I requested reimbursement for a faulty Mercury 150 EFI Mercury outboard motor that was sold to me sold me on July 8, 2015 by Jason Boyette. This motor came with a 30 day warranty as indicated in the Craig’s List Ad he placed. See Copy of attached Craig’s List Ad labeled Attachment 1.
On July 13th I called Jason Boyette to inform him I had mailed the key to my old engine's prop lock on Friday July 10th. During the purchase it was noted my prop was locked on motor and I had left the key at home, so I mailed it on Friday July 10th as promised. On July 13th 5PM I called Jason Boyette and he agreed to mail back to me the lock and key and the top cowling clip from my old motor because the stem of the clip on the motor he sold me was broken and I didn't want to tape it down to try the motor. I sent him pics of broken cowling clip to country.ranch.com as directed, called the next week on July 20th 2PM, he asked I resend the pics, I did, from then on he didn't return any phone calls and I never received the clip or prop lock.
On Monday, August 3, 2015 I put my boat in the water with your motor attached to run it for the first time since purchasing and hauling it to my residence in Key West. I had the boat move out into the channel at 900 RPMs (no wake speed). When I started to increase the throttle to get the boat on a plane the alarm on the motor sounded indicating a problem with the motor. I was able to be towed back to shore.
I returned to my residence and attempted to contact him immediately. I called twice and didn’t get an answer. I called a third time at approximately 6:30 P.M. and left a message stating the motor I purchased from you on July 8, 2015 broke down as soon as I tried to use it on the water. I also said I wanted to settle this politely between the two of us. I requested you either fix the motor or give me a refund and return my old engine that I had included as a partial trade in to obtain your motor. Within a minute of my leaving the message on your phone you returned my call. I indicated that I smelled wires burning on the motor. I told you it was within the 30 day warranty and I expected you to either repair this motor or refund the money I spent ($4000.) and return to me my old motor that had been included as part of a trade in for this current motor. I noted that I was contacting you within the 30 day warranty period as stated in your Craig’s List Ad (Attachment 1). You responded that I “would not be getting nothing”. You then told me not to call you anymore and you hung up on me.
Immediately after our call on August 3rd I contacted the Charlotte County, Florida Sheriff’s Department dispatcher who advised that I should call and request to speak to a detective the following morning. On Tuesday, August 4, 2015 I spoke to Detective Nix. He indicated that this is a civil case; however, the sheriff’s department had received similar complaints from other victims.
On Tuesday, August 4, 2015 I towed the boat with your motor to a mechanic located on Big Pine Key. On August 11, 2015 a local mechanic found a missing grommet (a rubber gasket that attaches to the base of the copper water tube) and confirmed that the motor had at some time previously been repaired and reassembled improperly and without the missing part. The charge for Island Outboard to determine the reason for the motor failure was $373.15 (Attachment 2). On August 26, 2015 Mr. Drake indicated that he could not determine the overall extent of the problem without further breaking down the motor at an additional charge of $400.00. He did indicate that he could already see at least an additional $600. of parts that would need to be replaced. At that time I decided to decline further evaluation and repair.
While the motor was being assessed during the month of August, I observed on August 13 that you had placed my trade-in motor, a Mercury 175 EFI on Craig’s List for sale (Attachment 3). On August 17 you sold my motor for $3000.
I am bringing you before Small Claims Court to recoup some of my loss. My total costs include $4000. for the purchase of the faulty motor, $3000.for loss of my trade in motor and $373.15 for an estimate to fix the motor you sold me, all totaling $7373.15.
