Above, on that same note.... I should probably edit out my thoughts on the cause of folk's issues with the Big. It is not my job/place to "diagnose" problems. BUT! It is the dealers job to make sure that All MasterCraft Customer issues are being resolved. So my advice, instead of me diagnosing your issue, is to document it well and turn it over to your dealer for resolution. They should have the talent to fix it AND if they don't...take it to another MC dealer and get a second opinion. My dealer here in Cincy resolves all issues quickly without effort and yours should do the same!

Again, document, document, document - this way if they cannot figure it out, they can send your notes to ilmor/medallion/Murphy or whomever - one specific thing you note may help them resolve it for you.

Again good luck we hope your issues are resolved quickly

I have not seen the latest updates yet, but the two follow ups in summer 2012 did not solve a thing. My dealer tried to help as good as he could but I've seen his mails with MC Europe in Great Britain and they did not even acknowledge any of the 'issues' which I will continue to call problems. Instead they're trying to charge the dealers for firmware update devices.

Don't get me wrong, I love my boat, a MC is probably the best to buy in the segment and we had the best summer with it last season, but it's still quite a way to go until MC meets the higher standard it's holding itself up to... imo

Hoping for the best in 2013..

Can you confirm the firmware versions on your boat?

Can you post pics of the broken parts? I'm having a hard time understanding how the pin sheered off.

Can you have your dealer upgrade the firmware ?

Stefan - I would presume the sales volume of boats in your country is not what it is here in the US. But, it would seem that a firmware device or what is known as a "cable and a laptop" should be standard equipment at any MC dealer? Otherwise, how would the dealer reset error codes or do anything on a 2011 or 2012 MC pro package boat?

probably not we have 2 dealers in Germany, and I'm guessing around another 10+ in Europe.
Medallion has not yet arrived in the times of using pc's for firmware flashes, for the GDIG they're using a flasher device like the one in the attached picture, the BIG can be flashed via USB flashdrive

I was just at my dealer a few days ago and they said that the board rack pins shearing was a common problem that they see a lot.

It'll be probably mid to End of March till our season starts and my boat will be ready at the dealer.
It would also be interesting to find out the newest Versions of the GDIG/BIG software used. Also would be interesting to know if the fill times can be set by owners or just by the dealer.
