    My gheenoes CmC trim n tilt unit is broke and I dont know how to fix it by myself. Central florida marine told me $300 to fix the unit. I can get a TsG jack plate for that price ::). But, the big deal is I am gonna be selling the boat soon anyway so I dont really want to put allot of money into it.

    what should I do...

    A. take it to CFM and let them fix it for you.

    B. get the jack plate it is more durable then the CmC.

    C. tak3 $300 off your asking price.

    IMHO - Take $300.00 off the asking price based on a boat with everything in working condition. The buyer may not want a CMC, you break even and they save $300 bucks.

    Take it off and sell the boat with out it.

    set the boat on fire while on the water, let it sink, in surance will cover it all!

    setting it on fire would be cool, take off $ 300, less hassle for you.

    OK, gotta ask. Do you feel like the boat is more marketable with the CMC removed or with the option if the new owner wants to repair?

    I honestly feel that a boat is eaier to sell "ready to run without repair" vs one that requires repair to use.

    Maybe the correct answer is to remove the CMC and give it to them in a box?

    Yes, especially to potential 1st time boat owners.

    If the buyer is knowledgeable then this may be a negotiating point.


    What is so broke that they want 300 to repair it? Is it still just that one little piece?

    I say fade the price back $300. Penny for penny you will never get your money back and if you fix the TnT you run the risk of excluding potential buyers who want a jackplate instead.

    As far as removing may have more buyer appeal leaving things as is...

    This might just be a blessing in disguise ;)

    Now, just how many rocks did you "kiss" at Ozello? :eek:
