    They all have good points and they all have bad points. I started with a Merc and will likely die with a Merc.

    I have had all three. I like this V6 Merc ( my first one ) a lot though. Sounds good, runs good, and sooooo much support/parts. The Merc V6 to OB's is the LS/SBC/BBC to muscles cars. You can argue all day about which is better, but you cannot argue the fact that 9/10 HotRods are powered by them, same as Merc V6 ob's they are on most gofast boats. Props galore

    As a kid in the 50's, grew up with them all. But the budding gearhead in me saw all the J-rudes, Scotts, (learn to ski behind it), but my Brother had a Baby Switzer with 20H Merc. Ernie next us resort had a Hydro w'20H too, as a pink ski boat with a Merc 350 he would ski behind dad driving, and he was a FANTASTIC skier! But across the lake was a wooden Switzer semi cabin, red with that white swirl the sides with that "Stack on the back"! Dunno if dock buster, or FGS. But THAT tall motor, and that sound had me hooked for LIFE! 60+ years later still got a "stack on the back" my little Flatbottom! "Back in black and aint ever going back"!

    Heres the pic I found on that Switzer. Not cabin, but cover. Funny thing it was F/S and from Lake Villa Illinois, where we boated! Is it the same one I saw decades ago? Who knows. And also knew Bobby Switzer well later in life Fox Lake (built my Swit SS17, new XS IL6 in 1972). Neighbor had his GL20, 200 Rude. But one day Bobby and Carol as doggy came up our channel in his new GL21, with 235 Rude! RIP Bobby, as passed now. Some pix old days! Great times! Old boat had a IL6, not this 4 stack.
