Evinrude Outboard Engine Repair

If you’re in the market for a new Evinrude outboard engine repair, you’ve got a lot of choices. From your trade-in value to financing, you’ll want to weigh the pros and cons of each option before making a final decision. Often, a new motor is the biggest single purchase you will make for your boat. The total cost, including installation and fuel, will be in the thousands of dollars.

Evinrude’s theme is that their engines need less maintenance and will allow you to spend more time on the water. This has been met with a chorus of attacks from other manufacturers and their fanbois who are not happy about this perceived threat to their profits.

Powering Up: Evinrude Outboard Engine Repair Demystified

It’s important to remember that there is a general trend in any market that goods that provide more utility will cost more. The more power an engine produces, the more it will typically cost to operate. Regardless of whether it’s an outboard or a car, this is true.

What is interesting about these attacks is that the critics are actually inventing characteristics of the E-TEC that are not true and attacking those. They are acting as if they have first-hand experience with the engine and that their opinion is superior to that of the manufacturer.

For example, the criticism of the E-TEC’s 300-hour maintenance schedule is based on the assumption that the other manufacturers are also recommending maintenance intervals that are way too long. It would be far easier for them to take a risk and recommend shorter intervals, but they don’t because they are not interested in competing on price alone and want to remain competitive in quality and performance.
