    I grew up around OMC loyalists, but once I got in to go fasts it was clear to me that Mercury was the way to go. Once you go black, you’ll bever go back!

    I actually usually run Mariner V6’s, so since I only went gray there still may be hope?

    One of my first jobs was at a Buick garage. Across the street was Miller Marine, and right in the front window was the most perfect engine I had ever seen! This was around 1969. A brand new black Merc 1000 SS. My first brand new motor took a few years to afford but was well worth the wait, the 1000SS big brother,A 77 1500XS.But it all goes back to that slim tall Merc in the window,I've been hooked ever since.

    My first Outboard was a 1971 9.8 Merc, used to terrorize the drainage canals close to my house in my early teens. Have had almost nothing but Merc's ever since (one yamahammer, and one Evinrude ).

    Tons of V6 motors, most built up from scavenged parts, FrankenMerc motors. All I cold afford then.
    In my view they are the "SBC" of outboard motors. Lots of used parts everywhere, and most of them interchangeable within a wide range of years and HP configurations. And reliable, even my basket case builds.

    I have nothing against other makes, I'm sure their OK as well. Biggest reason was in my early boating days most of the races I saw at the marine stadium in Miami were dominated by Merc's. All tower of powers with stacks back then.
