    Thanks, guys.

    And tips to more would be welcome, if there are any.

    Just going by MAN's website, one that popped up and surprised me is Galati in Anna Maria. Also, Gulf Coast Diesel in Punta Gorda, which is Marine Diesel Specialists, which Capt J mentioned. They would be my first choice. I do know their Fort Lauderdale location is highly regarded.

    Thanks, that's the first way I searched and the Galati link surprised me too. But then when asked, Mike G. told me they don't do surveys.

    Gulf Coast Diesel is indeed looking like a good option; not sure why I didn't see that when I was first on the MAN website...

    In the recent past Galati’s is only doing work on boats they have sold. So at the last I checked they were not working on “outside” boats. I understand that their work is very good but expensive. Which usually goes together.

    Just a follow-up, for others' benefit...

    Gulf Coast Diesel has been very, very helpful... instructing, surveying, and now beginning some repairs and some extensive catch-up maintenance after getting the boat moved to Ft. Myers.

    I very much appreciate the earlier leads here pointing to them...

    Cheers, -Chris
