Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Barcelona Amel Mechanic
When in Barcelona at Port Vell, I wanted to get the valve lash adjusted by a professional. In the past, I had done this job twice. I also wanted to buy a few Yanmar spares. My intention was to have a real pro put his eyes on the engine, after years of a semi-pro working on it (me). I thought maybe he might see something that I missed. I spoke to the area's recommended Yanmar mechanic.
The Yanmar guy is Eduardo Platero <eduardo@...>
I basically interviewed him and believed that he was a real pro. We scheduled the service and he agreed to deliver the parts at the time of service. The guy that showed up for the service was completely different and based on his age probably had no more than 2 years experience. So, the semi-pro (me) was his supervisor!
