Texas Boat World is a little up the way from you but they do good work. If it’s a Yamaha buy the 100 hour kit online and I will walk you through everything you need to do it if you’ve never done it.

I use Texas Boat world too. Little bit of a drive but it’s not that big of a deal.

You might check out Parker Marine, I believe they are the same owners as Boerne Marine.

I've used Parker several times and really like those guys. But...they quoted 4 hours labor to do this job. $500 to do that stuff just seems pretty excessive. I'm not a big DYI guy and usually will let someone who does it on a daily basis handle it. I can change the oil in my truck, but for 8 quarts of full synth and a filter at $59.95 I'd be saving about $6.00 for a half hours worth of work! I'll do that trade! $500 for this? Not so sure. I'll give TBW a shout and ask what they charge. Thanks!

Lol, at the pre-edit! cheers


It appears that most shops are $100+ per hour now, fricking hobby’s getting too expensive.

$500 for a 100 hour service is about right from a dealer. A shade tree mechanic would do it for a little over half.
I, like you would like it done for less. I have a couple trusted mechanics who work on Mercury engines up here that can do it, read the computer and I have confidence in.
Good luck with your search.

Kenny Klein at Klein marine in G-town is the ONLY person I trust with my '93 Skeeter. He's honest (brutally sometimes), fair and easy to deal with. ALso usualyl pretty quick.


I didn't lose him at the boat. I shook him off cause I didn't want my hands to get "fishy"
