    Description'This book is the one to buy if you are interested in collecting antique outboard motors.' - "Boating". The only complete guide to finding and identifying vintage outboard engines Antique outboard motors have a mystique much like vintage cars, and they're much more affordable. Plus, once restored, they can be put to good use again, providing power for putt-putting around, fishing, waterskiing, or even racing."The Old Outboard Book" tells the story of the outboard motor, from the earliest days near the end of the nineteenth century through the dawn of the modern outboard era in the 1960s. Virtually every outboard motor ever built is here: Caille, Champion, Evinrude, Flambeau, Johnson, Martin, Mercury, Scott-Atwater, Waterwitch - the Big List chapter covers them all. The book also includes comprehensive oil-mix and spark plug charts for most old outboards. The third edition of Peter Hunn's classic continues the story of the outboard motor, extending the coverage of U.S. and Canadian motors up to the mid-1970s and adding motors from Australia and Great Britain. In addition, the pricing and rarity guide and the complete model-year list have been updated. If you're a buff of old outboard motors, you need this book. 'Love old outboard motors? Check out "The Old Outboard Book"' - "Motor Boating & Sailing". 'Incredible amount of detail about all those kickers from the past' - "WoodenBoat".
