Inventory: Marine Motor Selections

Release 11.14.4

Release 11.14.4 now allows motor selection in G2 unit build for marine dealers.

This feature allows another layer of information to be included the Unit Build function for new Units in Sales Quotes, Finance Quotes, Deals and Maintain Unit Inventory.
