    took the slx out today...wow for more problems.

    took the slx out for 2.5 minutes noticed it felt like the drive shaft was slipping. sure enough after further inspection all of the motor mounts are broken and the motor was about 2 inches forward. that would probably explain the slippage. wtf.....now what do i do?? any advice fellas???

    Depends on what was all broken on each of the mounts. I assume the bolts that go into the inserts of the hull is what broke on all of them? Let us know...pics would help.

    Replace the motor mounts and align the pump.

    It won't be fun, I'll say that. It depends what broke though. Are the bolts snapped off in the hull inserts? If so, you'll need to extract the broken pieces, that'll suck the most. If the motor mount rubber part broke and you can remove the bolts securing them to the hull, it won't be bad at all. You can prob swap them without removing the engine, just propping it up and sliding it back and forth. Then you'll need the alignment tool which Beerdart rents for cheap, which is not difficult, just time consuming.
