I wonder if it could be hidden within a semi-trailer? Hopefully these thieves aren't that bright.
Good luck in finding it. I'll keep an eye out for it here in Montana.

I've had nothing but a positive experience on the Etec Owners website. A good group of people.
They just separate the BS rather quickly so some are offended. Not intended for the OP.

I bought a used boat (not a BW) with a 115HP G1 E-Tec on it. The boat was discounted enough IMO to warrant the risk. So far the engine has performed flawlessly over the last year and a half.

I would buy an E-Tec only if offered at a dramatic savings. And I say this as a satisfied G1 115HP owner.

A man can dream.

OP - You have a lot of "lines in the sand". We won't do this, we won't do that. Nobody wants to overpay but I think you need to increase your flexibility. Particularly travel times to inspect.
