Merc's 3.4L V6 and OMC V8 ultimately met the same demise. Boat owners would rather spend their money on big outdrives than monster outboards (1980's and 1990's).
    Here we are in 2018 and V8 behemoths are commonplace (Yamaha and Merc 4 strokes).
    They were fine motors when used as intended. I still service a pair on a fishing boat that the hour meter would have probably spun around on twice.
