Reasons the product is recalled

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.

The hazards to consumers

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

What consumers should 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.
