Yanmar Mechanic St Petersburg

Looking for recs for general maintenance on my Yanmars (twin 4LHA-STP). Boat located in St Petersburg (Pass-a-Grille). Can't find time to do the maintenance that I like to keep up with, time to pay someone to take care of the little stuff so I don't start letting it slip. Obviously for minor items I don't necessarily care if they specialize with Yanmars (but if I develop a relationship and something major goes it would be nice for them to be the go to guy for the repairs). Anybody have good or bad experiences with any of the local guys?

If Bayview's contact doesn't work out, try Mastry Engine in St. Pete for a recommendation. The are the Yanmar engine distributor, and supplied the engines on your boat.
