Not really there have been a couple of pictures of Broken saddles on race boats regurgitated by numptys that have never actually owned an Etec and seem to have some sort of chip about them however the engines don't have a rep for broken brackets. If they were that bad why would P1 race boats have chosen them for all their boats and now the new G2 for the new P1 ribs.

As you say Google any outboard hard enough and you will find horror stories. Look at the Yamaha 350 flywheel issue that leads to the crank snapping or Yamaha outboard corrosion issues that affected a number of the four stroke range.

Perhaps the title of this thread should be "who would buy an outboard" much more appropriate... !

And if you think they are bad, don't search for inboards or drive legs!

Anyone for a mast and sails?
