The mechanic that did the work dig a good job but I found serious overcharging on my bill for the amount of work that was performed. I guess since they are the only boat repair facility on this side of the bay they feel comfortable charging what ever they want. I had my work order looked at by another marine repair facility and they told me that I was seriously overcharged. They showed me several instances on the work order where hours of work at over $100 per hour was charged for work that should have only taken a few minutes. In the future I will go the extra distance across the bay before I will ever use Viking Boat Works again. The owner is also a total jerk. He talks down to his customers like he is the only person around that knows anything about boats. I wasn't impressed with him or his repair facility. Be kind to your wallet. Go somewhere else.

However when I open it up it will run about 100 yards and alarm goes off and I lose all power. The motor still runs, I drop anchor and wait 15 to 30 minutes or till I get no alarm, start it and runs good till I do it again. I usually don't open it up and I just putt around. What is the problem here?
