Confirmed that there is some weird stuff with it going back to the primary weapnon. I am looking at the item def and I don't see anything that would cause that. I can get it to stick on the secondary weapon too. Sometimes on tanks this happens as well.
This is the item def below.

So after further testing. It seems to switch to what ever weapon form you used to at the time you connect to a weapon. So if I knife is in your hands you connect to the m60. Then get off of it. It then switches back to a knife. So you hit 3 to change to your primary. You now sit on the boat. Get off the boat. It goes back to the knife.

It is a bug in how the weapon switchings happens in the EXE and doesn't reset after each sit down. Only the last weapon you connected to.

So I can run over to the 50 cal on land. Hit 2 for secondary before connecting to it. Then when I get off of it, it then switches back to 2. Then I hit 3 to go to primary weapon. I then go over to the zodiac sit in the drivers seat then leave the seat it goes back to 2 secondary. It is what ever weapon you had in your hand at the time of the last weapon connect.

Its a shame that it doesn't reset per sitting as well. Then you would have what ever weapon you left off with prior to sitting.

Well that would depend. If you switch to your main before you connect to a weapon. Then you don't have to click it again to go to your main weapon ;-)

I must be missing something here . . . regardless of what weapon I had when I attach to anything, whenever I detach I always end up with my primary weapon. I have my weapons selection keys on the numeric keypad so I don't know if that makes a difference or not.

To test this you need to switch to something other than your primary weapon.
Connect to will say the m60 or another weapon. Shoot a round or two.

Then disconnect from that weapon.

Change back to your primary weapon.

Sit in a zodiac like your going to drive it.

Get out of the zodiac.

See if it goes to primary or the last weapon you had when connected to a weapon.

I did this test for slot 5 stinger.

When I got out of the boat. My stinger came up and not the primary weapon.

So in other words, just make sure you have your primary weapon in your hands before you attach to the boat... simple!
