I vote, not a lemon, part of being a boater, when I pull away from the house for a day of fun it is about $150 on fuel and food etc.

The impellors, belts and STUFF, and very often fluid changes add up....
Last year we blew 3 drives and other stuff....
This year so far so good.

The B. O. A. T. comment is SOOOO true....
We should post a thread for WHO HAS BEEN TOWED IN THIS YEAR.
It would be like putting a hot chick pic up replies wise...

Good luck to you, your in the club.
Keep us posted, LOTS of FREE GREAT ADVICE here on OSO.

Welcome Indy - Doesn't sound like a lemon to me. Just a B-O-A-T!

Bryan - I, for one, haven't been towed in yet this year. But of course I do have two motors and several times I've idled back in on one motor.

So see, for the mere price of a second motor, drive, rigging, fuel, maintenance, etc. you can almost, I say almost, forget about the tow rope!!!!

Ouch, Matty!!!!!!! Thanks for the visual. It does seem more appropriate, if I have to go to the wrench's place and get out with only a thousand, I think I've gotten away unscathed.

Well I'll tell you guys one thing, you sure know how to make a fella feel better. Telling boating stories does it everytime. I did learn one thing. Make sure you have a good, Long Towrope. I can't imagine having 2 engines, twice the problems, But TWICE the HP. I guess there is always someone to put things in perspective. Was talking to my buddies dad. He had a 46ft Sea Ray on Lake Erie, hit a reef of some sort. Sunk the boat in about 45 min. They had to be air lifted out. Thats putting this in perspective. Thank God for Insurance, now they've got a 50fter. Its a beaty, but Slow. Thanks Guys
