What's the small print on these 1,2,3,4, & 5 yr warranties stipulate?? Anything to be concerned or wary of Syd? Or maybe (hopefully) there is none!

And .... If you do stumble on a a pair of Philly 5 and a qtrs ... remember me for those 496r's .... I'll take em ((both for $7995.00)) like these

The "Passport" warranty underwritten by Marine Innovations will only replace some major items once, from what I understand.

This is the premier extended warranty in the business.
FormulaGuard
Donzi Z-Care
ect.,ect.

They are probably underwriting Merc's Quicksilver extended warranty too, as this would be something that would be cost effective to farm-out to a third party.

Warranty...no matter how it's sliced...is insurance against lo$$ that somebody comes up with a risk factor for, in terms of dollars, and that we all pay for in some sense.

This is Mercury written Warranty; just extending what I have now. I will be as well covered as I am now. I had Passport before, and so did Docmanrich37, and while I never 'needed' it, Rich did, and said it was a horrible experience.

As for the 496HOs, I will drop them off in your garage njgr8ful; for $20K; each.

When we purchased our 2002 Baja 36 Outlaw new, Baja had a promotion that gave us a FREE 5 year extended warranty through PassPort.

Last year we had the port drive fail completely and totally lock up. They replaced the drive with a complete brand new one.

While boating on the coast this last weekend the starboard drive starting making a bad noise.

I pulled it off yesterday and carried it to the dealer along with my warranty papers and he said "no problem, we will take care of it for you". I have not heard back from him yet, but I'm confident they will take care of what ever needs to be done.

We believe there is a bad gear in the top end.

When is comes to auto's, trucks and boats, I think a warranty is a good thing!

I bought the 5 yr. extended, hoping never to need it and have 1 yr. left when selling. I think a used baot w/ even a little warranty is far more attractive than one w/o.

I agree, far more attractive on a re-sale of a used boat, no matter how short or long.

Bryan the check is in the mail ... need an address BTW .. Do they come w/ any warranty? Have fun!
