In Memory of William K. Grubb 1909-1999


William K. Grubb

In 1940, Kiekhaefer Corporation introduced it's first line of Mercury outboards. Spurred on by his love of boating and fishing and things "mechanical", William Grubb of Spring City, Pennsylvania, purchased one of those first outboards that very year. The following year, he found himself buying another to sell to a friend. In 1946, William Grubb became a franchised Mercury Outboard Dealer. For many years he hauled new motors home from a Philadelphia distributor in the back of the family sedan. Calling the business "William K. Grubb Marine", he ran his fledgling dealership from the basement of his house.  The business was a small "Mom & Pop" operation. William sold boats on a small scale, selling such brands over the years as Trojan, Whirlwind, Duratech, Crosby, Priwing, Duo, Glastron, and Galaxy.
