What do you get when you send marine journalists to Louisiana with a dozen or so boats to test and throw in a TV celebrity and a seafood boil? One unforgettable Cajun party thanks to Mercury Marine!

Around 20 journalists came together in the New Orleans, La., area this summer to test six Mercury engines ranging from 60 to 370hp. Getting our hands on such a wide variety of engines was only half the fun. Mercury went out of its way to provide a true Louisiana experience at its media event and even went so far as to invite Troy Landry from the hit TV show Swamp People, but we'll get to that in a minute...

Get the dish on all the Cajun fun at the Mercury Marine test party on page 35 of the August 2013 issue of PDB!
