    finally made the decision and got rid of that anchor around my neck. That boat was a pain in my ass from the moment I picked it up at defiance and took it to neah bay.it spent more months back at defiance than in my yard. Got to give defiance credit as they tried to fix all the problems but it seemed nobody could keep up as many things that would go wrong. The last straw was this year when that piece of shit Honda took a dump and cost me the salmon season and most of the tuna. I no defiance had nothing to do with the motor going horse shit but there was more issues with that boat that if they spent more time addressing quality control and not trying to push more boats out they would have a good product. I'm just happy that somebody else has the anchor now

    Do you have a couple hours ? Water leaks around tunnel,leaks around windshield,hydraulic steering leaks,hydraulic steering lines were kinked,when you turned wipers on it shut down chart plotter,when I first went to put boat in water it wouldn't come off of trailer,transducer wouldn't work,motor was positioned wrong boat porpoised,dash was loose had to be reworked,the list just keeps going on as for that piece of shit motor in 2012 there was a revision on the hood so water vapor wouldn't be drawn into exhaust intake,that didn't work so I was told that there was 3 other revisions not sure I couldn't get a straight answer. I had a problem with the o2 sensor so I took it back to defiance where the y discovered that water had been drawn into motor .they were to busy to do anything about it but helped me work along. With Honda customer service to find somebody that would. Work. On it.it only better than 3 weeks .ruined the whole summer/thank god it's gone

    so what you are saying is a Parker with a Yamaha four stroke would have been the better purchase......
