    Does anyone know of a good contact for servicing a mercury 60hp engine. The boat is in barnsley at the moment but can tow it a reasonable distance to get a good job done.
    cheers phil

    Theres a couple of folk I know that do them, one's ex lifeboat mechanic and the other is still a lifeboat mechanic, only thing is they're based up here, Is Bill Higham not closer to you?

    Hi Phil, if it’s just a service you Need then it’s a relatively easy job to complete yourself you can pick up the service kits online for your engine model/serial number. If not I can certainly say Bill higham is good have used him/them a few times.

    Like bri can only endorse lads he mentioned.

    If bringing boat up to whitby for season use someone local

    And you have personal touch.

    There's a guy in Chesterfield that myself and quite a few mates use, he works from home and always turns the engine around quite fast, with good attention to detail and at a reasonable price.
    He's called Gary and his number is 07766 542881
