Default Outboard Mechanic Needed

Hoping someone can give a referral for an honest marine mechanic. I bought a used 86 Mercury 20HP two stroke engine which was in great condition and ran like a gem the first time I took it out. Now I have no spark to my coil. My friend who is an electrician tested it out and could not figure out why I am not getting spark (marine engines is not his specialty). I've tried a few mechanics and seems nobody wants to work on an engine that old. I live in Northern NJ so if someone knows of a reputable mechanic that won't raped me I would appreciate a referral. Thanks

He is by us (sea tow) inside Bakers Marina at the end of Atlantic Street in the Highlands. A great guy and a very good mechanic.
