Re: 60 HP E-TEC 2013 WORST ENGINE I EVER HAD

thanks for your comment.  the engine is at the authorized service center and I already ordered a YAMAHA 70 HP to replace the E-tec crap.  once it's fixed I will burn it I guess......

Re: 60 HP E-TEC 2013 WORST ENGINE I EVER HAD

I feel your pain. I've been an eventude guy for many year with no complaints. I bought a boat a year ago with an old Finich on it and knew that motor had all kinds of problems. I looked into getting a new 300 etec and then cam across a used 2014 owned by Charles Walgreen. So I bought it and had it installed might have saved 3500 by the time it was all said and done. Then power head blew within first 10 hours. Warranty covered it and new power head and life is great. Made some fishing plans for 4th July and on the way in from fishing Thursday it just shuts off while running and doesnt't start and I get towed in again. Weekend plans are ruined and I'm pissed. I should have just kept the Finch, same **bleep** different day and would have been thousands less. I talked to many about 2 motors versus one before repower as I was planning to run over to the Bahamas a few times during the summer. Everyone said 90% of the time it's a fuel problem and it dosen't matter how many motors you have. Well no way in hell I feel safe crossing now. Weekend is now ruined and I'm thinking I made a really bad decision. 20 hours in the water and a month or more in the shop seems to be the pattern.

I agree.  I purchased one new in 2014 and have had to replace computer once, injectors twice, coils twice.  Engine has only 320hrs.

if you are looking for an outboard look at anything other than evinrude
