your transmission life seems a bit low, like really bad, is it an MT or an Auto? do you do a lot of towing?

Did it give any warning?
Did both suffer the same problems?

very weird to keep going through that.
i'd install an aftermarket transmission cooler. very easy and very cheap, i do it to all of my automatics.
does the boat have a 8 inch thick cast iron hull?

The 4EAT is generally considered to be a reliable AT. Something is up with your car, driving style, or towing use. My concern? The next time your tranny takes a dump you'll be way out of warranty, and even a great dealer will have a hard time giving you a break.
BTW, I got 200,000 miles on my 99 Forester AT without a hiccup. I have a gross towing weight of about 2,000 pounds when I hook up my 19' sailboat.
I tend to put the AT in neutral at a stoplight, especially in hot weather. It's better to wear out the cheap shifter than let the engine and torque convertor fight against each other.

are they replacing the torque converter when they replace the trans? are they inspecting the flexplate too? i suspect they'd pick up on that if it had issues.
