GOT A QUESTION ABOUT ANTIQUE OUTBOARDING?
|This is a pretty old meet report, I have left it up in memoriam as we are no longer able
to use this beautiful spot, owner-member Bob Sperring has passed away.
Carl Kiekhaefer's MERCURYS outshone 'em all!
It was a great day for the green Machines!
Classic Mercury motors stole the show. The selection ranged from a well preserved KB3 to the ultimate killer classic,
this amazing MK75H!
Some of my Merc motors, from left to right; KB3, KH7 Cruiser, Mark 20, 1949 KG9 with chrome flywheel, 1952 KG9H, and 1927 ELTO Speedster. I dream. Notice the tiller handle on the KG9H! Imagine that I'm leading the D Stock Hydro pack into the first turn, steering with the tiller!! A tiller thriller! (sorry, couldn't resist!)
Brooke Jr. from Spokane, and his son Doug (RT) check out those Mercs &
stuff! Doug has had dies built and manufactured new gasket sets for the
older KF & KG series Mercs, as well as the Mark 50. He has also reproduced
old Johnson opposed head gaskets, as well as for the OMC 4-60. Call him at 509-747-0517.
Williams and his son Charlie own "PHILS PERFORMAX MARINE" in Puyallup,
WA. Charlie has been trained well. He and his dad have an incredible Merc
collection, would you believe they have TEN 20H's? (yes,10) Dad still
races classic C and C service with the Speeditwins & PR's. That 20H is
original and stock. They ran it around all day along with the KG4 pictured
A 1930's PHANTOM! Once upon a time this boat was mine - - I sold it to
Bob Haynes 10 years ago when storage of 150 motors and 6 boats ecame
more than I could afford, as I now live most of the time in Hawaii. He
has impeccably restored it to better than new. Now I can enjoy it and
not have to be responsible!! (But I still wish I had it!). These boats will
still run competitively today in "C". Amazing!
OK so there were some other heavy hardware types at the meet. Mike Hansen
brought this rare '34 ELTO Big 4 60 cubic inch "eggfryer" so called as
the tops of the cylinders get VERY hot, they have no cooling there! Member
Jack Dumont from Canada (RT) converses with an unidentified fan.
An Impeccably restored '28 Evinrude Fastwin.Built by the competitor to Ole Evinrude's ELTOs.
But thats another story.
These 2 beauties run as good as they look! A Neptune 16 and an early "A" Johnson.This was a really fun day for all who participated. If you have any older boating equipment, or are just fascinated by old stuff, you might want to get involved. The vintage motors are inexpensive, reliable and boating can be fun. There is always someone willing to help you to enjoy the hobby. get with us!
