I’m having some issues with my 200EFI and need a reputable mechanic to look at it. I have used Rockwall Marine for 20+ years and they have always done a excellent job. The problem is that they are 6 weeks out before they will even look at it. I need my boat a lot sooner than that. I’m asking for and looking for names of other Mercury mechanics in the dfw area that I can check into about getting it repaired sooner.
Thanks in advance!!

Just got work done at Hughes Marine in Wylie. Gary had it done quick and reasonably priced. I have a Yamaha but sure he does Mercs.

Man I’m guessing this might not be happening right now. Let me say thanks for the references. Everyone of them I spoke with today is 3 - 5 weeks out. Thanks again !!

Going through the same issue. Called Plano Marine and Rockwall Marine earlier this week. Both of them told me the same thing, 6+ weeks. Got on the waiting list at Rockwall.

What he said! Matt rebuilt my efi trim system for dirt cheap when a well known shop recommended it needed to be replaced for $1600. He’s also looked at the same motor for other issues with a quick turnaround.
