Default 2012 60 e tec still in shop

My 2012 60 e tec still in shop since july 13th, the last day me and jason cooper slayed the giant red snapper. It has been at 3 dealers for a total of about 12 weeks out of 5 months. It broke down ist trip and has limped in every trip . They finally got out to do a water test last week, duplicated problem, but no codes. I have been talking to factory also, damn, i miss my boat, and wish i had left my 2009 motor on boat which ran super. I have not been fishing since july 13th, i guess its a good time to be in shop with bad weather and heart attack. How long is too long for a new motor in shop. There is a lemon law in fla for cats and dogs, but not boat motors. If you buy a piece of shit, (new), you still have to pay for it no matter how long u dont get to use it. Name:  Kyzersimmons3.jpg

Why dont they just replace it with a new one? They can send yours back to the factory. I feel for you I'm moving and have 2 boats and neither have been wet for weeks.

I don't think you're complaining loud enough. Explain why it's been to THREE dealers instead of just the purchase/install place please.

Its hard to believe its been over a month. Have they zeroed in on any problems yet? Seems that technology has bit that outboard in the butt. So many variables that can cause that, its mind boggling. When I looked at one at the dealer, I could not believe the amount of sensors and wiring under the cowling.

Charlie, let me know when its done, and I can pick you up so we can get it back to your house if you do not have someone to bring her home.

I saw that boat at Will's Marine recently. I remembered it because i gave them a 7 gallon bucket of ice for their fish out close to the "Brass Wreck" awhile back.

I hate to hear that. It is pure infurating to have to deal with the same issue over and over. Seems that some of the etecs have gremlins in their ignition systems as you are not the first person I have heard about that has constant issues with etecs. Hopefully they will resolve this to your satisfaction.
