    Picked up boat today. I will be re-splashing in the morning.

    Total was about $9K (inc $1K for gelcoat repair under bow).

    My cost was $500, only because I upgraded to a brand new lower unit instead of a remanufactured one.

    New lower unit
    rebuilt upper gear case, inc clutch and drive shaft.
    new props (4 blade front, 3 blade rear...was 3 and 3).
    gelcoat repair under bow from hitting dock due to being stuck in gear.

    Glad to hear you will be back on the water! Insurance is a good thing. :)

    Glad you got it fixed. Boating sure seems like an awful expensive hobby when you aren't careful and watch what you're doing. :D
