Boat Repair & Maintenance Questions Answered By A Qualified Marine Mechanic

Those of us who work on our own boats take a lot of pride in our work. There is a huge sense of accomplishment when you do the job yourself. Plus, when you are your own mechanic, you also know any boat repairs or maintenance work is done right because you've done it yourself.

Every now and then, however, even the best backyard boat mechanic can use some help or advice from a qualified pro. That's where Tim comes in!

As an American Boating Association (ABA) member, you get full access to Tim Harrington's answers to maintenance questions. What's that weird noise? Why is your outdrive leaking oil? Is that water in your gas tank or some type of serious problem? Tim has the answers.
