We had issues with the diesel engine on our yacht, and it needed the attention of someone with more knowledge and experience than I have. Mesha was recommended to us as being a capable who works for a reasonable price.
We are very grateful for the choice. To access our yacht is a fair undertaking, involving access from the road end to beach via a steep track, then a kilometre or so by boat to the mooring. The engine is in a confined space, making any work challenging. We anticipated a minor repair, but the work turned out to be lengthy and involved sourcing many parts for our old Bukh 10. We were able to leave the repair entirely in Mesha's hands and return to the South Island.
Mesha has done an excellent job, not just repairing the engine but replacing many worn parts and servicing it in difficult circumstances. I am happy to recommend him to anyone needing a competent, conscientious, reasonably priced . Mesha has become a friend, and I look forward to seeing him in less trying circumstances than attempting to swing a spanner in the confines of a very small yacht.
Cheers, bryan tuffnell
