Great on the recorded for future reference water pressure numbers.
Your temperatures look great.  Test again with heavy load 5>10 miles before heading far out.
Not fun running back in 50 miles to the dock with overheating motors.

Noticed this on SB motor.
137 | 21 | 59:52 | 242:36 | Vapor Separator Low Fuel Level detected
21 occurrences is high.  May be fuel line/fuel filter/tank pickup restriction.
Some of early G2s had to have external inline fuel pumps added between the fuel tank and motor do to fuel draw design problems. 
I would have the dealer shop run fuel line vacuum restriction vacuum tests on both motors. Requires WOT test, max fuel draw.

Also, SB motor has seen 219d F max motor temperature, that's hot.


Thanks Steelhead.
The pics of my impellers may not show it well, but there was more “smearing” of the rubber as opposed to chunks and bits being made, so I’m hoping that there would not be much contamination with rubber bits left in the system.
Anyhow, wouldn’t the back flush be a standard, normal procedure any competent tech would do in a case like this? Why would I have to specifically request it?

I’ll keep a printout of the Water Pressure numbers on this post on the boat to remind me where they should be to help notice if there are changes.

Regarding the code 137’s, it was a factory defect that was corrected last year. The dealer showed me a service bulletin from BRP that described how some of the motors left the factory with flashing left in the Cooling water holes leading to the VST, which made the VST throw off a code 137, especially after extended idle due to insufficient water flow. They reamed out the flashing, replaced the VST and I believe (and hope) that it’s all fixed now.

If I post a warranty claim number, can the status of the claim be looked up?

The highly experienced and E. trained techs, shop owners and the long term outboard owners/users/DIYers on here have supported many Evinrude owners in their warranty claims with BRP E. when based upon obvious install/service failure by dealer shops or where there is a known new engineering product defect.  Been millions of BRP/E. offical WP impellers ran/stored around the world in hot tropical climates. 
No melted impellers from high climate heat.

I have fried a few due to operator head space, running through thick kelp seaweed, plastic bags, starting the motors tilted out of the water, running through mud/sand, etc., revving the motors on the flush hose.
Had to pay for those

Good luck in your endeavor.

The dealer that files the claim is the only one that can see any details about that claim.

How long is the warranty on this thread? Is there an expiration date?

Yes I agree, I think this has run it's course. Best of luck with the claim. I am going to need to make sure my stock of impellers for all brands is good too because two days ago we had Australia hottest day on record and today it is in the mid to high 40 degrees C (113F) so if the OP's theory is correct I am guessing some impellers will melt standing still in the water pump housing out in the hot sun.
