I have a friend 45 min from there he doesnt know boats that well but he is a motorcycle mechanic and knows engines really well. I am form that area and we grew up together. Its not ideal but if you get no other leads let me know.
Mason, you may want to find a local dealer that will inspect the boat for you. Most dealers will offer this service as well as manage shipping for a fee. IMHO a dealer is a much better resource in this matter.
