Mechanic for Hydraulics in SF Bay Area?

Hi,

I need to find a mechanic to work on my hydraulic bow thruster. As I've reported before, it's behaving intermittently. Can anyone recommend a mechanic to work on high pressure hydraulics in the SF Bay Area? My boat's in Redwood City, CA.

Thanks in advance

Richard

These guys may be into bigger systems than your windlass, but I suspect that is the nature with marine hydraulics. They have a shop in Hayward: Palmer Johnson Power Systems - San Francisco

Also if you have a commercial fishing dock in your area, go down and talk to the guys there and see who they use. Almost all commercial fishing boats have extensive hydraulics.

No. But Palmer Johnson is a respected big boat repair supplier.
