Bass Tracker boat parts and accessories
To begin, I acknowledge as other individuals who wrote reviews have done, I did not look for customer satisfaction or history of high quality item. I made the error of thinking BPS/Tracker Marine Advertising. A huge blunder. Item: Targa 18 W/T - Delivered in December 2012. I shall begin this review with my newest knowledge of course time permits is certainly going back in its history to explain others sources of dissatisfaction and disappointment. This case is the most glaring and unsettling.
You start with the available liquid fishing period for this 12 months (2015) we noticed the ship having increasing amounts of liquid inside bilge. As I noted various other reviews, the rear reside really will overflow into the bilge, and I thought it had been due to my possibly overfilling thus I would run the bilge pump every so often. As I fished to the last of April it became apparent the water originated from elsewhere. Upon returning from my final trip out I got to my back and crawled beneath the truck to check the hull. It had been however found two cracks in hull right underneath the passenger windshield. Both splits had been more or less two inches lengthy and found about one foot from center range.
Since that occurred from the weekend, we waited before the after Monday to call the Tracker Store where we purchased the ship. Bass Professional Shops, Rossford (Toledo), Ohio. We spoke on solution manager, Mr. **, and began explaining my problem. Mr. ** appeared to not want to pay attention and immediately began informing myself that since I have used the boat on Lake Erie that it probably had struck lots of big waves, causing it to crash difficult to the liquid, and I should more or less expect the watercraft hull to fail. He then proceeded to tell myself how all riveted boats encounter leaking rivets and once more implied that i will anticipate leaks with a welded hull. And, easily mishandled the boat I shouldn't a bit surpised. Then requested me to take it set for evaluation, that I did here morning, Tuesday, might 05, 2015.
Once I took the boat in for their assessment, we began our discussion with, "we politely heard you yesterday, today I would like for you really to hear me. As you can see I am not a man, really 73 years of age, together with final thing I enjoy gets my rear-end beat-up in heavy waves and wild rides. We admit, in the event that you venture out on Lake Erie, you have to anticipate rough water most of the time and you also adjust for it. I've been boating on the pond for nearly forty many years with many different art and I also failed to like your implication that We abused the vessel. Also, since your shop sits just a few miles from Lake Erie where we in your community motorboat, if ships you sell are not made to manage some harsh water, the trend is to note that whenever you offer them? In the event that you view many TV ads you can expect to note one ends with a Targa 18 cresting a wave around three legs."
Needless to say, although I stated the aforementioned things on the go, Mr. ** was fast to start telling me numerous items that suggested i ought to never be amazed that my hull was cracked. Upon evaluation, the cracks had been verified and I also was then informed the motorboat will have to be returned to the factory. Once the factory accepted its return however advise me but I wouldn't get it right back for 4 to 6 days. Two bumps in 2 sentences. Go back to the factory and 4 to 6 days right in the primetime of my fishing season, wow is all i possibly could say.
Well as luck will have it, seven days later we remembered I experienced kept unique within the ship that I didn't feel safe about delivering towards the factory. I called to ask in the event that dealership had eliminated my things and, if that's the case, i'd stop in and select all of them up. Shock number 3. I became informed that they hadn't yet done anything to the watercraft and would not until they had agreement to send it straight back. This can be conjecture on my part but i'm they hadn't even required the authorization. When I requested the reason why that they had perhaps not done something, Mr. ** informed me personally I didn't have a service visit once I introduced the vessel in and I needed to wait my turn in range! We made mention your watercraft had not planned an occasion with me for it to start breaking aside. I retrieved my things as well as the motorboat sat in their lawn for the next six times (a complete of 13 entirely) before it had been delivered on plant.
