I smelled BS all over that operation. My feeling is he wanted to tell me I need a new motor and then quietly fix that one up for his own boat. The issue now is just that I am silently outraged at being hoodwinked and refuse to pay good money for nothing to be fixed. I am willing to just leave the motor there I think and not pay them a dime and just not return any more of their calls. As far as I recall I never gave them any credit card info and all they took from me was the name of the boat, my name, phone number and said hed come down and take a look so really what will they do if I just ignore them? If I do go back I am going to be quite angry and its not going to be pleasant for anyone involved.
What would they need to put a lien on the boat?
