          +3 on Harbor Marine, but also shop around for new transmission prices. A few years ago I found out that a new transmission with full factory warranty cost just a bit more than overhauling mine.

                Harbor Marine in Everett (+6) are the experts. Gallery Marine did a great job in remove/replace and coordination with Harbor Marine.

                  What is the problem with your transmission? Did you hit something! Were there tell tale signs or symptoms?

                    He just bought the boat. The transmission issue showed up in the survey.

                      #7 on Harbor Marine in Everett. Mike was a real help, and cost effective, a few years ago when my previous boat had transmission troubles.

                        The transmission issue I am inquiring about was uncovered during a survey (and we haven't closed on the boat, and may not due to this issue)...

                        There are enough options out there for 4788/490s that unless we receive a sufficient price reduction, we are not inclined to purchase a known potential problem.

                        Greatly appreciate all the advice, and very glad to hear about a good transmission guy in Everett (as that is where we will ultimately moor the boat if the purchase goes through).
