    As long as my arsehole points to the ground (I sleep on my back) I will not buy another BRP product,looks to be a whole line of Australian products about to be bastardised.

    i wonder if they will force quintrex dealers to fit etecs as they cant force them to buy them fitted as transporting smaller boats they stack them for cheaper freight ?.
    i guess if you want more market share or greater brand acceptance you have to take these measures

    ill never buy another quintrex new if forced to have a etec

    Telwater have been the Australian distributor for Evinrude for over 3 years now anyway....I recently got a quote for just a Yellowfin hull and trailer/no motor....so I don't see why that would change...they are not going to not sell a boat and trailer just because the customer doesn't want an EtecÖ.however you would think they may offer better incentives to dealers and customers to put more Etecs on the back of Telwater boats...just like the specials recently and the 10 yr warranty..

    So the second rate Telwater joins with the globally suffering BRP......some number crunching ahead.

    10 year's warranty that in it's self should sell a Etec shit that Etec i just had would still be under warranty had it been a 10 year reassurance

    Stevej would u rather them unstack the boats, transport them individually than charge the purchaser more just because it were singly towed from A to B? they are reducing cost on shipping so there workmanship doesn't

    Their is nothing wrong with stacking boats on a big trailer for shipping if the boat arrives in normal new condition than what's the fuss?

    Hey Chimo,
    My 2010 130 gen1 Etec has been serviced from Downes marine with currently 800 odd hours on her. Not one issue. Iím looking at the gen2 150 next year for a re-power do you know something about the gen2 service that others donít in regards to service providers?
    Just donít want to spend the coin if the service for the gen2ís wonít be local.

    You hit the nail on the head regarding your dealer.

    If you have a good one then there appears to be no reason to avoid Etecs as the BRP warranty support is claimed to be pretty good.

    The next question is really about the dealer up north who is proposed to be used. I know nothing about him / her so cannot comment.

    Glad to hear you are having a good run with yours Ducksnutz, now with the proposal by BRP to buy Telwater perhaps the training of techs will be easier and even more local ( I didn't know it wasn't local at the moment, do they have to travel to Canada or the US now?)

    What HP G2 are you looking at ?

    I do not think transport is the reason they don't force dealers ATM. The reason is, currently many Quintrex dealers are dealers for other brands of motors. Those dealers have exclusive arrangements for those motors (i.e. just like you don't see new Ford cars and Holden cars sold at the same car dealership). I can't see that changing with the motor arrangements.

    Yep.

    Just don't miss a payment!

    Heard some horror stories.

    Bit like the interest free payment plans from some retailers.

    All good while payments are made on time, in full.

    First default, and interest rates jack up (by way of huge fees and charges for 'administration'), from there on your chasing ya tail.

    A mate had finance for his outbound a few years ago. List his job, missed a payment by 3 days. Kept paying, but had to sell his boat due to job loss. Cone time to settle to clear debt for clear title to buyer, he finds out he owes more than his motor cost ... After paying it off for 3 years! Explaination was due that one missed payment, the ongoing fees and charges (interest disguised as admin fees) had been slightly more than his monthly payment.

    So, yeah, just watch the 'easy' finance option.
