    That might be enough for me to just call Memorial Day a wash and go out the next weekend. I don’t feel like getting stranded or having anything else happen. Thanks for the info

    Update 3.

    Just got a email from Larry Engelbert at Indmar. He confirmed that Jim Alexander was the most up to date individual at Indmar in regards to the shipments of alternators. Jim told my service department that they are out of stock and don’t know when they’ll ship! So I’m now canceling plans with family and out of town guests... I hate to say it but I’m seriously doubting my loyalty to Moomba. Very disappointed with my dealership as well. I drive by a Axis/Malibu dealer to get to this dealership, maybe that was a sign!

    Ya I am definitely bummed about being down for the Holiday weekend but it is better than having any kind of issue on the water with family and friends aboard. I think SC did what they had to do as soon as they could and I can't be mad at that. No regrets here, it is an amazing boat!!

    With all the talk of alternators being out of stock I figured I should call me dealer about my appointment on the 24th to replace mine and make sure they will have one for me. Turns out that as soon as they got the heads up about the recall they ordered 1 for every boat they had in stock and every boat they sold that is affected. So I am good to go and am really happy that they did that. Big Shout Out to Rinkers for being proactive!!

    What other brands use the Indmar 450?

    I don't believe any as I believe the 450 is a motor made for SC only. It is more a question of which Indmar engines use that specific alternator. The 450 is essentially a choked down 460 as it is the same in every aspect except the 450 uses a smaller diameter exhaust system.

    Ok, I didn’t know it was exhaust restricted.

    Tige uses the 460.

    Still curious why such a huge alternator on that engine only??

    Drew Tinker just shared this:


    Indmar has begun a Safety Recall campaign to replace defective 230A alternators on all 2019 model year 450 Indmar engines in Moomba and all 2019 model year 400, 450 and 575 Indmar engines in Supra.

    For more information see the attached link.
