Ahoy. My name is Bill Grannis and I have been a marine technician for almost 50 years. Over that time span I've worked with and have been trained on many types of engines and propulsion systems along with various boats and accessories. My strong suit is the Johnson-Evinrude outboard as I worked mostly for those dealers in the Midwest and the South and in addition spent a few years with OMC Engineering Department in Waukegan, Illinois in the latter 1960s. My other experiences and training include Yamaha, Volvo, OMC/Cobra, and MerCruiser engines and drives.
