I LOVE EVINRUDE ALMOST AS MUCH AS I LOVE WOMEN WHEN THEY DONT NAG!! ANYWAY I HAVE HAD A 9.9 H.P., 15 H.P., 100 H.P., 120 H.P. AND NOW A 200 H.P. ALL EVINRUDE/JOHNSON AND I LOVE THEM. PART OF THE REASON I GUESS THAT I STAY WITH EVINRUDE/JOHNSON IS THE MAIN MARINA ON LAKE GEORGE N.Y. IS A CERTIFIED EVINRUDE DEALER AND IT IS VERY EASY TO GET PARTS.

Ive owned dozens or mercs big and small, and dozens of OMC's and both have been great. I find that the OMC's start better and you can run them to forever with little problems. I have one 90hp OMC right now with 90psi in one cylinder and it still starts right up and moves the predictor at just over 28 knots. Ive got another 1980 something 40hp OMC that can really pull when it needs to. that motor is great. The OMC's are definitely workhorses and will stand the test of time. Ive had more problems with mercury although I have had some great mercs too. Im having some fuel delivery issues with my 1987 OMC V8 right now but it was running mint before that and is probably something minor.
Like Chris said, both are good when they are running and a POS when not
