Default Mercury in 1957.....

Recently I was in Atlanta for some additional training and saw on the wall an advertisement for an inline 6 cylinder 60HP outboard motor, and it just kinda hit me that only 50 years later we have engineered a 350HP inline 6 cylinder. I've plumbed 400+ from the late model 3.0L but that's heavily modified. Just the fact that the motor is available on the market to the general public, just seems well...... Impressive. Yamaha too.

Thumbs up Yup...

That really is something to admire. Mercury has always had their poop coagulated.

Yep... I guess we've all come a ways in the last 50 years!
