Hi, my name is Kerry

If I'm going to be any help, I need to know what you have.

Things that can help would be information from any id plates on the transmission and engine,

the color they're painted might help.

What year and model is the boat?

Can you send me pictures?

You would need to put the pictures on your computer and use the paper-clip icon above the chat window to send them.
