I recently bought a 31' center console. The engines are 2005 Suzuki 4-strokes. I was told when purchasing the boat (by the owner and the agent) that the engines only had 172 hours on them. The surveyor checked it out and confirmed this. Well, I recently had some minor issues and put the boat in the shop (the engines are still under warranty). Gary, at Lou's marine starts looking into the warranty claim history on the engines and finds out that both ECU's were replaced on the engines, and that at that time the engines had 839 hours on them! So I basically bought a boat with 2 outboards that had 1000 hours on them and it was sold to me saying that they only had 172 hours. Now I know if you sell a car and turn back the odometer to cover up the actual engine mileage it is illegal. Does this apply to boats as well? This was obviously done to cover up the actual hours on the engines and was never disclosed. Has anyone ever had any experience like this, or does anyone know if I have any legal recourse? Any lawyer reccomendations?
