Getting spare parts, OMG Covid issues

 cant believe how much the supply chain has been disrupted.

My ETC 115 has a fuel leak in the fuel/vapour seperator and obviously is unuseable.

Made me think of getting a 4S motor as Evinrude has gone toe-up. Cant get a 115 4S of the preferred brand until 2021!! So thats out if I want to be on the water for Xmas and crabbing in Mandurah.

Have been waiting for 9 weeks so far for the replacement Evinrude part and no news despite calls ++ to the Service centre. They cant even get an estimate about when.

Getting itchy feet as I have a brand new Humminbird to test and setup that havent even seen a drop of water.

Anyone else in this situation.

 Don't know what's worse .

 Don't know what's worse . Having a boat just sitting there that can't be used or having a boat 1600ks away and cant use it. 

It's been a right pain all round. I have customers here in hedland that have been waiting on stuff for months . Hopefully things will start to get back to normal soon . .
