Hi there, NE Whaler. You didn't indicate what year motor, but I'll throw this out - I have a 1968 Mercury 50 HP Thunderbolt that came off a 15 hull. I haven't heard it run, and was told it had last run in 2009. In other words, it's been sitting a number of years, and I suspect will need a going thro...
