    I have a Sea Ray that needs some basic work done:

    Sterndrive corrosion maintenance / painting
    Zinc replacement
    Battery replacement
    A few minor things here and there

    Is there a mechanic in Seattle you'd recommend?

    I am already aware of Lake Union Sea Ray and am looking for any alternatives that people may have to recommend.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    I've been using CSR Marine in Ballard. No complaints and they have demonstrated themselves as an efficient boatyard. They are also adjacent to Hatton Marine which also does quality work....although they specialize in diesel and is also where I sources many of my cummins parts from.

    CSR, Gallery Marine, or Dunato's. All do great work.

    As a follow-up: I have been working with Gallery Marine for the past year since my original post and they have indeed been great to work with. Very flexible, communicative, and committed to getting it right.

    Thanks to all the great folks at Gallery Marine.

    If your interested in coming south to save some money I'd recommend Modutech Marine on the Hylebos Waterway, they are very reasonable in fact nobody can match their haul out price. Last April they did bottom & drive paint, bellows, u-joint, gimbal bearing for us no problems with the work or scheduling, I'm also moored there contact Darrin for a quote great guy to work with.

    I've been very happy with Rob from BlueSky Marine. He's based in Anacortes, but comes to Seattle regularly.

    For those with Zeus pod drives in the Seattle area - are there any alternatives to Lake Union Sea Ray? I've finally reached my limit with them.

    You might want to give Tacoma Diesel a call their an authorized repair facility for Zeus Cummins, I don't have any experience with them several folks I know speak highly of their work.

    Try Hatton marine in Seattle. Or, I have had great experiences with Tri County Marine in Bellingham.

    Hey, j98052, In need of a good mechanic in Anacortes for my 2000 340 DA. could be head gasket, manifolds, exhaust risers. what type of work did Rob from BlueSky Marine do for you, if you don't mind saying? I see you are a diesel guy . . . I'm not.
