I still say the engine timing. This happened to me and i got all sorts of theories. The dealer can't duplicate it because even though they rev the engine there is no load. The fact that they checked all the bolts etc reaffirms to me that you should check the timing. I would get merc manual and a timing light. takes about 10-15 minutes and will cost you less than trips to the dealer.

Mystery may be solved
I had my father in law out with me and he noticed a ton of slop in the alternator belt at higher RPMS
Since I wasn't throtteling down as soon as the noise started the last couple of times there was a chance for some if the belt to build up on the alternator bracket
Yep at high RPMS the belt was starting to dance and the cogs of the belt were rubbing on the alternator bracket causing a vibration to travel to the alternator pulley and making the ratteling noise.
The belt wasn't what I would have called loose but I did tighten it up a bit and the last trip out the noise was gone!!!!!!!!

I'm glad you tracked this down. Thanks for posting this. I don't have this problem but I'm going to check mine just to make sure. Might want to call the service tech at the dealer and let him or her know what it was, just in case someone else has the same problem later.

weight distribution? Remember, this is a small boat and you level it with the cargo. My family knows exactly where to sit if they don't want the captain to get nasty. And yes, the cooler is on the ski locker!
If you still have to steer to one side after it's leveled your torque tab may not be adjusted correctly. On the other hand, every side current or wind will have the same effect. This isn't a car, whatever forces act on the boat will impact the direction.

Yuck, only 84F and cloudy with thunderstorms possible. No boating this weekend, to cold.
