I had one lock in forward on a 2007 Donzi ZR. Come to find out the nut that holds the selector inside the tranny backed out. Tech's call for loctite, non installed and mercury said oh well. The cost for a new tranny with labor is close to $11K with fluids and seals as well.

Mercury wouldn't even help me on the seal or fluids, what a why to stand behind your product after they made the mistake.

I was thinking of you guys when this thread was posted! They would be the ones to talk to as many of their customers have had numerous problems.

Mine is under warranty but I can tell something is going on. Don't want the $11K repair to be on me-WOW that sucks.

I know a few that have had problems and a few that seem to be bullet proof. It seems that certain hulls are more prevalent then others. I have heard that the x-dimension can have a huge effect but don't know for sure. Donzis and Cigarettes seem to be holding up better than Outerlimits from what we have seen in NJ and my understanding is that almost all the Fountains have #6 w/ the 700s.
