In our case we learned a hard lesson, 2 years, 2 months, and $15,000.00 later we have a pile of parts. The engine dropped a valve at 24 hours and then completely failed at 240 hours. Each failure required removal from the vessel and a trip to his shop followed by weeks of trying to reach him. After 3 more months of trying to resolve the 240 hour failure( I finally just showed up at his shop) , Ron would only agree to cover labor, and not the thousands of dollars in damaged parts. He claimed leaky injectors caused the catastrophic failure even though he said he would have them checked and reconditioned if necessary, that never happened and now he denies having said that (nothing in writing). They will not stand behind their work, they will not give you anything in writing, and they will not return any communications after the check clears. Be warned.

This is the worst shop I've ever dealt with. Ron will never return your phone calls. They screwed up a $1200 cylinder head of mine. I gave it back to them to fix. Then they claimed to have "lost" it. I've been bugging them for a year trying to get it back. Still nothing. Far as I'm concerned they stole it from me and stole my hard earned money also. Everytime I've ever talked to Ron he has been drinking. Don't do business with these crooks!
Did a job when no one else could.
