Mechanic recommendation please
25 June, 2019 20:23
Hi all. I am new to the waterways having just bought an old Viking 22ft for use on the grand canal. I wonder if anybody can recommend a mechanic near Roberstown, Co Kildare as I have run into some engine trouble. I am sure it’s relatively simple problem but it isn’t the battery, fuel supply or starter motor.
Thanks in advance for your help

Does your boat have an outboard engine. If so most mechanics prefer to service these engines out of the water due to their position on the boat. Also if you can remove the engine remember to take the petrol tank and fuel hose with you for the service.
