Small boat repairs and maintenance recommendations

 Hey there fishwreckers,

just wondering if anyone has any recommendationss for people/ compaies that do repairs and maintenance on small boats. I have a 5.8 meter Genesis Craft that desperately needs some tlc with a few small  issues. (New seat swivels anchor winch repair/ replace, new stereo speakers etc ).

unfortunately I have found no companies that are interested in understanding these small fiddly jobs and I lack both the time and the skill to do it myself. 

Cheers in advance!

 I had All Boats do little bits of minor work to my old tub. They fit out new boats, so I don't think it'll be an issue.

 They probably don't want to do it as they aren't money making jobs and if it's an older boat they might be concerned about what else they find.

If you get stuck and want a no warranty job I'm happy to help out but it's not what I do for a living. It is all stuff I've done on my own boats.

If you want a warranty job and can't find anyone down there then give allboats a call. I'm sure they'll help you but know how to charge.

 Shame I’m living 900 kms away these days I would have done it for you. Maybe it’s time for an upgrade . You know with the kids getting big and all . Maybe Troy will sell you a share in the Riviera ? ....
