How much do you pay for your 100 hour service? I just paid 750 for mine. It seems a little steep.

Ouch, what exactly do they do at a 100 hour service?

I know its an oil change, Spark Plugs, Tranny fluid change, check and lube your drive line, Check trailer lights, new distributor cap and insides, check fuel system, new impeller, check cooling system, check timing, and some other random stuff.

Do it yourself for about 50 bucks
I can't believe anybody would pay that much money to service a boat
Bring it to me, I'll do it for $200.00
...plus tip and a beer

Sounds like he checked everything...including your wallet.

if you're going through the dealer.. I was quoted something like:

120 oil and filter change
100 tranny fluid change
100 impellar change
100 fuel filter change

I thought that was a lot at 420... looks like the rest of that stuff is just "checking" stuff... not sure if that's worth a couple hundred bucks..

I will not go through the dealer again for this

It's kind of a supply and demand thing. If you have the tools, place, time and knowledge to do it yourself, correctly, then any amount over the cost of parts is too high. If you are not able to do it yourself, for what ever reason, then you are at the mercy of the going rate in your area.

$750 does sound high tho. IMO

They're changing your spark plugs and doing all of that stuff at 100 hours? That seems a little early to me to be changing out the plugs.

cap/rotor, plugs "check driveline" like look at the prop shaft?

Learn to do it yourself. "peace of mind" isn't that much...

i used think that going through the dealer is the safe route. but now i know that doing it yourself is the only way you really know something gets done. I think i paid about 600 also. won't happen again.

Its not all that difficult. I don't see why they would want to change plugs and cap/rotor at 100 hours...just doesn't seem right to me, but check your engine manual.

Oil Change: $40 worth of supplies, 20-30 mins of time.
V Drive fluid change: $20 worth of supplies, 15 mins.
NOTE: The above are contingent on you already having a pump to remove the fluids.

Impellor: $30? part, 10 minutes.

Fuel Filter: $5 part, 3 minutes...TOPS.

The above just based on my experience. As you were.

dude change your fluids and ride. That is a total rip off. 120 for an oil change is a rip as well.
Old    Mikey (spoondog)      Join Date: Feb 2008       03-05-2008, 9:12 AM Reply   
The first 100 hr tuneup requires alot of checks because they are making sure there aren't defective parts or bad assembly from the manufacturer. Seems like they should flip the bill for that. After that change your fluids and ride like matt put it. .

This is out of the MC Manual for 100 hour service.

Have an Engine Tune-Up Performed
A complete engine tune-up, including replacement of the PVC valve,
spark plugs, distributor cap, rotor and ignition wires (if needed) should be
performed annually. Also, some engines require adjustments for spark, dwell
and idle. All of these functions require special knowledge, tools and test
equipment.
For this reason, MasterCraft strongly recommends having the engine
tune-up performed by your dealer.

Glad my Yukon can go 100,000 miles between tune-ups!

My guess is that if you don't do all of this and keep receipts they would void the engine warranty.

We paid somewhere in the $400-450 range. $720 is way steep. I hope they filled your gas tank, and cleaned your windshield for that price!
