The vocational-technical schools often will take on projects like that for assignments.   Typically you'll only have to pay for parts.  

You want cheap labor...... Doesn't get any cheaper than that.  And at least you'll know that some study/research was done to ensure the job is done correctly.

I have used the local vo-tec ag students a few times to rebuild trailers, build cattle feeders, etc.  But work on my boat?  Hmmm

Well he said work on the "boat".   Maybe he just needs a new bilge pump installed, got a anchor light out, stereo doesn't work, stuff like that.

true true. Still the thought of that doesnt ring true in my head. Maybe the local high school mechanic shop can help him with his needs.

We paid a bundle to have some engine work done at Lewis Boats a few years ago. It kind of stung at the time but after 6 years of flawless running it doesn't amount to a hill of beans.
