I cannot blame you for being frustrated and aggravated at this time. Please accept our apologies for the experiences that you have encountered.

 

Please ask your dealer to contact his Evinrude Dealer Support Team right away about the motor's issues. Also please send the engine serial number in an email to  brp.care@brp.com with your contact information and a brief description of the engine history. They will look into the situation for you.

 

 

Again I am sorry for the inconveniences that you had to put up with and Evinrude will do everything they can to get you back on the water quickly, the engine operating as it should, and to keep you as a satisfied customer.

 

Don't forget to compare that serial number that you gave us to the one on the motor, please.

[ Edited ]

 

The very early production  G2 outboards were limited to certain specific hydraulic helms but later models were changed to accept any popular hydraulic steering helm.  There was a recall for a select number of engines back then to check the internal steering stystems, it was for a limited serial number range and subsequent engines, like yours, are not affected.
