What's New

Welcome!  Due to the demise of my previous internet provider, my old site was shut down unexpectedly.  But I'm back with a new name, "AntiqueOutboardMotor.Info", and soon lots of new info for all of you old outboard fans.  To start the new site I have brought back three of the most popular features, but keep watching because there will be lots of new info too.  Here we go again!

 This is were it all started.  The year was 1965 and at age 15 I had just finished building this Science & Mechanics "Minimost".  I had several motors that first year.  My first was an Elgin that my Dad bought for me.  Somebody had painted it pink!  Very embarrassing for a teen-age boy.  Next came a Wizard "Super 10" - at least it was green!  But what I REALLY wanted was a Mercury "Hurricane" like the racers used.  That never happened until 1999, but toward the end of that first season I stumbled on this Mercury KE-7 "Lightning Deluxe".  I must have burned a thousand gallons of gas that first year, and the outboarding fun has yet to stop!

If you want to build a boat, try a Minimost. They are simple to build and very inexpensive. Most any motor of 5-20hp will do.
It will do 35-40 mph with a 10-20hp mtor. My Minimost and Mercury KE-7 -- still a very popular combo! I will never forget how much fun I had!

This site is dedicated to my Dad, and all those guys, young and old, that have a desire to get wet, go fast, and have a good time with an old outboard.  Thanks to Ole Evinrude, Carl Kiekhaefer, and all the mechanical visionaries that created generations of outboard boating enthusiasts.  And a special thanks to John Schubert for sharing all the racing history that I missed!
     Enjoy, Skip
