They literally destroyed my engine that went in for a service. Rang me on the Thursday morning to find out if I had the timing cover then called again later in the day to say it had gone bang.
Charged me 480 for the service and wouldn't let me have my boat back unless the bill was paid first. Contacted trading standards etc but had no choice if I wanted to get my boat back I had to pay.
Got my engine back in a number of boxes. By co-incidence sold the bits recently for 150 on eBay.
In my opinion a very crooked dealer and I wouldn't risk using them although they did have a good mechanic who went freelance/mobile called Steve.

Caveat Emptor imho.
