So apparently Fairwinds won't even work on a Volvo-Penta any more. Any suggestions on a dealer/marina local to Annapolis that might want to take a look at mine?
Broke a belt this weekend (that Fairwinds installed last year), limped the boat in at a severely high temperature. At this point, I'm not sure how I'm getting her out of the sip.
Any suggestions would be helpful.

They used to have a good reputation for service, I haven't heard good or bad about them lately. They always seam to be working on some nice boats in their yard.

Not exactly Annapolis, but Ventnor marine on Bodkin Creek, Pasadena does good work. They are authorized Volvo Penta.

Are any of those mechanics mobile? I too have a volvo issue, but need a mobile who can go to Podickory Point.

did you get anywhere with it yet?

Nothing yet. I need to run up to the marina tonight to get the engine number (apparently there are several volvo 3.0's?) and then try and locate the belt.
I may be better off just loading it on the trailer and hauling it up to Absolute Marine for a once over.
