|I'm in need of a mechanic to work on my 1992 Nautique. I took it out Saturday and it developed a knocking noise with a loss of power. I'm thinking it is a problem with the valves due to the frequency of the knocking and exhaust symptoms. I removed the valve covers and they seem to be rocking OK when I crank the motor. So, now it's time to take it to someone that knows what they are doing. Any recommendations for a mechanic in the Delta area would be great.|
|Take it to West coast correct craft in Rancho Cordova. Those guys are good and they know what they're doing.|
|Thanks Tom, |
Anyone bring their boat to Larson Marine in Stockton?
I know that Larsons is a very reputable company and has been around for a very long time and I dont you would go wrong by taking your boat there. They have always treated me right and prompt. Good luck
|Thanks Jay, |
I'm going to wait a couple of days to make my decision on where to take it. I just want quality work in a good time-frame.
|Mastercraft Dealer vs. Independent shop. I have a Mastercraft 97 Maristar that we got last year and keep at a local marina in the delta. They are a Fountain dealer, do a lot of offshore racing and do great work. I want a yearly tune up. What is a dealer going to offer that a good local shop can't. As I understand it if I change the fluids, wires, plugs, adjust the stuffing box, etc that that's about it. Any comments. Thanks.|
|See Billy at Bethel Harbor. They do all kinds of major work. Friendly people and seem to care about your needs. (925) 684-2141|
|Rod,any chance you got a side pic with the bimini up?I'm considering Monster,with a bimini.What size did you get?New pic looks good. |
Sorry it's off topic.
On topic,I no longer take mine to a dealership.They could never get it right.I take mine to Santa Rosa Boat Center,he's a little gruff,but does a great job,for cheaper.
|This is all have Rich. I got the large Bimini. I was in between and had to squeeze the large in. Monster has been great to me. Good Luck. |
Mike, I have a soft appt. w/ Larsons tomorrow but will call Billy 1st to see if he's busy. Thanks.
|I've boarded several times w/ the owner/operator of Diablo Marine and Trailer in Martinez. |

|Thanks Levi, |
Too late, The story of my life! My boat is at Larson Marine now. I'm keeping my fingers crossed waiting for their call....
|Doh! I'll try to be more speedy next time! Man..if I wasn't moving away in a couple days I'd love to take a spin your boat...I've always been interested to see how those older nauty vdrives are for boarding. I've got a 1990 sport.|
|Anytime you're back in the Delta Area you're more then welcome! Good Luck in your new ventures.....|
