Is the Evinrude club a scam? I am my son both signed up a few weeks ago, I got an initial email welcoming me to the club and saying I could receive discounts and coupons for evirude products. Also said I would receive emails about new products and upcoming event. So far I have not been sent coupon cdes, news letters, nothing. It was free to join so I guess you get what you pay. I have owned Evinrudes and Johnsons for 36 years and find them to be great engines but I am no so thrilled with their club.
I'm told the Club notifies its members quarterly.

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.
The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
