I am posting this for anybody that needs a honest reliable boat mechanic. He prefers to work on outboard motors but can work on any type.
I have been using Carl Atkins for the last 20 years or more. He knows outboard motors and can fix any trouble you have.
He lives in Haslet and works out of his shop. His number is 817-832-8637.
A friend of mine brought a used bassboat and took it to a dealer to work on. Well after taking it back the second time spending around $1000 or more and still
had the same problem. I called Carl to see if he could look at it. In 30 minutes Carl found the issues and ordered parts.
