...I need your opinions/advice. As you all know from my annoying previous posts I'm having transmission problems. I replaced the transmission cooler and flushed and refilled the fluid. Well my boat is still slipping. It runs smooth for about an hour and then it will start slipping. So looks like I'm going to have to rebuild my transmission or buy a new one. What do you think I should do? First (cheapest but longest downtime) I found a place that has a repair kit for $260. I have two friends who think they can repair it (they've repaired transmissions before and they think this one will be easy b/c it's simple...just forward and reverse; no gears). Two (most expensive but quickest), or I can buy a new transmission with a warranty on it...rip out mine and throw the new one in. Three (middle on both respects) or I can take it to a transmission shop and have them repair it and maybe have a short warranty. What would you do?
