  1. Thanks for the heads up mate, would like to get it done but $1600 scared me away. Will definitely look it up, also my one works sometimes so the motor has got bit of life in her cheers mate Sent from my GT-I9197 using Tapatalk
  2. Yeah mate mechanic told me $900 for the part (not new) and "around" $700 for labour so I think it's alot cheaper to use my arms atm!Sent from my GT-I9197 using Tapatalk
  3. Hi mate, hope all is well, I have the same issue with my 2 stroke yamaha sometimes it works sometimes just click click click and nothing else I had a mechanic check it out we tested the relay, battery, wiring wich was all good so he said it was my tilt motor if you gently tap on the tilt trim motor should work for about 30 seconds (if you have the same problem as me) good luck mate hope you fix soon I got quoted $1600 for the tilt trim motor and labour.

  4. Hey mate definitely worth insurance my boats only worth $4000 but I have full insurance on it always good to no your covered and if God forbid your ever in an accident your $7000 won't be going down the drain gluck with the boat mate Sent from my GT-I9197 using Tapatalk
  5. Hey mate, I'm also new to boating well (2 months experience) best thing to do is go late at night when nobody's there and just launch and retrieve 2-3 times I'm still not the best but getting a it better I have a 16ft half cabin I seen a few people driving it on the trailer so I tried that and failed big time lol so now I just manually do it all but try and go when there's no body there because some "experienced boaters" will make you feel like your an idiot and don't have the patience ( not all but the few Iv seen) Iv hit the boat around 35 times on the pontoon now and last week nearly ended up on the pontoon but it's ok you will learn from your mistakes good luck I'm going out tonight hopefully it's not a struggle!

  13. Hi Fabian hope all is well, thank you for detailed response I think it's better for me to do it with a mechanic as I don't have the experience yet is there a way I could find the sponsored mechanics on here? Sent from my GT-I9197 using Tapatalk
