What Company Would You Rather Have A Marine Engine By?

And Why?

Indmar?
Mercruiser?
Pleasure Craft?
Or Other?

Ilmore..... Mostly because it seems like there is very, very little issues with them. Not to mention, they are a little bit easier to service.

I have a fourteen year old Ford engine marinized by PCM and it has been trouble free (knock wood) for the 5 years I have owned it.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Hard to say...Ilmore still a bit too new for me to agree with... It's the serviceability down the road.

I like PCM and Indmar because I have a '95 350 and I can get most parts at the local NAPA Dealer. Plus my local independent mechanic can work on it.

I have had engines with marinization by BOTH Indmar and PCM.... Although I have never had any significant issues with either one I prefer Indmar.....

Why do you prefer Indmar?

Your options are going to be limited by the years of boats youre considering. Pretty sure MC hasnt offered PCM since the mid-80's. Indmar was the only option through 2010. Ilmore and Indmar were offered in '11 and now its all Ilmore starting in '12.
