Have you looked in the Etec owners forum? Might be more ammo on there

Sorry to hear that! But don't give up...plenty of stuff here and on line to back your claim up!
Just trying to Palm you off by the sounds of it!...Hoping you will claim on insurance.

Trading standards would be a next step....Warranty??...Merchantable goods...and Fit for purpose???

Who's told you they won't entertain it, your dealer or BRP themselves, don't be fobbed off. Is the motor still under warranty?

Assuming you have insurance, did you take the legal protection option?

I definitely wouldn't give up I'd imagine warranty departments are encouraged to save money if they can but I'd imagine when pushed they would have to pay up

One common failure doesn't make the whole brand lemons plenty of cars on the road have common failures.

With anything mechanical there is going to be a point where something will break ,the weakest link, and it stands to reason the same part will likely fail in a lot of instances
Outboard manufacturers are constantly trying to make things lighter so they have lightest in class etc sometimes they will get things a little too light and should be big enough to admit it and sort the failures foc

Hope you get it sorted and I'd definitely keep on the case and don't let them off the hook

I was with Kerny when his broke as stated.
Again on a New engine in exactly the same place on the same 60hp rated engine ..which was still early into warranty!
It was on a calm day with absolutely no stress ( why that should matter,to me is beside the point anyway!) other than propelling the 5m RIB...IT WAS DESIGNED FOR.
I believe he had a few shenanigans from BRP too although it was sorted under warranty in the end.
I'd pm him for info.
The fact it's the second time it's failed on yours only lends weight that there is a fundamental fault in the design/manufacturing process.

i will learn from this , i will not buy evinrude again . the engine was very good but i am always out with the same mate who has a mariner , same weight same conditions his is just older . the first time it broke it was on the bottom where the trim and tilt pivot . the second time it went through the hole thats in the bracket . i dont know why its there it must weaken it . the biggest problem is that you do not know its happened and it damages the trim and tilt rod which requires the whole unit to be replaced and bends the other saddle which has to be replaced . 2000 pound to repair an engine that cost just over 5000 is steep . i will see what my insurance say and if they will not pay i will try taking legal action .
