Mercury Force

Recommended Posts

I have a 40 hp Mercury Force on my boat and I've never seen another one ever. I've heard that they're supposedly one of the better motors when it comes to working regurlarly and stuff like that. Anyone out there with a Force? If so, have you had any trouble with it?

I have a 97 40hp Force. I just replaced the starter and that is the only issue I have had. Great motor, definatley one of the better ones out there.

I know Bronzeback Bomber has a 40hp Force on his Tracker as well.

I have a 1989 15hp force for about 15 years now and had it in the shop once, needed a new water pump (my fault). No problems.

Here's a little history on Force outboards from http://www.boatmotors.com/outboard/force/

The Force Outboard brand was born in the early 1980's when US Marine, the parent company of Bayliner Boats, purchased the old Chrysler Outboard factory and tooling located in Hartford, Wisconsin. Bayliner was the first nationwide company to introduce packaged outboard rigs in which the outboard motor, the boat and a trailer were sold as a single item. Arriving at dealerships fully assembled, these packages were great timesavers for dealers that previously had to custom rig bare hulls with specific engines and accessories chosen by the boats' buyers. Although Force Outboards lacked the technological sophistication of the major outboard brands, their price advantage was significant. Thousands of families discovered their love for boating through these inexpensive Bayliner entry-level outboard boats. In the mid-1980's US Marine was acquired by industry giant Brunswick Corporation (Mercury, Mercruiser, Sea Ray, etc.). The Force Outboard brand quickly benefited from the resources of its big brother Mercury, and all production was soon moved to Mercury's plants. Force Outboards became available on boat brands other Bayliner at dealerships nationwide. The changing marketplace, diminished price advantages and pending government regulations resulted in the decision to discontinue the Force brand in 1999.
