Need Etec Repair

I ran into an overheating problem on my Etec yesterday. I always take it to Acies, but when I called I was told it was a 5 or 6 weeks wait just to have it looked at. This is the same thing I was told a year or so ago when I needed to take it in. Don't get me wrong, I like and trust Acies and he has always done me right, but waiting 5 weeks to get back on the water is ridiculous. I re-powered my Shoalwater CAT at Acies a few years back, so I am not a new customer. Looking for other options within a reasonable drive from Alvin. Does anyone have any suggestions? Fishing is great and I want to get back on the water!!! Thanks in advance.

Dockside Marine in LaMarque, I just had him fix a wiring issue, I took it to him and he had it fixed the same day. He's a no nonsense crusty guy but good with Evinrude products. Support the little guy. Right off I45.

Boatwerx does good work.
And they are closer than Redwing.
But Redwing has been an Evinrude dealer a long time. And Ronnie knows Evinrudes.

tarpon ??

year and size of your motor? i've got the etec troubleshoot software for what it's worth, I'm running an 07' 175 G1. i'm not a mechanic and have just enough information to be dangerous. when was the last time the impeller was replaced?? that's a job that can be done at home.

Thanks for all the advice

Thanks for everyone that replied. I took it to Boat Worx as the first responder recommended. Gary (Service Mgr.) was very welcoming and made me feel like he really wanted my business. Got it there on Friday and he just called that it is ready to go. Turns out the oil pressure sensor was bad, not an overheating problem. To the fella that mentioned Dockside, I am glad to read your post. I go there for oil and stuff, but when I called him Friday I couldn't get a clear feeling if I should bring the boat in or not. He is crusty, but given your recommendation I may try him in the future if Boat Worx doesn't work out for some reason. For now, I will take my non-warranty stuff to Boat Worx.
