Re: Merc 2 stroke

I have a Merc 3.5, and LOVE it. No oil changes, the tank is integral, and it produces lots of power - it will get my 190lb butt, and my 9' RIB up on a plane , and it will run for over an hour (not at WOT ) on a tank of gas.

That said, it isn't perfect. I wish that the tiller were longer, and it had a throttle on the tiller. It sounds like this OB addresses these two shortcomings. I believe that ALL small Mercury motors were manufactured by Tohatsu.
