I am not mechanical. I would like to hear your thoughts on the causes. I have the boat in the shop right now but would like to know what it sounds like to you before i get given a line, possibly.
#1 occasionally the motor wont trim down. it might the next time i try or after 5 or 6 tries. no logic. happens one in 15 times of trimming down.
#2 it acts like my battery is low or dead, this might happen one in 10 times. i try it again and it might start. usually after 3 tries it starts up like there was never a problem.
re #2, i checked the alternator and it seemed suspicious, rust on the side. i had it rebuilt and no difference. Threw away a perfectly good battery thinking it was that first.
so what do you think the shop will come back saying?
