The origianl quote was for $500 which included diagnostic, parts, and labor. The boat is fixed, but no parts were needed. The new charge is $850-900. I did not approve additional costs, they admit they did not try to contact me to requst additional funds either. Note, there was no signed repair order generated when the boat was delivered to be repaired. I did this in person in the presence of the shop owner.
That is correct.

Since the Georgia statute is not specific about a boat as they are about a vehicle ? What is the law if it is a verhicle ? For some reason I think it would apply, even though the law does not quote "boat" spicifically. Things work like that here some times.
Can you please post the link or send it [email protected]
