    Very nice.

    I would take that video and send it to Tracker and ask them to assure me that having the water flow back over all the fuel fittings and the tank hardware is OK with them and if you end up with new issues of water in the fuel or engine they will not try to say you did something wrong or caused you own issue. Even if they ignore you that will help to support you in any arbitration hearing if they turn you down on a warranty claim in the future.

    If I had that boat I would have a fuel water seperator on it and monitor it religiously.

    Thanks for the advice im going to find an email for someone in tracker to show the video and not at the basspro dealer because the mechanics there are not worth talking to anymore, I asked them to check the horn that was rusting and failing and also to check the whole fuel system and nothing was done I also asked about putting a smartcraft gauge or the new bluetooth transmitter that sends data to a phone app and the service manager himself said that the motor is not compatible with that and i checked when I got home and now I ordered the part its called vesselview.also I changed both water separator and inline fuel filter because they didnt check it at both were dirty.

    This is a happy thread so I'm not going to bog it down with too much unhappy stuff. You should start a journal and find someone at Tracker Marine and maybe Mercury to tell about all of these issues with the dealer. Those guys are ignoring their responsibility to you as a customer and leaving you hanging with issues that could potentially cost you thousands of dollars because of failures on a brand new boat.
