Default and So It Continues

Do you ever get the feeling that someone is telling you to GET OUT? more issues..First I didn't get the motors back till 1 week before my marina closed. I got the motors dressed and installed the day the Marina closed,a half hour before he locked the gate!.. Went to Whiskey Island, Paid the rack for the full year, They left it in the water for three days and gouged the graffics on the starboard side. First launch, I fire them up check bilge and see the starboard motor leaking oil from the block adapter and the new oil cooler leaking water from the head.. , Tear down and and make repairs) WEENINE RUN WEEKEND next weekend launch fire them leaks !! (PIRATES RUN WEEKEND ) Head out, get outside breakwall, port motor running hotter than normal,, 180, usually 150, head back tear down, check sea water punp and all hoses, pull T -stat, Head out today...Starboard fires fine..warming up theN "POP" Oil LINE from the block adapter to the remote oil filter, Shut that one down (OEM equip, should I use 10n hose and fittings?) Fire Port ...or try to fire..starter cranks twice then free wheels...out oh.. pull starter , (not even a year old,) the nose shaft support cracked in half ?.. pull starboard starter ,install on port motor, fire it up.. starts fine, check bilge ... WATER LEAKING FROM LOOSE HEAD BOLTS !!! WTF ?????? I'M ABOUT AT MY WITTS END !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11111

Well that sucks, but looking at that list most of it is just bad luck except the head bolts.

I have a similar list but over a couple of seasons, hang in there it will get better.

My power steering pump seized and blew they cap off a weeks ago leaving about a quart of hot hydraulic oil everywhere. Went and ordered a higher performance one last monday with the promise it would be shipped that day. Needless to say I didn't get it, so Friday I borrowed one and installed that. It threw the belt off every time I ran over 4k.

Full hydraulic steering with two rams sucks without the pump
