Diesel Don 256-259-7728

Many years ago I met Diesel Don. He had been recommended to a friend as a great diesel mechanic that would travel. As it turned out, we went along with my friend to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to pick up his recently purchased 53′ Hatteras. It was so wonderful to go on a yacht delivery with a person that knew a diesel engine inside and out. Not only that, but he was able to repair air conditioners, heads and many other systems on that boat.When we got to Ft. Lauderale, we took a little sea trial. It turned out that the starbord engine lost a fuel injector. When we got back to the pier, Don went down into the engine room and came out in a few minutes with the bad injector. Within a few hours we had a new one installed and were on our way home with the boat. I have come to the conclusion that Diesel Don is the most versitle mechanic within the North Alabama area. He brings his 44′ trailor/shop with him and spends a week at a marina working on boats. In is trailor/shop he has parts cleaners, hose makers, filters, oil and everything that he needs to repair boats. If there is something that he does not have he has a resource to get it usually within 24 hrs. He is also proficient at repairing gasoline engines. If you are on a trip, he will travel reasonable distances to take care of your issue. Last summer, he went to Vicksburg, Mississippi to install a new transmission for Jim Longshore in his 44′ Carver. There is nothing more comforting then knowing who is doing the emergency repairs on your boat. Diesel Don also specializes in pre-purchase mechanical engine surveys, including engine oil analysis. This survey gives the buyer confidence that nothing major is wrong with the engine. If you need boat repairs, Diesel Don is the man for the job. You can contact him at 256-259-7728 on his cell phone.
