Ian Skoyles certainly knows his stuff, having been a marine engineer for many years. We rang him after he was recommended to us, as we had lost drive on our boat and it looked quite serious to us. Ian was very helpful and said he would come over later the same day, as soon as he had finished repairing a boat that he was working on. Very quickly he had diagnosed the problem which was due to a propshaft coupling which had come loose and needed putting back. Ian found the bolts underneath the engine and managed to put it all back together. It worked and we would be underway after testing. He found that engine mounts had come loose and this may have caused our breakdown. We had another problem with our interior lights which had stopped working and again he found the fault and repaired it. He gave us his business card and we were amazed at how many services he offered. We asked him how far he would travel if we needed him and he said he has travelled down to the River Thames and north to the Leeds and Liverpool canal to help customers. It is very reassuring that we have found a very good and conscientious engineer. We definitely will be using him again.
