Jet boats seem like a good time. I’d rather have one that can bounce off rocks though. Props seem fine to me for clear water go-fast.

love old school looking 70s boats, they fit the era of the lake we are on.  fine with an outboard, if inboard, would prefer shaft drive for later LS swap ha

had fun reviving an old 60s merc 9.9 this weekend at the family cottage.  my uncle couldnt believe what i came up with to break the flywheel free to get to the points.  haha thing fired right up and ripped all weekend just like it was put away last season.  hadnt run in 15+ years with a few others failed at revival over the years. 

canada law is anything under 10hp doesnt need to be registered

this looks so fun

couldnt resist for 25$ on market place tonight, same year and frame as our 9.8 i got running up at our cottage this year.  guy said he had it running last week, but impeller not pumping so shut it down.  otherwise good.

the 1958 Mark28 i picked up (22hp)  i got to fire a couple nights ago after servicing the points.

water pump came in today. 


i guess this automatic transmission outboard is a little different that most. 

first step to changing the impeller is the remove the power head  :o
