Anyone have an idea how much it will cost for a shop to repair worn seals rings on the lower unit of a 4 stroke? Thanks!

It depends from motor brand, size, year, etc.

The more info you give us the better reply you will receive.

BTW welcome to the Forum.

Thanks Valv. It is a 2003 Yamaha F75 Four Stroke. I've been told by a well known Yamaha dealer that parts and labor will be about $500. We are trying to get it covered by warranty.

Thanks for the welcome. I'll be posting more questions as I prepare for open water.

Unless it was caused by gross negligence it has to be covered under warranty, motor has 7 years, which means 4 years left.

I am wondering, does your "handle" say something about what happened to lower unit shocked.gif

I sure hope not, thats a lot of coin....

My handle comes from my favorite spots to fish. Thankfully, I have never damaged a lower unit. (Knocking on my wood desk as I type). My current issue is with a boat I recently purchased. I had a mechanic check everything out, and the only thing he found wrong was the seals/rings on the lower unit. Not happy that I need a repair before getting it in the water, but I got good value on the purchase of an 04 boat with 03 outboard. I didn't have a mechanic take a look before the purchase because I knew the boat would move quick, and there was another buyer coming to look. I brought a friend and we inspected the boat carefully for an hour before I agreed to purchase. Can't wait to hit the water.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
