Fired up the PO after many years of hibernation. Just some quick checks before I hit the river tomorrow.

That is so neat. I've seen a lot of those vintage outboards but never actually seen one run.
Thanks for sharing.

That was definitely cool! Liked the line of Mercs in the back of the garage too. Surprised that Cal didn't call you a hoarder too!!! :woohoo:

I ran it on the river today. Got about 28 MPH out of it. Need to do some carb cleaning and I'll try again next week. The is one of 3 OMC motors I have. Normally run inline 6 mercs.

Thats really neat. By your description, a good bit more powerful than my 1974 15hp as well. Ide sure like to do 28 in my 12 foot alumacraft!

By the way, I really like your boat! Those split cockpit tin boats really appeal to me. Im currently looking for a nice one to restore, rather than another fiberglass boat of great vintage. Ill save the glass projects for newer,,like 80s or 90s.
