I ordered a new 2275GCW last December 29th 2012 . It was delivered in late winter/early spring 2013. From the day it was delivered, I have had issues with the new 9.9hp Yamaha four-stroke which came with the new boat. When I moved it from the dealer's delivery trailer to the dock for storage, it would barely start, run or idle. The same was true the first time I tried to use the pontoon; I gave up and headed back to the dock. Yesterday, I tried a second time and it took me thirty minutes to start the motor. Once it was running, it would not idle, stumbled badly, shook the boat and died numerous times. I aborted the trip and head back to the dock, where it stalled when I tired to dock in cross winds. My wife is unhappy because she is unable to safely use the boat when I am away. As of today, the motor has roughly one or two hours on the hour meter and is under warranty for seven years. We don't have a trailer and we do not move boats in/out of our lake due to Zebra Mussel rules. My Bennington dealer (about 50 miles away) is shorthanded and says it would be tough for him to make it to my boat this summer for repairs. The Godfrey dealer (also 50 miles away and mad because I bought a Bennington this time) is the second Yamaha dealer in my area. They are too busy to make service calls and because I didn't buy the boat from them, I am low priority. The local Cabelas shop is a Yamaha dealer only ten minutes away but they do not make dock calls and they are swamped with business. The gas was fresh when my Bennington dealer delivered my boat. The fuel tank is only three gallons and fuel has been treated; it's nearly full of the original fuel. There are a dozen older 9.9hp Yamahas on my lake, which run great. QUESTIONS: How do I get warranty service? Should I be required to pay for anything? Will Yamaha allow a local non-dealer to make repairs? Is my dealer obligated to help me?
