    Does anyone think Evinrude may restart with outboards? Is there any rumors of it being for sale? Just wondering. I find it hard to believe that it would close the doors forever.

    Evinrude was less than 3% of bombardiers business. I can see why they closed it.

    Yes there are rumors they are coming back. Rumors that they will come back with the "Ghost" outboard that is kind of like an I/O jet outboard sort of thing. Also rumors they will come out with a 4-stroke. Their Wisconsin plant is supposedly back open and cranking out pontoon boats with the ghost engine.

    All rumors from me though I have nothing to back it. I think Evinrude is "ghosting" us...

    I would love to see an Evinrude comeback, but I'm not holding my breath. More competition in the industry would mean more innovation. I'd really love to see a resurgence of 2-strokes for the lighter weight and better hole shot. Although I believe the E-tech was almost as heavy as a 4-stroke thanks to the government mandated emissions junk.
