Evinrude Servicing Intervals
I'm interested in viewing a boat with a 2007 Evinrude 175hp on the back that's done 331 hours. I've asked the vendor whether he has a comprehensive service history for the engine to which he replied: 'yep, serviced just the once in March 2013 when it had completed 300 hours'.
So, for someone buying a new Evinrude the 300 hours until first service is a powerful sales feature but for someone like myself considering a pre-owned one, it kind of seems 'wrong'. The engine has been serviced once in it's life, is out of warranty and to my cynical mind, probably going to need a bundle of tlc (cash) anytime soon.
Or am I completely wrong?
