We bought our Chaparral a year ago and this was about the 5th time on the water. Pulling into the boat slip, put boat in neutral and prop continued to run and then shifted into reverse and the boat took off forward full throttle and ran up onto the slip! Yanked safety cord off and boat still ran. Key did not even turn boat off. Thankfully, no one was hurt just the boat banged up. Once on the slip, turned on, prop runs in neutral and now doesn't move in reverse and won't even shift into forward gear. It is a good thing we were not on the lake tubing otherwise the boat could of killed someone. I am thoroughly disappointed in this Chaparral. This is my second Chaparral boat and the only reason we went with one again is that we had no problems with our previous boat ( we had for 8 years) and this is the second problem in just 12 months and this could have turned out much worse than it did. Anyone else having issues like this?
