work at reasonable rates and aren't bull$hit merchants.
Can't fault them & given the shocking service I had from pennine marine personally wouldn't risk my gear to anybody else.
