Verado's

Super duper engines, go like stink and I am also almost happy with fuel usage, BUT I can't find anyone to service them. Does anyone know of someone on the Southcoast of the UK preferably that does them.

Not all mercury dealers can as they need more training.

You can't need a service already surely?

Can you give us some idea of consumption please... i know they are pushing a big boat along!

I asume the people who installed the verado are not too close to hand for servicing?

RIBS Marine are just down the road from me, I have heard they are good but a bit expensive. As for Verados I have never seen one there, but then again not many people have seen one yet (except at the boat show). Best to give them a ring 01202 477327 ask to speak to Simon!

regards,

Alex

Problem sort of solved, spoke to Gavin at Mount Batten in Plymouth and they will shortly sending someone to Barrus for the extra training. So I will be giving them my business.

Plymouth is only 45 mins away at 50 knots
