i read on one of the forums about a guy whos shaft log failed was quoted 100 bucks a foot just to put pumps in the boat. for me thats 2700 bucks for a 500 dollar pump. if i ever need help that bad on my current boat, i will sink or burn it, i would rather be out the couple grand i have in the boat than deal with legal robbery. i would love to see a tow boat get stuck, i would go pull them out if i could and file salvage on it.
i think this needs a fair way of doing it, lets say a 150 bucks and hour for a tow, rent of pumps at 250 bucks a day per pump plus delivery time. etc
if my boat needs help, like a pull of a shoal, why the hell should it cost thousands for an hour of work
