Hey Chris Just wanted to let you know that our recently rebuilt Yamaha F225 is running like a top. It runs so smooth that it has given us the confidence to fish further offshore again. After seeing the damage that was done from the salt on the interior gasket seats, I will be seeing you again for the other engine later this year. Let’s call it preventative engine failure work. We are happy to be back on the water. Thank you for the expertise, professionalism, and reasonable rate. See you again soon. Tim Battishill
Chris rebuilt my Yamaha 225 and it runs like a top. Very impressed with Chris's knowledge and expertise. Saved me a ton of money and his customer service is outstanding. Will definitely use again. Thanks Chris! G. Stevens
I recently had two 225 four stroke Yamaha outboards rebuilt by Chris and was impressed by his knowledge, workmanship and his drive for perfection. My motors are running extremely well and have been very reliable with no issues. His follow up service has been excellent. I would definitely use him again and highly recommend him to anyone.

In June of 2009 Chris rebuilt for me a 1998 Yamaha 225 OX66 2 stroke outboard motor and 8 years later the motor is still running strong. Chris is the best Yamaha mechanic and rebuild guy in this area hands down!! If you want a rebuild that will stand the test of time then I would highly recommend Chris @ C&R for your next rebuild on 2 stroke or the newer 4 stroke engines that he has personally shown me in his shop. Chris thanks for all of the years of great service and excellent mechanical diagnosis on my boat and motor. I have been a loyal customer since 2008 and I will be a loyal customer for years to come.

There are not enough words to describe the TALENT that Chris has in rebuilding motors. He built a pair of 225 four strokes for me. My boat which is a 26 Sailfish Cruises at 35 Knots @ 3800 RPM and is burning ONLY 14 gallons an hour. If you want a rebuild DONE RIGHT the first time than contact Chris. You WILL NOT be sorry. You might have to wait a little bit but having him rebuild your engine is DEFINITELY worth the wait. ED T.
I cannot praise Chris's work enough, I was recommended to his services by co-workers who have had fantastic results as well and I am not disappointed in my end result in the slightest. I had options for my outboard (200hp OX66) rebuild. However I was told Chris was the most knowledgeable, thorough, and trust worthy mechanic in the area. I was told my rebuild would take months to do, and I was not expecting fast service as anyone knows quality takes time and patience. Chris is the first mechanic I can trust 100%, his attention to detail, is second to none. His progress pictures that he posts to keep you up to date is just another way he excelled in customer service. I sound as if I am rambling about how awesome the service was, is because it was everything I expected and some. If you are looking for a rebuild, do yourself a favor and go no where else. Premium white glove results at a reasonable price. Thank you Chris.....
