Default Need recommendations for a Yamaha mechanic

I have a 1993 Yamaha 200 hp 2 stroke main engine that appears to be putting too much oil into the oil/fuel mixture causing it to not only smoke excessively at start up but also causes poor idling at low speed. Looking for recommendations from fellow ifishers for a local Yamaha mechanic in the Vancouver / Portland area to address this problem. Thanks in advance for any responses.

I'd like to hear the responses. Clemens doesn't sound like my idea of a good partner.

I personally have been seeing a problem develop over the past 5 years. Several boat manufacturers are having great success selling boats in the Northern Oregon and SW WA. That is a good thing, I am happy for them. The problem arises when there is not a sufficient service infrastructure to service all of the motors on these boats.. I am sure that I am not alone in my frustration in this topic. Good luck getting a motor repaired in short order in PDX area between the months of May and Sept. Many of us do most of the simple maintenance items ourselves, but when it comes to a complicated repair I feel better having a trained tech do the job. I am guessing that some folks (like me) have found a small shop that can get the job done with a reasonable wait, but would not post that info on here as if said shop got a lot more business all of the sudden, the wait for repairs would grow significantly.. Not sure what my point is just venting I guess.
