You are ready to get your boat out on the water, but something is wrong — and it appears to be the outboard. You figure you can save yourself a few bucks and try to repair it yourself, but you cannot find your Mercury outboard manual anywhere. Looks like you will be heading to a professional. On the other hand, you could buy a replacement from the vast inventory on eBay. All you need to know is what model of Mercury or Mariner outboard you own, as well as the year it was made. After all, the company has been around since 1939. You can even find books that date back several decades. All manuals are written so that a do-it-yourself mechanic can troubleshoot his or her own boat, but they provide the exact same guidance that professional mechanics use. In fact, the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard use a Mercury outboard manual when necessary, as do numerous trade schools and higher education institutions. Save yourself some grief, and go ahead and pick up a manual for your boat before the need for it arises.
