I need some work done (other than normal servicing) on a Yanmar engine in the Firth of Clyde area. Does anyone have any recommendations.

Thanks

Has Sandy at Troon finally retired?
Pretty sure there is a Yanmar agent at Kip

From what I'm hearing about the bloke in Dumbarton, don't go there.

I haven't been to Troon for a while but had heard that Sandy has retired. Will maybe take a run down there.

Kip Marina are Yanmar agents and I know that they employ 2 Yanmar mechanics.

Yes, Sandy has finished, and I think he gave his spanner to West Coast Marine Services. try a call to 01292 318121 to see if they're Yanmar-initiated.

I spoke to him over a year ago and he was looking for someone to take over or buy the business from him, He must have been struggling as he asked if I would like to buy it.
I was surprised when he told me he hadn't trained as an engineer but came from a farming background....might explain a few things :roll:
