Customer Question
Hi there. In proses...

Hi there. In proses to buy 6 meter Mercery 115 engine. Tested it this morning and boat insteady. When you excalurate the boat hang over a lot to the left side; to the point that it feel as if it's going to over turn. when slacking of it's rectifing itself again. This problem is not at high speed even on lower speed. Do you know what can cause this problem and is if worth will buying?

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?

It is an old boat 1982 but engine newer model. onely problem we aware of.

Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with? I read what you wrote. Is this a fiberglass boat or an aluminum boat? Does the boat have any kind of trim tab system on it?
