 WE WENT OUT ON THE BOAT FOR A SHAKE DOWN CRUISE FOR 1 HOUR . AT THAT POINT THE GENERATOR WAS LEAKING COOLANT INTO THE PAN WHICH I DID NOT NOTICE UNTIL WE WERE BACK AT THE DOCK AND THE OWNER TOM HAD LEFT . HE WAS CALLED RIGHT AWAY ABOUT THE PROBLEM AND WAS NOT TOO CONCERNED ABOUT IT . MAYBE IT WAS RESIDUAL COOLANT FROM THE SERVICE. IT WAS NOT . WHAT WE ENDED UP WITH AFTER 2 HOURS OF RUNNING ON A 3 DAY DELIVERY (400 MILES) WAS A PORT ENGINE WITH ANOTHER HUGE COOLING LEAK , AND THE WORST PART A BAD EXHAUST LEAK THAT WAS NEVER THERE BEFORE . THE ENGINE ACTUALLY POLLUTED THE ENGINE ROOM SO BAD THAT IT CLOGGED UP THE AIR FILTERS WHICH I HAD TO GO INTO THE ENGINE ROOM FULL OF SMOKE AND RIP THEM OFF OF BOTH ENGINES. AFTER THAT I RAN WITH THE ENGINE HATCH OPEN TO VENT THE DIESEL EXHAUST OUT NOT INTO THE TURBOS. THE ENGINES RAN PERFECT AT THAT POINT AND THE DELIVERY WAS COMPLETED. 50 MILES INTO THIS DELIVERY WHEN I WENT INTO THE ENGINE ROOM AND SAW THE ENGINE THAT IS WHITE WAS NOW TURNING BLACK FROM THE DIESEL SOOT I CALLED AND LEFT A MESSAGE FOR TOM THE OWNER WHO THEN HAD HIS MECHANIC CALL ME AND TELL ME OH , THERE WAS A ROUGH SURFACE ON THE TURBO THAT THEY CLEANED UP BUT THOUGHT IT WAS BAD. SO I ASKED WHY WERE WE NOT CONTACTED SO QWE COULD REPLACE THE BAD PART ....??? IT WAS THE OLD DC TW STEP . BEING A MASTER MECHANIC MYSELF FOR AIRCRAFT AS WELL AS EVERYTHING ELSE (RETIRED) I KNOW GARBAGE WHEN I SMELL IT . THE MAIN REASON IM WRITING THIS REPORT IS BECAUSE THE OWNER OF THIS SO CALLED MARINE REPAIR BUSINESS REFUSED TO HONOR ANY WARRANTY ON HIS WORK AND THE WORST THING WAS HE (REFUSED TO CALL US BACK )  UNBELIEVABLE.....J HE LEFT US HANGING IN THE WIND WITH TOXIC FUMES .

WE WOULD HAVE BEEN FINE IF WE WOULD HAVE LEFT THE BOAT ALONE AND JUST RUN HER INSTEAD OF ALLOWING JT'S TO CAUSE MAJOR ISSUES. SHAME ON ME.....

AUTHOR: Fred - (United States)

POSTED: Thursday, October 04, 2018

WE JUST GOT FINISHED WITH MECHANICS THAT INSPECTED THE BOGUS WORK DONE ON THIS BOAT . THE PORT ENGINE WORK WAS BOTCHED AND LEFT BY THE MECHANIC. WE FOUND NOT ONLY DID THIS SO CALLED MECHANIC LEAVE THE OLD GASKET ON THE TURBO AND INSTALL A EW ONE OVER IT , HE ALSO STRIPPED ONE OF HE MOUNTING STUDS AND DID NOT TAKE IT APART AND INSTALL A NEW ONE. 

 

THE TURBO WAS LEAKING EXHUST AND FLAMES . THE ENGINE ALSO HAS  A BAD COOALNT LEAK THAT WAS DUE TO THIS SAME SO CALED MECHANIC LEAVING BOLTS LOOSE N THE COOLING SYSTEM HE REPLACED...

 

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY . THEY ARE NOT QUALIFIED TO WORK ON A LAWNMOWER. THEY WOULDNOT ANSWER ANY CALLS AAFER THEY GOT THEIR CHECK ......PATHETIC.
