It's little snags like that can foul up your day ...

The post above this one on the previous page is blatant plagiarism. Wow. How weird.

Just telling you what we see in finishing 1200 loans last year. I NEVER SAY ALL - I SAID AVERAGE!! Obviously your wife is well above average. We work with states all over the country and some are worse than others. I am glad your wife was very competent, I only wish she worked in all the offices we deal with.
the workers at our license branch were not even close to average. I spent hours trying to convince up to 6 workers that trailers in wi did not require titles under 3000#. but here in Indiana, they all said the same thing, that I had to have a title from Wi to title it in Indiana. the book they had said all trailers registered in Wi had to have a title and that's the way it stood until one young lady kept reading the book. about a page later it said trailers under 3000# did not require a title. then they said that didn't pertain to me because my trailer was registered it had to be titled. but I kept showing them the book where it said any trailer under 3000# did not need a title. and they finally gave in and gave me a title. this is a state license branch with workers that's been there for yrs and didn't know the law. even with a book it took a junior employee to find it in the book.

I would also check into warranty coverage. Contact the Manufacturer.
See if you can take it to ANY dealer.

I ran into an issue (ongoing as well) where the local Crestliner dealer in Coopersville Michgan, lynden sports would not honor the Crestlinerr Limited Life Time Warranty, becasue "I did not buy the boat from him"

He told me I had to take it to the dealer I bought it from, I advised him that I bought the boat from a PERSON, not a dealer, & per Crestliners web page, he is my closest dealer", I was then told, "Not my Problem".

Ended up making phone calls and some reseach, and actully took my boat from Michigan to Wisconsin, 5.5 to get service. I called Kens Sports in Wisconsin, expalined to them what was going on, and got the follwoing "You get us the boat, we will help you get it fixed"

5.5 hours away, from some basic respect, you betchca, I drove my boat to their location.

But that aside, check into the warranty coverage as well.
