Yamaha rant any factory reps around.
To make a short story long, I bought a new salt water series 150 in Feb. of 98. After just a few short years, on a trip down to Flamingo (180 mi. roundtrip) the darn motor wouldn't start. The mosquitos were so thick, I barely had time to get the boat back on the trailer before being sucked dry. No way could you stand around and figure out what the problem was. Take it back to the dealer and it turns out to be the kill switch has rotted out. Here we are 10 years later. Take my little sweetie down to Flamingo for a liitle snapper fishing. Get to the ramp ju:huhst after sun up. Drop the boat in the water while staring down the buzzards. Guess what? The darn motor won't crank again. Mosquitos AND sandflies are both having a field day on us. Lucky to be able to get the boat back on the trailer while we still had a little blood left. (Had to stop at the hospital on the way home to get a transfusion.} Get home, and guess what rotted out again? another kill switch. At this point, I think Yamaha owes me big time. How many millonsdo you think I should ask for? Lots of luck Capt George the voice of experience
