Spirit of inverclyde?
Race boat lots of brackets get broken (amongst other things) during racing
If ferrari blows an engine in f1 does it bear any relationship to a road going ferrari
I think not!

Blimey. Straight in on the defence. Surely if it's designed for racing thats what it should be capable of ? ( or not)

It's a stock engine as it's a one design class

1 broke out of roughly 7 boats, not a very good ratio in my humble opinion ....

You could say 6 out of 7 boats survived a pounding in a race environment with stock engines and only one breakage.
In most motorsports you wouldn't be surprised at one retirement out of a field of 7 starters
They aren't new boats having all done rounds in the states hardly warrants an evinrude slagging thread
And no I don't own one!

If the information is correct......3 boats retired with bracket failure.

Have to say, my Evinrude has not missed a beat, but then the majority of engines don't miss a beat, if used as they should be used.


Failures in a race does not constitute a wholesale issue with the brand or the reliability.

Totally agree I get fed up with all the brand knocking. in a tough environment any engine will break if driven to the max
The clever bit for the drivers is to drive fast but not fast enough to break something

Who is knocking the brand?
I merely asked a simple question ....
