2005 50hp Evinrude 350 hours, is it not worth the risk with Etec's? (need quick advice)

I have read SO many problems with Etec's on here and other places, it worries me a lot, the used boat I am looking at has a 50hp model on it and only has serviced history for the last couple from an Evinrude shop.

So it seems the main issue is injectors?

Is this less common with smaller models or as common throughout?

Should I avoid buying this REALLY good boat because it has an Etec?

Im so use to servicing my own outboards, both 2s and 4s, but the Etecs sound complicated !

Just fretting as I do not want to buy a bomb waiting to happen. Need to decide in next few hours as he has other buyers etc.
