I just got the G2 motor back from the the dealer after having a fuel pump issue resolved, which was covered under warranty. I never even had it back on the water after getting it back from the fuel pump repair. I was warned at that time that they were already seeing some issues with parts availability. I had a few other pretty minor warranty issues over the last 3 years that at that time were handled relatively quickly. This was the last straw for me with all that was going on with BRP pulling the plug. Evaluated selling the boat as is and ordering another Ranger but for me it made more sense to repower. There were so many relatively new glass boats with G2's hanging on them that were up for sale that I would have taken an even bigger beating in my opinion to sell it as a package. Reached out to a number of dealers for a repower quote. All but one would not even consider taking it on trade or even selling it on a consignment basis. In the end I did find a great dealer that was willing to work with me for what I felt was a more than fair trade in offer on the motor to be able to move on so I did.

Sounds like a smart move, cut your losses now, you'll make it up down the road

How about 77 hours and it has needed nothing but normal service?

It wouldn't be such a bad thing if people could believe an Evinrude didn't need servicing and be reliable for years and years as with a Yamaha. But no, an Evinrude owner can expect to need servicing and hope that BRP is living up to their promise to support their dealer network with parts and warranty service.

I had a 1978 Evinrude pancake 140 once - it needed its trim seals redone - there was but one spanner wrench in this area that was passed from dealership to dealership and the seals were very difficult to find. And that was when Evinrude was still in business.
