Outboard Mechanic?

Anyone know a good mechanic that can replace my lower unit seals? I'm getting water in the lower unit and service manual says to replace the oil seals, I'm looking for good, honest and reasonable pricing. The motor is a 2001 Yamaha 80hp 4-stroke.

Thanks

Here's my follow up:

I've had the motor for a year and it runs great but about 3 weeks ago I hit something submerged and pushed the whole motor out of the water and stay up, after doing an inspection there was no visible damage so I put back in water and started it. The water pump was still pumping good water so I just let it run for a bit to make sure everything was ok. I went to go put in gear and it wouldn't budge. Long story short I took it to the dealer to get looked at and at the same time called insurance company because I hit something submerged so it should be covered. The dealer tore it apart and found out that all the gears in it are totally shot. Well because there is NO visible damage to the lower unit the insurance department denied my claim saying damage do to pinion gear failure. If I hit something that made the motor come out of the water (2 witnesses) would that break the pinion gear which in turn would totally ruin the all the gears and at the same time not leave a mark on it?

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
