    Got my confirmation email from Breezy yesterday. Is it too early to be excited?

    No kidding. Snapper fishing is fun but would love to get offshore this year.

    Yeah we were '2nd' in line for a slip at Breezy so we booked Kon Tiki.

    More Yamaha SHO woes...

    Sorry for the delay, but I have some pictures to share. These are of the old trim-tilt assembly that got removed. The two small pieces are the pieces of the tube that had to be cut with an arc welder and could not be removed from the base of the assembly. You can also see the corrosion at the top from the original part that caused problems at the top a few years back. Yamaha truly did a disservice to their customers by making an error like this in the first place, and then denying it was an issue and not correcting it. Feel betrayed after many years and $$ of loyalty.

    Still hoping a slip at Breezy opens up...but not looking good. We did get a room at Kon Tiki though.

    Anyone heard of anyone possibly not coming and giving up their slip?

    Where exactly are you staying? I'm still #2 on the waiting list for a slip at Breezy.

    Will do guys. Ill get pictures of the old part that seized up (and was able to be removed) and the most recent one as well.

    Got the boat back yesterday and all the old parts, including the two pieces of the frozen tube and the old assembly with the remaining part in it they couldn't get out. Yamaha is not done hearing from us. I'd really like them to demonstrate to me what it is, as an owner, that I could have done to prevent this, and explain why this never seemed to be an issue with the 4 other Yamahas I've run and maintained. Also would like to see those specific instructions in the manual. Glad to have the boat home and usable again... but I'm now wondering what is the next domino to fall...

    This is exactly what has happened with us - steering started to go and that's how we discovered the tube had seized. Unfortunately this time, despite time with an acetalyne torch and an air-hammer, they can't get the part loose. Only solution is an entire new assembly. Not happy about it at all. As long as Yamaha has been in business, they should know two different metals causes electrolysis. Heck, I bet even most 2nd graders know this.
