I have not seen anything on mine, and she has been put to the test several times in her 200+ hour young life.

it has got loose on the transom and slid down on one side, actually moving up and down on one side. it started chipping gelcoat! i spoke with george at blazer and he said bring it by and he would tell me if it is warranty. he talked like i should have been checking it constantly. i didn't think to re-torque at my 100hr service. it now has 127hrs on the engine. everyone should check your jackplate :!:
