JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The marine mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else important you think the marine mechanic should know? I'm trying to find the right marine mechanic for you right now. As soon as they are ready, I will let you know.
Customer: ok
JA: What else should I tell the marine mechanic?
