Hey Pat, if you're available I'd highly suggest making a trip up here to NJ or having him pay for the trip and giving the new owner of the 37' a "going-over" on the boat and teach him how to drive it! I swung by his lift yesterday and both engines were overheating, he asked me if it was an "electrical" problem... YIKES... I told him water pumps go bad from not having the boat in the water far enough when you fire it up and he proceeded to tell me he had the engines running, dry, on the lift in the morning... Double YIKES!!

I was suggested and later asked to teach him how to drive the boat but due to liability I declined.

Great looking boat by the way!

He needs a day with a mechanic on the topic of "how everything works" (and doesn't work). And then he needs a mentor.

This kind of thing scares the crap out of me.

Final site should be on par with all new technologies.

Don't know why this thread was resurrected from last year, but that was a link used while the site was under construction.

I used to to this stuff for customers back in the day until I learned about liability issues.... It got to the point where every new customer wanted me to A) dock their boat for them or B) Take them and their 5-10 obnoxious friends out for a booze cruise.... So I don't "teach" anymore. I might be able to give him a few pointers over a few beers but I'm not taking anyone out to show how to run the boat, that's what a captains license is for!

If he was a friend, or if he becomes a friend I'd take care of it but I don't know the guy. For instance, last week I went out with my buddy Billy in his new-to-him Powerplay and we got her all dialed in in some 3-4's!
