I cannot imagine some of the jokes that will posted about this. Good old American outboards,right. The 3.0 Mercruiser is built in Mexico,has been for years. The new Bayliner is built in Mexico,nearly all of Merc's control boxes are from Mexico and have a pretty high failure rate,as do a lot of their electical components from there. Their 4-stroke outboards are mostly Yamahas painted black,but are very high reliability. I've been a Merc guy for 35 years,guess I have to embrace Global Manufacturing.Kind of sad, but maybe their accoutants mandated it.I will watch with interest altho we no longer sell outboards.
