Rumor has it that some folks are really die-hard fans.  If I can't get an E-TEC for my transom, I guess the boat isn't needed either.  [wink]

Another fishing trip ruined before it started by a blown Yammie.



BPR upper management wasn't happy that their expensive Manatu BRP owned toon boat line buyers and other boat lines owned by BRP boat buyers did not all want E-TEC motors.  Couldn't force them into buying E-TECs, so buyers went to other brands that sold  what the buyers wanted on the transom.
Same stupid arrogant management tactics that blew OMC out of the market into bankruptcy court with all their over leverage boat brands that private equity companies secretly owned and calls the shots on.

Neither OMC or BRP upper management understood or tried to learn the repower market.  Most boats outlast several motors when maintained.  We boat owners are a proud free will crowd.

Setting on massive internal borrowed expansion dept and the private equity owners making all the business decisions.

These morons could not run a profitable whore house in Vegas.  Even if it's called Ghost Casino

When this E-TEC goes on its last fishing trip, I'll be moving on to the Last Made in USA outboard, Mercury.

Nice vid, but with an unhappy ending.  You've probably seen worse, but never saw a LU blow out almost like there was a grenade in it.  [frown]

Single 300 Evinrude would've probably gotten that boat up on plane for the return...

Not to knit-pick, but video he says "the pitfalls of offshore fishing". Yet I see land on BOTH sides of the boat within swimming distance. I could get them a pizza delivered to them.
