Drove all the way to Cabelas in Hammond, Indiana on friday to pick up my new 2008 Lowe FM175DC with 90 Optimax at a wonderful price. It looked good in driveway! Took family for test run at West Branch yesterday afternoon and it apparently leaks since my wife was in 4" of water in back of boat after an hour when I throttled up to TRY to plane. Ran bilge for 20 minutes as I limped back to boat launch. Plug was in properly, so I assume it's a fitting or hose on the double lievelwell system. It obviously rained on my parade. As for Cabelas service, I called the boat dept. manager promptly this morning that the incident could have been a catastrophy for family. The dept. manager and his repair technician are driving from Indiana to my house on Wednesday to repair the leak, test on nearby lake, and if necessary, take back to Indiana and return it to me fixed. I'm encouraged by what I hear because I am obviously a bit upset with ISO 9000 quality certified Lowe Boat Inc. at this moment, but reserve final opinion when all is made right. Wonder if they leak test or have the customers figure it out? I'll provide update for anyone interested in Cabelas or Lowe boats from a service perspective. My wife keeps saying "take deep breaths, take deep breaths".
