volvo duoprop help needed

Need some help from our Scottish friends re a volvo penta duo prop, on a hard boat.

There is a group of us up in oban on holiday, weather so so, scenery amazing, rib conditions great

One of our friends has had a problem with his outboard drive on his boat and the drive shaft has sheared, he has ordered the replacement parts but he needs to find a volvo specialist who can strip and build it back up, parts should be here tomorrow, his holiday finishes on Saturday there is the problem, appreciate it is a bit short notice

Any recommendations would be appreciated , we are near to the crinan canal near Lochgilphead

Many thanks

What drive / shaft is it I think your nearest dealer is Ddz in Largs but you have ardoran marine in oban Eddie crossan in Balloch loch lomond & maybe Crinan boat yard &craobh marina do repairs too I think might be worth trying them all
