Recently I purchased 2 X 90 hp Tohatsu outboards in Brisbane
The motors are fine, but the service
from the Local dealer and the Australian distributors has been far less than ideal.
My boat is a Non planeing (fast displacement) which was fully explained before purchase
, (they visited the boat).
With the Standard prop's I could only get a max 3,000 rpm
, I asked for a finer pitch
prop 14X11 which they supplied, which gives me 4,500rpm.
However the motors should have a max rpm
Apparently, Tohatsu only have two size prop's available in this range, both sourced from Mercury
and both are only suitable for planning boats
The Tohatsu dealer and the Australian distributor have therefore refused to supply me with the required prop's 14 X 9 (available from Mercury) and they have also told me that if i use the current
props 14X11 I will veto my warranty.??
Two new props will cost me an extra $600.00
Is there anything I can do.
