Haha, maybe if I had more time on my hands I might be able to, but this one took me about a month total working with whatever free time I had. That's a pretty motor you have there though I really like the white.

1963 Mercury Merc 350 twin on the transom of my MFG.

All unrestored. Runs great. Not fast (about 25-26 mph tops), but smooth running and easy to start.

I took that photo...those engines were in my 1963 OMC Dual Deluxe. (I can see my Century in the background.) They were sold to someone in Italy, as I remember, and are being replaced with OMC 120 4-cylinders. Those engines were very problematic...automatic oiling system that never worked, thirsty, smokey, parts impossible to find and they only turned out 88 HP each. Good riddance!

I had an old Firestone that was built by Scott-Atwater. Your looks more Elgin-esque.

Have you ever hear about Terhi outboards. Made in Finland by Valmet Oy years 1959–1979. They sell motors to England, Sweden ect. Horsepower 3-50. Small ones were air cooled. I had one. It was simple one cylinder shaker. It was .. nighmare. After that, my father bought Evinrude 6 to me. It was like Rolls Royce. That motor made young boy happy.

I grew up with old Mercs. I have always liked the style. Even the old Jony-rudes and others had style and class back then. They looked fast even when they weren't running. Now the new ones ( especially the Mercs) have turned into blobs with no style hanging on the back of boats that are about the same. They may be faster, but class has a factor also. I love all of these old pictures. Keep them coming.

P.S. I must be getting old!! This is in 1976 behind the boat I now own. I am the hotdog on the left with the rope between my knees,

I'll add this one to the party. This is my '58 Four Fifty in original condition, not restored or repainted. It's the less expensive brother to the Starflite, but this one has the starter and generator added. I guess they didn't sell very many of these because I hardly ever see another one.
It's the original motor on my 1960 Thompson Sea Coaster. I guess it was a left-over at the dealer and the original owner got a good deal on it. It's low hours and it runs great. Monster torque!

Not bad Bill, last time I tried getting up on ski(s) I tore a hamstring. Should have dropped about 70 lbs vs the ski.

Love the motor and hard work getting it like that. That motor looks like it is ready to rock a razor blade prop on some kind of "get your attention" boat. Yep - another smiling gear head on this end.

Well,...After I stare at it for a while, the plan is to put it on my 1955 cab-over hydro, R-22, built by Hu Entrop.
Although not the R-22 that subsequently he set the outboard speed record of 108 MPH - in 1958, it is still a pretty cool piece of outboard racing history.
Currently the hydro is wall art, but I have committed to a Labor Trade with a pal who will be restoring the hydro for me in exchange for some Mercury Magic on one of his classic Mercs.
If I actually put my 75H 'clone' on my old Entrop, I will probably run it at a PNW AOMCI wet meet and then,...Back on the wall.

Wow - great to hear and see. Thanks for sharing...and my boat addiction affliction gets worse! I wish I never would have sold the hydro I built in High School in '79. Just an 8' Glen-L Tiny Titan with a 20 merc fish motor, but I did all the work myself...still have the motor, pictures, and memories, but no boat to hang on wall or run. Please post pictures and videos when that day comes when the package is together!

For me, that is one of the nicest boating shots I have ever seen. Living and boating in what looks like a slice of heaven, glass water, mountain and woods in background, whispy spray coming off the back. A person who has accomplished the build of an amazing rig. I know it seems I am stating the obvious...but Wow - So much going on here (adrenaline rush to boot). Then when the day is done, the grin remains! Thanks for sharing. Is this a screen shot(I mean "Scream" shot)shot from one of those Go Pro cameras?
