Picked up my boat from the dealership yesterday, the main shaft sheared 3 weeks ago, mercury sent a new lower unit. Now we are back at fort peck mt and ridding out another high wind storm.
Fished a few days in north Dakota and caught a few walleye ,king salmon and white bass
We caught one nice walleye and a lake trout yesterday at peck before the wind picked up and it looks like tomorrow we might be able to fish.

Nice fish, pics and info. Sorry to hear about your main shaft sheering off. How did that happen if you don’t mind saying? Thanks for sharing.

I was running on a flat smooth lake at around 35mph and the shaft sheared almost cleanly off.it looked to me like a factory defect in the shaft. Mercury warranted a new lower unit but it took nearly 3 weeks to get the parts.
Not a big deal if we had been near home but we are 1400miles out and on vacation.
Just glad to have it repaired .

Good that it was under warranty, just never know when it will be needed.

Absolutely about the warranty ,I would have been looking at a 5,000 dollar bill without it.
