  1. I had the same problem last yr with the same boat. ( 2008 244). Turned out a small ground wire was not connected to the battery. Hooked up wire and blowers worked great! Check all battery connections.
  2. Nice looking boat, good luck with it!
  3. My brother has an F150 with the tailgate ladder and they told him abt this when he bought it. Told him always lock the tailgate. Of course if they really want it, they always find a way.
  4. Agree with White and stripe of your color choice. Much easier maintenance!!

Being an independent, I would think it would be more important to keep in touch with his customers. I would have to say, based on your experience, I would have already hauled it to the new guy to fix. Good Luck with your boat and the ultimate goal of having it repaired correctly.
  14. Best thing to do is get rid of mechanics like that. I have also had a few work on my boat that I refused to let them get near it again. The tough part is having to pay a good mechanic to fix the bad guys work. Been there and it is a hard pill to swallow. I think you are on the right path.
