Dumb question here but...are you sure they knew that you were one of theirs?
Not dumb...but funny. Yes they know who I am and that I am a year round customer.
Well I share details about what caused my dilemma and my experienced (or lack of) was questioned. I was just being a bit defensive.
Experience or not, things happen and it appears some were sidetracked from your initial post being about the marina and not how lead to that.
What you did quickly pulling back the throttle is not a wrong thing to do and should not have locked it in forward. With racing offshore powerboats that is done all the time, being constantly in and out of the water. Reversing loads on the cone clutches are far more drastic it the racing situation. It's possible the drive may have overheated on you, be low on lube or have water in it? Curious to hear what the mechanics say happened.
Best of luck with getting back in for the Holiday!
I totally agree with both of you. Having been at a MarineMax marina for many years I have always got first class service. A haul out for a boat with an IO can be done with a forklift in minutes, with the most time taken in blocking the boat up on the hard deck. I don’t think you expectations for better service are unreasonable at all. Good luck.
I don't blame you!!
Thanks KC- got new (but used) drive installed and it shifts beautifully. I have the old drive at my Merc shop. We will see what the prognosis. As of now, I should be back on the water for the holiday...provided I didn't botch the install. I feel comfortable that I did everything right but am still paranoid that I missed something. I don't choose to be a DYI'er but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.
