What do you mean "not interested"? Are they covered up with work? Did you make them mad? I know very few businesses that turn down work without a good reason. Just to be able to sell those high-dollar Volvo parts should get their attention.

Are they an authorized Volvo Penta service center? If not, you should look up the nearest shop and take the boat there. Get on Google and find an authorized shop.

Don't give up.

Bummer, where did you take it??? I am sure that one of the dealers in town want your business. I have heard that one of the dealers in corpus wont do any service on your boat unless you bought it from them. try another..
