I bought the Pontoon boat last summer, almost a year to date. Have had the boat in the shop approximately 8 times (I thank God I live fairly close). Tomorrow morning's visit will be the 9th time in the shop X 12 months (Battery/alternator/fuse issues??). Many of the issues (caught by me) were covered by warranty (most of them), but a new boat (any make/model) shouldn't have problems. Good staff with GREAT mechanics. Be smart when buying any boat from ANYONE...read your warranty....ask your questions!! I was stranded on the water sunday (25 Jun), thank you Sea Patrol. I wouldn't have needed to call them if the boat's battery didn't die.
