after reading all of this thread i see a pattern appearing and with my experience with trying to get hold of proper answers and spares even a call back from someone who knows what they are talking about to order the correct spare part from b/h i have always ended up taking my business else where to someone who actually wants to sell you the right part with good advice and at a reasonable price with excellent after sales
ime sorry but i also ust to run a business and every customer left happy with what they wanted or asked for if they had a problem it was sorted there and there and they had no need to go shouting about it or spreading it over the net which is usually the last thing they should do you need to make sure your customers know that if they have a problem they come to you and only you first - either way you look at it the business has been around for a long time but now under new management time will only tell and getting it right from the start of your take over will secure your future

To be fair, if you want some out of date flares it seems like the best place to go....

Simon threw in an "out of date at your own risk smoke flare" as he had none in stock for me to purchase. 6 months warranty was also given rather than the standard 3 which covered my first season but no need to claim on it as it ran sweet.
I would have gone for the Flush Muffs myself

I don't have any dogs in this fight but I feel compelled to post a few questions because of the ridiculousness of it all.

1) Wouldn't it be easier to swap to a long shaft motor rather than cut the transom?
2) Wouldn't cutting the transom void any warranty?
3) Has the OP gotten his full refund yet?
