I have to put in my 2 cents worth. For the last few days to couple of weeks I've noticed alot of Tracker/Nitro issues. I would like to say how satisfied I am with my Tracker. I have a 1997 Targa 18SC w/115 Mercury that I purchased new. With the exception of a front deck courtesy light that quit working shortly after my purchase, my Tracker has been flawless. Hull, trailer, motor, electronics and accessories have performed without fail. My dealer has also been terrific. The boat, motor performance and dealer has made this a very enjoyable ownership experience.
