National Geographic : 1967 May
Go where other outboards fear to tread with a '67 fishing Mere. As this photo taken in the Florida Everglades shows, a Mere doesn't quit when the going gets tough. It's designed to run wherever you point it. A rugged driveshaft housing is cast of one piece of aluminum and angled to take you through weeds and over underwater obstructions safely and easily. A shear proof drive eliminates all shear or drive pins, makes sure you're not suddenly without power. And Mercury's dependable small-bore, short-stroke engine design delivers extra horsepower and gas mileage without extra weight. You maneuver in the tightest spot with one-hand control of speed and direction, plus a full forward-neutral-reverse gearshift. It all adds up to confidence. With a Merc at your back, you're ready to face anything. See all 4 new fishing Mercs for '67-engineered to stay ahead: 3.9, 6, 9.8 and 20 HP-at your Mercury dealer. Or write for '67 catalog to Dept.
