Friends are plentiful and life is good.Dig a little deeper into the motor and you'll see
my side of the story.Problems continued well
after 01 and Bombadier isn't backing them up.

I own a pair of 2000 200 HP and its people with that mind set that have made it a nightmare for me to sell (in addition to a lousy broker). I have dug deeper, I have talked to countless, dealers and mechanics over the last 3 years. Yes there have been alot of bad experiences and I will attest to that, but not every engine was affected. Last time at the mechanic they had a clean bill of health.

In the early nineties ficht engines had problems with engines,at least in N.C. where I lived,caused by slow trolling for kings with higher horse motors and Evinrude rectified and stood behind them.I have not heard of any great problems before and after new owner.

Sorry Phish, I must have touched a deep sore nerve for you to be sending me private threatening e-mails.Let's let the subject die
and talk about happier things like the coming
of spring or something.

Not to take Gradyladys side or nothing but everything I read about FICHTs was that was the reason OMC is no more....
But hey Im using an Optimax on my Mako...... so who am I to judge about POS marine issues.......

FICHT is the reason that OMC is no more, it doesnt mean that they are all bad. If I didnt own 2 of them, I would probably think the same thing.
