Thanks for the info Jim. I am done with them forever. I only went to them originally a few years back because me father used them for about 25 years. They killed two motors on him over the years. About 20 years ago, he had an early 70's, 24 foot I/O Formula runabout. They overheated his Marine
on the trip picking up the boat from his dock
and bringing it to the marina for fall storage
. The knew (or should have known) the motor
was shot, but they winterized it anyway and even put a new starter in it in the spring attempting to get it to run. When they finally admitted the motor was ruined, they sold him another used boat
, and after the deal, they gave him a bill for winterizing a toasted motor, plus the new starter. A few years later, they burnt up the Mercury
on his Robalo under the same circumstances. Again, they charged him to winterize a dead motor that was getting junked. He is alot more tolerant of getting ripped off than I am. When I picked up my boat from them at the beginning of last season, and the first time i took it out i had a loud knock that i didnt have that prior November when i left it off to them, i decided enough was enough. That saga can be followed on this site somewhere. I am too aggravated now, thinking about all this, to look for the link.
