Doc
I saw this on craigs list today and thought of you. You should get it for the man cave lol. I would bet its either a dealer display or yet another stolen piece from the factory. Tons of that stuff came out over the last few years. I had a friend that had a merc 1500 cut-away. Not sure what he did with it.

That one ain't plastic, either! Bet it weighs quite a bit, even cut-out as it is.

Down in Belfair, WA (not far from the Doc's place in Shelton), used to be a shop called Sande Boat Works (the creators of the Sande Ace runabout).

They had a plastic Merc Tower of Power cutout on the outside wall. When they shut down and auctioned-off everything, the cutout went, too.

Along with a Mint Sande Ace that had been hanging upside-down in their showroom for practically forever.

Talk about some history! As I recall the lucky winner of the Ace auction was one of the members of the local Sande Ace club.

Lol, I posted the pic, i'm surely not saying anything. Some superheros leap tall buildings in a single bound, our merc hero hoists immovable objects and smiles doing it.
