So if you've seen any of my other posts, I'm sure you can put together, I have a lemon. So the most recent problem is that the transmission blew (probably clutch plates or oil pump). What I'm thinking though is that this has something (or everything) to do with last year's problem when the oil pan went through a bolt on a tracking fin. I'm thinking that the engine alignment isn't right, after all, a boat with under 400 hours shouldn't have to have the transmission rebuilt. The thing is that the people at the shop, when they put the engine back in after the oil pan fiasco assure me that things were aligned right at the coupling. The engine still sits so low that the brass clamp on the hose coming out of the oil pan is digging into the hull. Any ideas as to how to realign things right so that maybe we might be able to get out of this mess before I end up on the streets?
