Do I chance it?
I would but then I've owned a couple. If you look after it and get it fitted by a reputable dealer it will be a good engine for the boat.
If its a new one it should have a 5 year warranty and the Evinrude warranty is a good one and does not decline.
I currently have a Honda, it is a nice and reliable engine however I still would rather have a "rude" hanging off the transom
