I think the IoM is less than 50 miles west of Blackpool (don't have my chart handy to check....) You could combine a short break in the delightful island with a service at Yachthaven Marine......

Who would take it on? I understand that one of the reasons Shaun gave it up was Suzuki shafting it's own dealers (excuse the pun) ie the dealer gives all the service to prospective customers, who then find the same kit on the internet direct from Suzuki at the same price the dealers pay for it !!!!!!!!! what is the point?

point taken fred

maybe it's about time to ask out-board manufacturers
some searching questions about after sales service
before we part with the equivalent cost of a small
family car for one of their shiny new engines
