well they may have just substantiated your insurance claim, if you have legal cover with your boat insurance then let them fight it out.

Pretty shit customer service but if you totally draw a blank it could be that your insurance could foot the bill from hitting said sand bank
I don't think for a minute that evinrude should be let off the hook but if all else fails better coming out of insurance coffers than your own pocket

agree with the above, that is just evinrude at it, that is clearly a defect whether in design or material choice and others have had the same problems to back that up.

perhaps this is why they now offer 10 year warranties, not very difficult to offer one, paying out on it is a different thing!

however, you did "hit" a sandbank and if you have under water coverage (not all polices do) then just call your insurance and get it fixed.

If that's the case, then I reckon about 75% of engines should have broken brackets according to the shite Evinrude spout ....

Disgusting after sales service from Evinrude and using the missing paint on your skeg and prop is a feeble excuse if I've ever heard one. Who hasn't got paint missing on them

In the Etec handbook it's does stipulate that the engine has a feature that if the leg hits a submerged object it automatically trips up so stopping the damage what they say has caused the break in the first place .

I would copy and paste my post on here of my transom saddle breaking and also T.S.M'S as well as proof that there is an underlying fault with some of their 60 Etecs. I'm sure that the last thing they want is bad publicity.......a bit like United Airlines at the moment

Regards,

Kerny.

You might want to see if you can find a friendly university metallurgy department who will identify the mode of failure. There may be a cost, evinrude should agree that who ever is wrong pays that cost.

Totally agree with poly get it tested its an exact science and will tell if it's cast metal failure.
