Longest warranty in marine history and its included at no addl charge. No other outboard manufacturer in history has offered a warranty this long at any cost. You dont do that with a poorly designed product.

Morning run out of the channel. 5 big guys. 180 gallons of fuel. 240 pounds of ice. Full 40 gallon live well blacked out. Probably 500 pounds of gear at least. Beer, food, etc. Calm water in the channel, but economy stayed the same once we got outside and got better as we burned off the fuel. 300 hours so far and no major problems. I run twin 200ho motors with 18 pitch Rx4 blades.

I know a good many g1 and g2 owners that have put thousands of hours and not one emm failure . I know there have been some but to call systemic is not factual . I had over 3500 hrs on a pair of 200 HO engines (over 7000 combined hours ) and a 115 e tec with over 600 hrs no problems . Several of my friends fish for a living and as I said earlier no problems .

so when were you in "the "game" ? did ya get a touchdown?
i am asking because i am told in yamaha time that an engine from 2005 has exceeded its useful life. especially when the exhaust stack and block rotted out. now mind you this was on a engine that also had 2 ecu failures. the first one the computer thought it was a twin engine setup and continuously sounded the alarm. the second was a ignition driver failure that left me looking at a tow line.
so my question to you is why do you hold a 17 year old motor and design from 1 manufacturer to a different standard than another? by the way i am extremely happy with the performance and reliability of both of my g-2's and of brp's support with 1 warranty claim. when i broke the fitting for the gearcase reservoir off.

The EMM has never been cooled by fuel. It is water cooled.

Only to you everyone else knows thay a poorly designed product is incentivized by other means such as a lower cost or financing incentives to name a few.

None but know several people who did and it was not nearly a trouble free experience.

I suspect the longest warranty in marine history is more about trying to further sales than it is about expressing the quality of a product. A gamble is being taken that future sales can be used to pay for warranty costs. By any engine maker.

Company's don't generally do stuff for the benefit of the consumer. They do stuff for the benefit of the company. If the consumer wins a bit, so be it. Bump the price of a product up by whatever amount it takes to include a feature that the consumer wants, to include a bit of profit from that feature. If sales don't suffer then both the company and the consumer win.

There are costs for both extending the base warranty and for including a service contract. Those costs are embedded within the price of the product. Same with a propeller. Motors do not come with a propeller from Evinrude. If a propeller is on the motor when the motor is delivered to the buyer the costs for the propeller will be within the contract price. Not much in life is truly free.

The latest BRP financial data does not indicate that a quality product and the longest warranty and extended service contract in history are doing much to improve sales. Maybe they will come up with another scheme.

The longest warranty in marine history is absolutely an incentive to sell and you will hear zero arguments from me on that. My point is that if they had a poorly designed product as some have suggested they would absolutely not incentivize with a warranty they would use lower pricing or financing. A warranty would be the nail in the coffin

One thing I do find amusing is how the fanboys say only a percentage of Evinrudes have computer issues so don't lump them all together. Yet a small percentage of certain model and year Yamahas had a legitimate corrosion issue yet the fanboys say yamahas corrode and rot. Pick a lane fanboys !

That's funny, and shows that you are one of the THT cowboys who has no eTec experience, but once talked to a neighbor's cousin that told you . . . . . . . . . . . . . about an G2 - so now we know why you always post in the G2 threads. Oh, and like my post here, what value to you add to the discussion of G2's, since all you do is repeat rumors?

Yet you still troll EVERY Etec thread, trashing them, offering no help and contributing nothing but dumb ass comments. Something tells me, you really want to own an Etec.

I hate to derail yet another wonderful E-thread...But i see a depth reading on that screen is that really built in to the lower unit? Or is that just communicating with an external unit?

My guess is that there is an Ethernet cable tied in that brings in other data - could be a bunch of other stuff that would also be available on that screen.

Most likely.. i know you can monitor your motors through your depth finder i just didn't know it works the other way around. It would be something if you can tell exactly how close your lower unit is to the bottom...Then again i hate to learn something here..
