Jim is also very good, but you'll pay more in expenses to bring him here unless he has another job to share costs
Another good local guy is Alasdair Salmon 01631 740358.
Agreed. I think I've used all three over the years. I think each has their own 'interest', or special area of expertise, so it might be worth a chat with all three before engaging one. I think they're all very busy though.
Might be worth letting Martin Evans or Maitland Black at the Yacht Centre here (see AYC's about us page) take a look too.
I'm assuming that Humber haven't got back to you, which I find surprising and disappointing, having championed them for years. They're doing themselves no favours at all. Hope you get sorted soon.
