Bought new from Marine Tech, South Walsham on Thursday, ran it for 15 minutes Friday and all good. Took grandchildren out Saturday and ran perfectly .. for half an hour, then stopped, restarted and stopped within two minutes many times. Much time at side of river, badly damaged rub rail on boat. Angry wife, very worried children
Tried again the next day, new fuel, thinking it must be the air vent as surely a new Mariner which had pre-sale checks must be OK. It wasn't. Stopped after half an hour. Towed back.
Full refund this morning from Marine Tech, didn't even say sorry.
