Try messing with the throttle lever when it is locked in neutral. Could be a Pedal Position Sensor on the throttle. There is a thread about it here: http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ad.php?t=56678

Seems 2007's are known for these going bad, but they typically surge when the boat is taken in and out of gear.

^This. Mines going out in 200hours.

Gsxr, yes, if you can see metal partIcles trapped in the oil filter, or the oil is metallic sparkly, you have immediate problems. Probably not the case based on your analysis thus far.
Oil sample analysis catches the concentrations of all substances other than oil, in your oil, but at a microscopic level.

Thanks for the reply, I asked them to send a sample out to be tested for my own piece of mind and to set a baseline of where it is now so, next year I can do it again and compare. I’m sure with Christmas though it will be well into the new year before I know anything definitive.

Dealer 2 did say though at in a visual level all was great!!!
