“I have worked in the marine industry as a mechanical engineer for over 30 years. Garrett of Port Diesel has done work for me both professionally and on my own boat. I can say without question that he does outstanding work. Not only does he have the knowledge and skill to fix your vessel, he will fix it right and probably make it better. He is absolutely committed to taking care of the customer. Get it done right, get Port Diesel!”


– Richard Paarfus


“Port diesel is the only marine mechanic that we trust to keep our charter vessel running top notch. Garrett and his team are by far the best marine mechanics around. Garrett is not only a great mechanic, but he is knowledgeable in all aspects of boat systems. Garrett will quickly be able to diagnose any potential problems from the engine, transmission, fuel systems, and running gear. Port diesel will never waste your money on unnecessary fixes! A reliable and trustworthy marine mechanic is hard to come by, and we will only recommend Garrett. Our Cummins engines run better now than they ever have and it’s all thanks to Garrett and port diesel.”
