Fibreglass repairers - recommendations?

The outer casings on our outboard have been damaged and need some fairly major repairs.
Does anyone have any recommendations for repairers who might be able to turn them around in a couple of weeks? I can pick one at random but I'd rather have some feedback from previous clients!
Don't want to buy new if we can help it but time constraints mean it might be our best option....

Thanks.

Thanks Rogue, good call.

Orca can repair all 3 covers for less than the cost of a single new sidepanel and in the timescale that we require. I'm sure they'll do an excellent job.

The local RIB builders (Humber, XS) aren't interested in doing anything other than boat repairs and while there are a couple of fibreglass repairers in the area, they're not used to working on marine stuff.
