UPDATE on Yamaha F225 Corroding Exhaust Housings

Get in line boys ... if anyone has a suspect corroded Yam OB!

FYI, Boat/US has sent the following reply 3/18/2013 about this issue:

As you know, we have been negotiating with Yamaha on a program to address dry exhaust corrosion on the company's F220/F225/F250 engines. After several meetings, we are pleased to announce that Yamaha has agreed to a plan to review and address our members complaints.

Yamaha has proposed proceeding as follows:

Contact each member (DaleH NOTE - not sure if relief is limited to Boat/US members, see end of this notice)

Determine the basic information about the motor(s), PID, etc.

Obtain any service records or repair orders

Evaluate other circumstances

Make a determination on a case-by-case basis of the level of assistance.

Our next step is to provide Yamaha with your contact information so that they can begin the program. They should begin contacting our members within the next few weeks, though the volume of complaints means that it will take some time to get to everyone.

We have talked to most of you and know you understand that most of these engines are several years out of warranty and eight to 12 years old. Yamaha was not legally obligated to provide assistance, but the program calls for them to offer compensation ranging from credits for goods and services to payment for parts depending on the specific circumstances. We believe that Yamaha is making a good faith effort to address the dry exhaust corrosion issue in order to maintain their quality reputation and demonstrate their commitment to owners.

While non-BoatU.S. members can participate, we will be unable to do more than provide contact information to Yamaha. BoatU.S. members will still have BoatU.S. Consumer Protection behind them.
