(WFRV)- You cannot talk about this community without mentioning Mercury Marine.

Mercury Marine has been making world-class outboards and sterndrives for more than 75 years. They began back in 1939 in a small machine shop in Wisconsin and have grown into the largest builder of marine propulsion systems in the world.

Mercury Marine has been a company of firsts. In 1952, Mercury introduced the first splined propeller shaft, eliminating the need for a shear pin. In 1954, Mercury introduced the Mark 40, the first outboard to produce one horsepower per cubic inch, followed two years later by the 60hp Mark 75, the first six-cylinder outboard and the most powerful at the time.
