Rick's Martin Outboard Restore Project

video
All this boat show activity has caused Rick to pine for his restored Martin outboard. So, what better way to scratch the old outboard itch, than to post his video of the restoration effort.
Rick was delighted with the way the motor came out and it now seems like a real bridge to the early 1950's. They sure don't build them like this anymore!

I plan to bring this little motor to Florida next season and run it on our small Ghenoe, which should work great. It is't everyone that can run a motor that is the same (young!) age as the operator!
