    Buddies daughter brought bananas on board today and on our way home from the tuna grounds out of westport we hit a submerged log. Ugh...15 miles out. It sounds like it stripped a gear in the lower.

    Where is the best place to buy a new lower for a mercruiser alpha gen 2? I'm desperate. We are here till Saturday.

    Even though you are wrongly laying blame on buddies daughter and her innocent fruit I will cut you a break. Try Stern drive engineering.

    The first place I would go in the morning is to Englund Marine here in Westport and ask for Paul.

    They may not carry it but he more than likely knows who does and you may be able to have it overnighted to their shop if it's not to far away.

    It sounds like you know how to change it yourself so pulling it and driving it yourself to a shop somewhere in the Puget Sound area may be what needs to be done to get you back on the water.

    Good luck with your ordeal and just ask if you need more info.

    I take all responsibility. It was unavoidable. It was below the water line. Both my watchman and I missed it. Is Sei local?

    A few hours away but I would bet Renton marine or all seasons marine of sumner and Renton respectively would have one.

    Good ideas here.

    Pull the old one and take it with you to be 100% sure you get the right one and turn in the core if there is one and your back on the water by Thursday afternoon if you can find someone with one on the shelf.

    Could be much worse.

    Sei would be most economical but probable would require scuttling your trip. Good luck on finding a replacement. I hope you are able to get back on the water soon.

    Look up marine repair in Aberdeen. You might get lucky and one of them will have one in stock with the right gear ratio. Try crowley marine in Aberdeen, they are close.

    Fuck logs. I hit one a few trips ago also and it scares the shit out of you. Luckily i had no damage. I wish you the best but have no info on a lead.

    If you need tools or stuff, im only an hour away in olympia and you can use whatever you need.

    Sorry to hear about your boat but did the bananas effect the tuna bite? How’d you do out there on the grounds?

    That’s why god made insurance....still is a drag. We have had a three new-motor year :-(. RIP Suzuki DF20 with 20 hours - stolen; Suzuki 250 with 800 hrs - overpropped premature death and Yanmar 4JH3-HTE developed an appetite for swallowing valves) so we know that sucky feeling

    Do you know what gear ratio you have? Or what size engine? I have an alpha one gen 2 outdrive from my 24’ trophy. It had a 5.0 Mercruiser and I swapped out to a 5.7 and changed the outdrive at that time. I am up north of Bellingham though and don’t know anyone heading that way.

    We had a great time. Ended with 11. Tough time converting to bait. Bite died around noon. Troll fish were hitting everything. 46.2 125.01 is where we ended up.

    Tanglewild Marine in Olympia is another potential.
