Now that you mention it I remember hearing about real early bravo's that ARE different. My point was all the brands of these lowers offered out there fit all the bravos most of us are dealing with,they are not brand specific -ie-imco only fitting imco,etc,Smitty

I am mostly a lurker,but i have to chime in here. Why does fred at trick marine have to chime in on someone elses thread and start showing his ass. if wants to sell lower units then start your own thread. dont come in and start trying to undersell someone else if you think you have a better product at a better price then make a thread! It shows you have no loyality to any manufacture all you want to do is whore product i think alot of manufactures will wise up to your partices. I doesn,t take much of a bussiness man to give products away those who do dont last long. All of sudden you find your self with alot of friends and an empty bank account.Sorry for the rant but i see fred do this all the time on other threads if you have a good deal on a product, great dont wait for someone else to post a deal then you go in there and give the farm away.sell your self and products whores are fun for only so long then they get on your dam nerves no matter how good the snapper is!

Strange post Carreraboat. I'm actually looking for -2 shorties and I am very interested in comparing prices. I was hoping more dealers would come on here and turn it into a bidding war. Maybe you have enough money you can afford to pay full price for everything. Not me. Thanks for the price info Fred.

I've found the best prices so far at CP Performance.

Fred can you get these?

Carrerboat you might want to reread this first post that started the thread, pay close to the question "Fred can you get these" It's just a hunch on my part but I would venture to guess that is why Fred aka To Old aka Trick Marine chimed in.

For those of us with transom mounted water pickups, are any of these lowers available without a water pickup?

Yeah you are right the tone of the thread went sour, but I think Fred is not the one to bash.

I am a sales person and like most I don't love or endorse everthing I sell, sometimes I just get the customer what they want at the best price I can sell it to them for. That's all that Fred is doing and that's what he was asked to do, so why bash him for that (not you Carreraboat).

In hindsight these kinds of threads while well intended are not always a good idea. Often more than one member sells the same product and then they wind up being pitted against each other Perhaps a better way to handle it is for the interested sellers to contact the thread starter.
