Broken in Portland

I have a customer with a crisis in Portland, Maine. His D2 front prop failed and judging by the puddle on the ground, has incurred transmission damage as well. Could be the pan has a hole, could be the case is cracked, but either way, he's far from home.
Any recommendations for independent service options up that way?
thanks,
Trevor

Not sure how close it is, but Matt Browne of Overland Engineering is in Elliot, Maine, and would be highly recommended by anyone that has met him or had work done by him

They don't always vibrate, but they will almost always chirp like a bird before detonation.

Sometimes there's no vibration; just a chirp that sounds more like a belt/pulley chirp.


edit: ^ what ZG said! ^

Thanks for the advice all! Geoff has decided to make arrangements to have it brought back to PA. He said the dealer was kind and corteous, offered a solution but couldn't get to it for a few weeks. He also spoke with Matt and he was even further out before he could get involved. I'm running about 3-4 months on project stuff myself, but if the customer is going to make the effort to tow it back to PA, I'll squeeze him in. Thanks again!
