Its the dealer you need to have discuss the faults with BRP there is little point in you trying to deal with them directly as they will need a dealer to confirm what the problems are.
It was your dealer that suggested the meeting at the boat show then pulled out at the last minute, had you previously spoken to Mike Loach ? because I suspect that he knows nothing about this and I knew several months ago that BRP would not be attending the boat show so it sounds to me like your dealer is taking the piss.
It has already been suggested on here that you need to try another dealer and yet you don't appear to have heeded this advice.
Some of the problems you have mentioned such as a chaffing loom will be due to poor rigging so perhaps this is why your dealer is not to keen to take the issues to BRP as they will just bounce the claim back onto the dealer.Also if you are having repeat problems with oil seals etc then it does not sound like its been fixed properly. There are some really SHITE outboard mechanics out there
I have never had any issues with getting warranty work completed by my dealer in Taunton.
Whenever I see these kind of posts I am always suspicious of why people do not appear to be taking any advice but just continuing to bash the manufacturer in the hope of getting more warranty etc.
It's not my intention to be bashing anybody but I have spoke to Mike Loach on several occasions and he is well aware of the problems I've been having with my engine.
As for taking my engine to another dealer the marine industry in Ireland is very small and Marine Motors in Cork is the only Evinrude dealer I know off although there may be one in Dublin but this is a considerable distance away.
BRP were not at the show but Mike Loach had been but didn't bother to return my call.
I'd love to be able to take some of the advice people have been giving but unfortunately I'm not in a position to do so as we don't have numerous dealers etc... I'm just very unhappy with my engine and the service I feel I've had. My dealer gave me the contact details for BRP and suggested i talk with them directly which I have done on numerous occassions but I still have not got the problems resolved.
