Re: Evinrude 115 ficht outboard motor

I bought a new 115 Ficht Evinrude in April, 2000 along with a new boat. It was warranted for 2 years and while I did not know about the technology, the warranty eased my mind.

Last Saturday, I was running at near full throttle and the power just quit. I restarted the motor and it clunked for about 5 seconds and locked up.

It appears that the block is cracked--no horns or lights came on, motor serviced and operated by the book. I have owned it for 17 months--used about twice a month in warm weather.

Anyone else having this type of problem? I learned in September that OMC had gone under and that Bombadier was only covering 2000 and up, voiding what should be under warranty for me.
