I bought the boat in Oklahoma and they agreed to fix some fiberglass issues this winter so that's where I'm taking it back to. Coulters marine in panora is a Mastercraft dealership. I had my windshield replaced there. They seem to be very nice people. He did tell me though that they were going to stop selling mastercrafts. They sell Moomba or supra also and they said that they sell much more of those around here cause of the price difference. In Des Moines there is Dave's marine. They work on a lot of inboards and are certified indmar service techs. They are kinda pricey but they are suppose to be the best in Des Moines.

Thanks for info, I have talked to Coulter's a couple times and I service at Dave's and they are pricey. I wish we had a dealer closer to us.

Have a safe trip pulling back to dealer

It's not really a big deal to me because my hand is generally on the throttle at all times but it seems like it shouldn't be so loose. I remember my sear ray had a lot more resistance and wouldn't do it.
I have the same problem on a "new to me" X14V. Were you able to resolve this? I was just trying to save a trip back to the dealer.

Done...and I really couldn't believe that it was that easy. I almost feel like an idiot for even asking that question, but admittedly I had this nasty vision of linkage adjustments in my head!
