Just remember : nothing is illegal until you get caught .
If your in florida you can claim stand your ground . Those carp were coming after me officer .
Got a Volvo sx in a bryant at the shop , outdrive is stuck to drive helmet / per corrosion around the mounting studs . Had to pull everything off together . Needless to say that the bill just jumped astronomically .
Also scored my first pissed off customer for the season ...
Long time customer brought in a little skiff he just bought for a service and minor carburetor repair ...... 6 weeks ago ! Got everything fixed and went to change the gear lube and found it was full of water . Call , get the ok for a re-seal , everything was seized , so one of the main parts had to be shattered to remove.
No biggy , got the serial number off the motor '' 97 yamaha 25hp 4 stroke '' and ordered the parts . Well they had to come from the factory to my dealer then to me . Got everything in and got 99% of it put together and ....... its the wrong parts . After digging around I found the lower unit was off a much much newer motor , that happen to interchange but none of the parts would .
Still waiting for the right parts to get here and boy is the owner pissed .
But what do you do ? I already gave him everything at cost and killed off all the labor but im sure he will still talk $hit at the docks .
