I will test it out this weekend and report back. I think some of the reasons why people think boats are so expensive to repair/maintain is based on the people that drop them off to a shop to have the work done. I probably have 12 hours or so in "diagnosing" this thing. At $85 an hour, that's roughly $1,000. I guess I am paying my left pocket from my right pocket that much this week
It's frustrating yes, but at the same point I am getting a whole education into the way these auto motors are adapted to boats. If this problem was in a Corvette, I am sure it could have been fixed much faster as I have a road right in front of my house to test drive on.

I don't live in Caribou, that's practically Canada! I am down near Portland. It is currently 35 outside and supposed to be in the mid 40's today. Slightly chilly, but I may be on the water this evening for another quick test run.
