Shop called and said that they found one of the problems.  The "complete block assembly" (this is the second one they ordered) from Evinrude came with bolts on one side that were loose so I was loosing compression.

You can't make this crap up.

Should I seek legal advise?

If you retain legal services, all communications stop, any offers are no longer valid, and your attorney can only talk with BRP attorneys. Everything ceases and you may be without your boat for quite a while.

Bill,

"All offers"  What offers?  I have not heard a peep out of Evinrude.

I've basiclly been without my boat since February of 2017.  Three years.

Do you have someone I can reach out to or could you have them contact me?

If you have legal council, we cannot converse with you. Your advisor should have explained that.

I have NOT retained counsel to pursue this matter at this time.  

I would love to have someone contact me with a reasonable solution.  

I will be sitting on the bank for another holiday.  This engine should have been replaced by the manufacture.

Your dealer is your main point of contact and they contact Evinrude dealer support if there is any type of situation that they cannot handle and the dealer files a case number with them. You can talk to  or email customer service and its best to have the case number handy as well as the  engine serial number but factory decisions normally go through the dealer as they are the ones who can do the troubleshooting and testing of the motor.
