Does the point exist where any of the engine manufacturers finally say - "sorry sir, we know we have completely messed up your boating season and we are going to do something more for you than explain why it is all your fault, or tell you that we have never seen that before, or work out how to fix things as cheap as possible" etc etc? It is quite sickening sometimes to read the pretty regular stories on here about people losing virtually entire seasons as manufacturers (engines and boats) try to work out how to minimize the cost to themselves at the expense of their customer. Adam9066's post above says it all. He is pleasantly surprised to find that his boat is even getting looked at within a week of dropping it off. Usually not top priority because it isn't making the best money for anyone to do the work.

[QUOTE=BCPD199;10851499]There's been no shortage of threads comparing one O/B to another one. This isn't a comparison thread. I just want to know if you own or have owned the new Gen2 Evinrudes and your satisfaction with them. Only first hand knowledge. I don't want to know about your uncle's friend's brother-in-law that had one blow up. Only owners or past owners.

Getting ready to build another boat and the G2 250 H.O. or G2 300 is beginning to pick up my interest. I have one itís a 2018 250 so far itís a pile of junk it has 144 hrs and has been in the shop more than I have had it fouls plugs constantly and now has a stuck wide open injector also sets knock codes I hope this answers your question

Have your serial number handy, BRP Rep will likely be wanting it.

If you really have a G2 that you describe as a pile of junk, why would even consider purchasing another one? I have two G2 300's since 2017 and couldn't be happier. Don't want anything else on my transom. My advice to you is to buy a Yamaha 4-stroke and read the owner's manual carefully so you become familiar with the numerous service items the manufacturer requires every year. That way, you won't have to blame Yamaha, which like every other brand, has put out some great outboards and some real duds.

Yes. More often than you might suspect. By all of the motor makers.

We seldom here from those owners. We mostly hear, over and over again, from other owners.

Yes. I know that I am replying to an old message.
