SP 135 Mechanic Needed

Leaving Stuart FL tomorrow for a port engine only trip to Punta Gorda.

Can anyone recommend a mechanic experienced in SP-135 in the Punta Gorda/Ft Myers market? It's a serious problem. Likely a spun bearing.

If it is a spun bearing, that can cause more damage than can be fixed in the boat, especially if it is a main and not a rod bearing. Block saddle can be thrashed. Best to plan on having the engine pulled at a yard. Unless you want to do more diagnosis in the hole, but you may still end up pulling engine.

If you're going to pull the engine and rebuild, I'd maybe talk to Bomac Marine. They specialize in the rebuilding of Ford Lehmans.
