I'd take a used Johnson outboard over ten brand new Merc's.Especially the smaller ones for trolling, there is no comparison. A Merc will vibrate the fillings out of your teeth.Of course with safety ever present in mind, a couple of large flotation devices such as those pictured above should be standard equipment on any vessel, large or small.
Overflow. What a waste.
What does your post title have to do with the photo?I see no outboard motor in the picture!+1 Keads
Stephen, It's only a waste because I'm not there to give those puppies the attention they truly deserve.
I learned to ski behind one just like that!
That is sad. I used to have one of those. I think I'll get out there and see if I can find one of those on a corner somewhere.
That is sad, such a loss of good material !
That revs up my Johnson !!
