Thumbs up to Wayne Maddox Marine

Just wanted to say a public thanks and give a recommendation for Wayne based in Ramsgate. He fitted the engine to the 6.2m Osprey, and when I saw it yesterday it has been done really well. All the cables are fitted neatly, and all the routings have been done very well. Much better than was done originally on our boat!

And all this for a very reasonable price too. I have spent many hours on the phone to him over the past few months as I have been working on this boat and he has been very helpful and knowledgeable. He was flexible with his timings, and was very quick to get the work done in the end. Buying an engine blind through B&O can be dodgy but he was very reassuring and has certainly paid off in the end. It is a fantastic little boat and I will put some pictures up on the other threads when I have the camera back.

The only mention of him on here before appears to be from "Daniel" who also recommends him.

I think it's a different boat for a friend.
