i know for sure i never hit anything the first time it happened i was told you must have reversed into a wall with it on a trailer with no damage to leg or prop . it would be nice to go out and not have to think is the engine ok . you buy a new engine for peace of mind two breaks in less than a year

Is the engine only 1 year old ? If so you need to talk to evinrude uk or a dealer and tell them you want it replacing under warranty.

If it's still under warranty then you can take to any approved dealer to get it sorted.

100% agree Steve...I didn't relise it was still under warranty.
Steve at Race Marine in Taunton is a Main Agent Dealership AND a straight shooter....I'm sure he will tell you how to proceed if you give him a Bell
