  1. I ended up buying another battery from them. Yes. I know. Dumb. But I wanted to make sure if this one pooped the bed, it was them I bought it from.
  2. Are they going out of business? How can you cheat people like this?
  3. I totally agree. I am going to do this. But should I really have to? $40K. And again. I get it. Sometimes things don't work. OK. But don't treat the guy who paid you $40K like a jerk. Especially when the failures are on warranty. Maybe they are going out of business and are hanging on by a thread. Who knows. I can't figure it out. Cheating honest hard-working people. Shameful.
  4. Understood. The new boat had three Interstate batteries. Two for the trolling motor and one that runs the main engine and electronics. The boat has gone through 3 main engine batteries in three years. Each one has stranded me, the last one in a very, very dangerous situation on the Niagara River at the Devil's Hole. We could have been killed. Same old story launch, pray, then drift, or get towed home. Voltmeter always 12+ at failure. 2019 Merc 150 4 stroke. I'm diligent about keeping the two trolling motor and main engine battery charged at all times. After the first stranding, I always verified 13+ volts with voltmeter to terminals, not console gauge before launch. Never had a problem with the two original trolling motor batteries. Rock solid. Bryce guy says "you had three bad main engine batteries in succession". No CCA they say. C'mon. You kidding? All three are supposed to be covered on warranty and they say no. See below. Now they want to charge me $280 for the third. Jesus. I had more reliable 1968 outboards. Contacted manufacturer, White Marine, they say, sorry, talk to Bryce. At the end of the day what bothers me most is not the quality of the new boat, nor the battery failures, but the rotten attitude by the Bryce staff and lack of total business acumen. Is new management in place? Dave the salesman was great. Complete professional. The rest of the staff seems angry. I handed them $40K cash. Now we're arguing over $280? Are there any smart businessmen/woman left? I saved my money for my whole life working overtime, nights, weekends in a rotten, physical job. Digging ditches, working with my hands. I'm no rich guy. I worked for my money. I would have spent $200K+ more business with them over the years. I want Jet-ski's for my grand-kids. Maybe a pontoon boat for my wife. Golden years. But after month's of arguing back-and-forth over peanuts when I handed them $40K? Do you want to do business with folks like this? You reap what your sow. Sorry. Unbelievable. 5-YEAR BOW-TO-STERN WARRANTY We'll cover parts and labor for defects in materials and workmanship on electrical components, livewells and plumbing, stereo, gauges, switches, console(s), windshield, steering wheel, fishing seats, carpet, vinyl, fuel system and gelcoat. And that's just a partial list.
  5. I have owned boats for almost 40 years. Built engines and raced hydroplanes. I’ve built stock cars from the ground up. I bought a boat from them three years ago new for almost $40K and it has had constant electrical problems. OK. I get it. Sometimes you buy a lemon. But they don’t honor warranties. They’ve lied to me. And they have treated me like I was an enemy. I’m reasonable. I’m patient. But I just can’t deal with them anymore. Is it just me or has anyone else experienced the same? Man. This is awful. I wish I never bought a boat there.
  6. Fenwick HMX 12' 6" Float Rod and Sheffield Okuma Centerpin Reel in almost new condition. Rod currently retails for $129 and reel for $219. Yours for $250 for the pair. I am in Irondequoit, NY. My name is Ed 585-314-1091. Great deal. I would also trade for quality firearms in part or whole. Thanks.
  7. I'll take any. Depth, temp, jigs, live bait, smell, taste, anything. Thanks!!!
  8. I fished on Saturrday. We boated 15. Biggest was 8lbs. We were not entered in the derby. I took one look at that fish at the weigh-in station and could not believe my eyes. I've fished on that lake for over 50 years and have never caught a laker bigger than 13lbs. I'm still shocked at the size of that thing.
  9. I have a 18' Tracker that I bought brand new in 2019. Nice boat. But there are some serious ergonomic design flaws. Cant completely open live wells when back and front seats are installed - huh? Can go to full throttle if driver seat is turned the wrong way - seat hits throttle upon rotation - dangerous Cavitates unless trim is set 95-100% full down Switches for power, bilge, live wells - almost impossible to tell if on or off. Two dead batteries to prove it. Simple stuff any engineer could look at and say - this sucks. Has full welded hull so that's nice. The Lund was just too much money for me. I know they're great. I also wish I could get a Honda or Suzuki. Not an option. Trailers they sell with the boat are awesome. Can load by your self easily.
