    Evinrude killed off

    And they’re blaming it on the corona. At least the final nail. The evinrude name has been around for a zillion years and brp is pulling the plug on it.

    Damn. Johnson Evinrude was THE SHIT for as long as I can remember.

      Buddy had an Evinrude snowmobile with a rotary in it. I never knew such a thing existed.

        I've always liked Evinrude. Been running them since I was a kid and have owned many of them since. Mercury was good but I put a lot of faith in Evinrudes with some of the trips I've been on

          I’ve still never been around a modern one. I’ve heard they’re the shit on a pontoon, and would’ve considered it if I ever bought one. From what I can tell, they’ve got a very solid rep, but very little market penetration.

            My dad still has a 17 foot 1980 glastron with an evinrude outboard in it. Runs like a top. This sucks to hear.

              I think they’ve only been factory installed on bass and pontoon boats the last several years which I think is a lot of their problem, they just aren’t coming out on many new boats. I’ve owned a half dozen OMCs and grew up around them. I still own a 130 evinrude and a 25 Johnson on my two boats. I’m sorry to see the brand die, even if it really wasn’t the same company the past 20 years.

                I had an 18 horsepower Evinrude outboard from 1972. It was great once I got the ignition all sorted out and everything. The old guy that worked on it said he didn't like any of the new boat motors they were all junk in his eyes. Old guys tend to say stuff like that though .

                  Unfortunately, Evinrude hasn't been relevant since the late '80s after Mercury cleaned their clock in ModVP and other outboard racing....The Ficht fuel injection was the nail in the coffin. BRP brought their tech into it but it was too little too late. All Hail Mercury

                    Unexpected but not too surprising considering their small market share. I've heard BRP has been working on something called "Project Ghost". It sounds reminiscent of the Force L drive which uhh.. sucked.

                        I got one too! Runs awesome but sounds like farts. No two stroke smell on your clothes either. Goes like a Corolla on bald tires in the deep snow.

                              It's small and smells bad, but that has nothing to do with boat motors.
