The wine of the engine, the splashing of the water, the whisping of the air rushing by your face as you cruse across the lake. Nothing compares!

With their over revving warning system, safety and precaution are a maximum concern to Mercury Marine. The fact that there is no gear case and no prop makes it a great choice for small fishing boats in shallow water. In addition, the fact that there are no props on the engines adds a safety factor for swimmers and fishing lines!!! Despite the fact that the engine is rated for 20 hp, the hp. at the impeller is actually 25!!!!! This shows in just another way how Mercury tries to squeeze every drop of power out of these little work horses.
Every product by Mercury Marine that I have ever owned has out-performed all of my expectations! Am I qualified to judge Mercury Marines' quality? I think so. In the past I have owned multiple engines by Mercury Marine. In addition, I currently am operating a 1999 15 hp. outboard, a 1987 25 hp. outboard, a 1998 350 Magnum sterndrive, and a 1973 sterndrive that still hits full throttle like it ever did!
Their products are superior, and the jet driven OB are just another one of their great power options for boating.
