Piper boat service and maintenance - great (English) marine engineer in France
Stu has always done Calliope's annual engine service but this year wanted the confidence that he is doing it right. We have just had a great experience with full service and answer to one or two other niggly problems from a barge owner who has had 34 years as a Royal Navy Marine Engineer - trained, qualified, time-served. If anyone would like his details to find out if he can help with servicing, maintenance, winterising, electrical problems etc drop me a line.
He mostly lives on his barge in France, but also spend time in the UK if that is of interest to anyone. He brings all his own tools, and is reasonably priced.
(I am telling you all in case it helps anyone; I am not earning commission or anything from this!)
Re: Piper boat service and maintenance - great (English) marine engineer in France
Currently marooned just above lock 4 on the Marne at Barage de Courcelles due to gearbox failure. Not getting any joy from French mechanic who took the unserviceable unit out nearly 4 weeks ago.
I have ordered a brand new unit and just need someone to install it. How is your man Stu placed? Do you have contact details?
