What are the defects?

The water rail connectors fitting may fail, resulting in water leaks. If the water rail connectors fail, a significant amount of water could be discharged into the boat and this could disable the engine.

What are the hazards?

If the engine is disabled, it is possible that the boat could become stranded. This could increase the risk of accident or injury.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should stop using their boat. Owners of affected engines have been contacted in writing to request that they contact an authorised Mercury MerCruiser dealer to schedule a service appointment.
Please mention Mercury MerCruiser Service Bulletin 20-09.
