2015 Ranger Z117 2014 Mercury 115 hp DFI. I hit a log, no physical damage other than scuff marks on the foot. I was at full throttle and the engine never died. It was a really hard lick. After that my electrical system seemed to be shorting out. Example, all rocker switches on the dash would dimly light up with all switches off. Bilge pump ran with switch off. Running lights worked like they should except rocker switch lighting up with switch off. Interior lights would blink when boat was in motion. Turned main power off to battery and trailered home. Turned power back on once parked and everything worked normal, all pumps off and lighting on switches normal. Pulled outside and hooked up water hose and started engine, all seemed normal. Water pumping thru, all switch functions work. Have a tournament tonight and hopefully it's all good. I just wonder what the heck happened.
