View Full Version : Yamaha Mechanic recommendation in the Westport area?

Can anyone recommend, an honest, competent, and reasonably priced (ok, I'll take two out of three) Yamaha OB mechanic / shop in the Westport area? I do the small stuff, but I want to have a place in mind as I'm fast approaching 700 hours.

I use Don's Marine in Tiverton, his head mechanic Dave keeps us going no issues. Doubt it is the least expensive choice, but I have used him for 15+ years and continue to be happy with service etc. There are others in area as well- I have no current knowledge regarding their services.

Second that. I haul the boat down from Boston to RI when I need service. They have been great to work with.

Another area Yamaha mechanic is Peter from Bayside Marine on Horseneck Road

I use Wamsley Marine in Warren RI. 401-245-9069 ask for Joe. They were recommended by Yamaha owners at the marina where I keep my boat. Did a great job on my OX 66 225's.

Ditto on Peter Oleson at Bayside. I bought an 8 hp from him this spring and he was reasonable, responsive and very dialed into making sure I did things like run the engine dry of gas after every outing, due to ethanol in the carburetors. He's also a hell of a fisherman.
