    OK, it's time for a new zipper in my drysuit. It's an Andy's. Any recommendations for a shop that does this? I'm guessing that Portland shops all send the suits out. Let me know if I'm wrong!

    Thanks!

    I've had a YKK zipper to be replaced by Superior Drysuit Repair as well as dry gloves installed. Had to send the dry suit back as my drysuit leaked due to insufficient dry time apparently before shipping back. I can post next week when I get it back. Hope this does the trick.

    Eugene Skin Diver's Supply in, well- Eugene- does zipper replacements. All drysuit work they've done for me over the years has been top notch (as has all other work, for that matter). I'd give them a call and see if they can work on your suit. My preference for that big of a job would be to drive a couple of hours and look the dude in the eye that's going to be doing the work for you rather than ship it off someplace.
