Boat Service in Chesapeake? - MD or VA

Going to take our first trip south from NY.
Looking for recommendations for somewhere in the Chesapeake area for a reliable place to leave my boat for a week or so to service my Volvo diesels, Fisher Panda genset, troubleshoot slightly sticky throttles, maybe install a new charger and inverter as well as take care of some minor cosmetic issues (fiberglass and metal).

Plan on getting the service done while we go home to NY and then pick it up and take some short hops eventually winding up in Florida.

Who are your honest and reliable go-to places? I'm open to slightly further south or north as far as NJ too.

Just left the Zimmerman yard in Mobjac Bay. Good small yard. They also have a yard in Deltaville. Might also suggest using MRP Refits at Bert Jabins in Annapolis. They will line up all the subs and manage the job for you while you are away. Their fees are worth it, especially if you are off site.

Atlantic Yacht Basin is great for all that. Good folks to deal with and excellent location.
