Wow, sounds like a lemon!
No experience with Crusader engines, but that isn't right. At 170hrs, even with little to no reccomended maint performed, it should still be running like a top.
Sludge in injectors?
Didn't see where either shop looked at or cleaned the fuel tank. That is the only place debris could be coming from. ANd where are you getting gas? Unless it's "Bubba's marina" with 3yr old boat gas, sounds difficult to get enough [email protected] in the tank in a couple yrs or 170hrs.
Check the tank first.
RE the rest of the issues. Unless the boat was sunk in salt water, or severly neglected there's not a good explanantion for all the belt/alt/electrical failures.

The boat has never sunk. It has been in salt water but not submerged in it... We have filled up at Jupiter, FL inlet gas dock and other times at the gas station on the trailer. One of the invoices says checked fuel. Im guessing that they tested it. Never heard anything further so I assume it was fine.

hope my new boat is not like yours ...sorry bud

I have 550 hours on my 6.0L Crusader and it's been great. Sorry to hear about your troubles
