John, welcome aboard! I used to work in New London and have done a lot of kayaking in northeast CT--the Shetucket, Willamantic, Quinnebaug and the Natchaug. There's an excellent Alfa mechanic in Warwick, RI. His name is Jim Byrne and he runs Dublin Motorcar Co., (401) 739-2727. He's a certified European Masters Technician. I had a waterpump replaced there on a Spider (a nasty job, because there's no room to work) and the price was competitive.
