1. Hatch cover support rod. battery hatch………

this problem was fixed see invoice

2. Rear bumper cushion. stern portside corner…leg pad. bumper pad..w/ Boston whaler logo around the back of the vessel. The seam has come undone in the back left corner of the boat. gapping hole. showing the foam from beneath

3. stb. fish box pump doesn’t work when turned on. box full of rainwater. can’t pump out. Boat lists while mobile as result.

4. Controls for engine…This was an issue that dockside marine actually did. When I purchased the boat it had no controls on it at all. dockside marine put the controls on that needed to be placed. The controls never worked right until the new cables were put in un-twisted.

this problem was corrected after the

boat was not fit to drive. via controls stuck…see invoice…………….

5. Stereo remote. the stereo quit working. after the problem was troubleshot it was revealed that the stereo remote mounted in the dash was faulty and needs to be replaced.

6. Leaky toilet when water switch is on…Not tested? The very first time I turned on the water switch. the front cabin showed signs of leakage. The floor in the front cabin was wet and revealed a leak from where the water line goes into the toilet.

7. Seat buttons. don’t line up. all over boat self explanatory…the buttons on the cushions all over the boat don’t meet up with the counterparts in the vessel. Design flaw.

8. Windlass doest respond… easy to explain the first time I go to use the windlass it doesn’t do nothing. the switches are on. and show power on the indicator light … but the switches just don’t do anything. no movement whatsoever.

9. Blowing electrical circuit for front panels. ie bilge, wash down ECT. There seems to be a faulty reset switch in the battery compartment.

10. Loose screws wont stay tight. some of them are not even stainless steel and are already leaving rust rings around them. all over cuddy entrance

11. Light under driver seat. I have no idea why it went out. the lens broke and the light stopped. I think maybe it was too tight in the housing.

12. Toilet stays pumping air battery drain. from the moment it is plugged in the toilet pump, inside the hatch between the front seats under the floor, continuously running killing the battery in a day or 2.

All with out even taking out 1 charter yet.

These issues are unacceptable. how am I supposed to run a business if the

Equipment doesn’t work. I realize that at least some of this isn’t the result of anything dockside marine did, however you are the people who sold me this lemon. the motors are fine. purr like a kitten. it’s the durability of the boat I have a problem with after only minimal usage. I haven’t even taken out guest yet and I can not do so until there is a resolution to the problems experienced while the vessel is still under warranty. Like I said in my fax cover sheet… If this was any other purchase and I had this many problems with it under warranty, I would demand my money back realistically how is the boat going to stand up in 10 years if it is like this now.
