Yes that is my boat. Running down the lake at 80 and the motor just quit, was a bit interesting having the boat come off the pad unexpextedly and start chinewalking like crazy.

Started it back up and idled 1/8th mile to my parents. Pulled the plugs :(

The other 5 still look perfect. Thinking I might have lost an injector....going to send them out and get them cleaned, calibrated, flowed, tested, etc.

First picture not real bad???

With that much aluminum on the plug - You have to know that the piston is toast.
I could see the hole in the piston through the plug hole. I didnt even need to pull the head to know that the piston was toast......

Your boat is pretty new right? Would that be covered by warranty?
