    First I have heard of this. What boat do you have (year and model)?

    Wow. Wonder if this will only be for current year boats or if all Raptors will be affected?

    Ya I am not sure. I have the 450 so not sure if it is specific to the motor but I would doubt that they have different alternators..... It must be something serious bc they told me to not use my boat, make sure the battery switch is off and/or unhook my battery cables. I have an appointment to get it replaced on the 24th but that puts me down for Memorial Day weekend so I am trying to see if I can get it in sooner.

    Nothing here on an 18, but it sounds like a fire hazard if they are telling you to disconnect all battery connections.

    Yep. Internal wiring issues in alternator that might start a fire.

    My Makai is in for the break in service. Saw this thread and called the service department. They said it is only certain serial numbers are being recalled. I have the 450 engine as well. He said he would check if I was on the list..... fingers crossed.

    *Update*

    Mine is on the list. Dang! He said parts are back ordered, could be SEVERAL weeks before they have the replacement. I’m pretty steamed right now.....
