Anyone in the same boat :(

Soon to be two months since I ordered/paid for a Terrova 24V trolling motor,
same day I ordered/paid for a Hummingbird Helex9.
(the Helex9 is supposed to work with Minn Kota)

Can't even get a "ruff" guesstimate when they might ship either one.
Is this due to the so called chip shortage?

Ordered a Minn Kota Power Pole. It's been a month, just called yesterday they cannot provide a rough estimate on delivery. CRAZY RIGHT KNOW! and forget about repowering!

Semiconductor shortage. Buy somewhere local that has them in stock. Or wait.

The lots at my local car dealers look pretty sparse.


With that said, I have a new in box Bob's hydraulic jack plate I might list. Going another route.

Had a trailer builder take an order. He told me 14 weeks minimum. 2 weeks later he sends me my check back. Said call him next year, lol.

It's nuts.

Just put in my order for a new ride. Anticipating many delays or a half finished boat. MK Terrova, Hbird, Suzuki . . . happy to wait for the finished product. But hopefully not too long.

I bet you Jeff Bezos's containers aren't waiting off the coast of Long Beach to get unloaded.

Sleepy Joe giving away our money, so why would one who's getting it want to work for a living?

A car I ordered in March is in the US from Germany since June 15, now the holdup is trucking to get it from Brunswick, GA to TN due to trucking shortage. Might be here [finally] this Friday, June 25.

I have back orders at my work due to some of our manufacturers unable to get their specified cardboard boxes and plastic bags.... Lots of issues all around.

Yea, remember when he got ready to send the 1st checks out and demanded his name be printed on them?

Oh wait.
Socialism is socialism, regardless of which politician signed the check. Neither this president nor the last had the right to redistribute the fruits of one's labor.

Makes one wonder just how these companies are staying in business not shipping product for months. Was really looking forward to a little serious fishing this month but starting to wonder if this wait might turn into seeing one or both companies going belly up and taking my money with them...

That's because he flies his stuff in direct to municipal airports. We have 8-12 a day coming into ours, and they are gearing up for 40 plus.
