Lift won’t go up and down

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

I had a marine guy come out the one motor is burnt out

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 important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?

I would like to someone to come out and look at it and give me a estimate to fix. The boards need materials replaced. Irma ripped them off.

I cannot recommend any one to you, nor can I go put and repair your lift. That is not the services that we offer here.
