Fishing Boat Engines and Transmissions
Fishing season creates tremendous pressure to minimize downtime. Harsh marine conditions and remote locations add to the challenges of keeping engines running at peak performance. After working as a mechanic on an Alaskan crab boat Jim Porter founded Tacoma Diesel in 1969 to serve the unique and demanding needs of fishing boat operators. We are dedicated to providing quality, timely service to fishing boat operators.
