Loss of all transmission fluid

An interesting thing happened while out this past weekend. Our Perkins 4-154 with a Borg-Warner 71CR after heating up lost all transmission fluid into the bildge leaving us without any forward gear. After being towed back to the dock and filing the fluid again, all is well.

There was no wind and we had been running it at a higher RPM than normal to check for engine heating issues. We have only had this boat for less than 6 months so we are still finding these "issues".

Any thoughts or has this happened to anyone else?
