Evinrude JD Power Award Winner

Recommended Posts

Here is the artical i saw on bass fan. What does everyone think about this?

It's been a big day for the J.D. Power and Associates awards at the Miami International Boat Show. Although BassFan previously reported that the Mercury OptiMax was rated Highest in Customer Satisfaction Two-Stroke Outboard Engines, that award was actually a tie, and the Evinrude E-Tec shares the distinction.

Mike Kennedy, VP of North American outboard engine sales at BRP, accepted the award. "This award is very significant for Evinrude and right in line with results of our own consumer surveys conducted in the fall," he said.

Roch Lambert, VP and GM of outboard marine engines at BRP, said: "With only 4 years in the marketplace, Evinrude E-Tec has reached the top of the customer-satisfaction ranking faster than any outboard engine ever has."

Also notable is that Evinrude is the most improved two-stroke direct-injection product in its category. It increased 24 index points since last year, and gained a total of 46 index points in the past 2 years combined.

"Receiving this award demonstrates that our message about Evinrude E-Tec benefits has been heard among a growing segment of consumers looking to spend more time on the water," Lambert added.

In other Evinrude news, the company today announced a new series of props, and remote controls for the E-Tec. The addition of new propellers and enhancements to existing propellers include polished stainless steel for improved durability and longevity.

The new Rogue four-blade prop, available in five pitch sizes, is said to improve acceleration and

rough-water handling in the 40- through 115-hp E-Tecs. It's geared mainly toward flats boats. The Cyclone, Rebel and Viper props lines have all been expanded to include more pitch sizes in 1-inch increments.

    • Good yo hear from you again!  Hope your search for property goes well and your time in stand is fruitful.
    • Nice pics jbell! That is a nice yellow garden spider you got there.
    • I had a nice size garden spider on my garage door. It stayed there about 3 weeks. Had a mate who I assume did his business and met his doom. I finally needed to open the door so I safely caught it and let it go in the woods near our house.  Her body is about an inch long. Probably about 3 inches total.       
    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
