To kick the mercury engineer of their choice in the nuts.

I am choosing the engineer who designed that stupid manifold assembly on the bottom of the transom assembly for the trim hydraulics. My blood pressure was through the roof on that thing today. There is just no way that could be the best possible design......

Or the bozo that decided to mount the seawater pump down on the very bottom where you can barely get at it with stringers and motor mounts in the way. Had to be the same asshat that came up with the upside down and horizontal oil filter mounts.

Same guy that choose to build the water pump out of brass... He probably owns stock at Hardin...

Dibs on the gasket designer that decided compacted dandelion fuzz was a better material than any of the miscellaneous rubber compounds available.
