  • What size boat will I need?

    Just kidding. I found a rare engine, 3 hp, evinrude fold up in a suit case engine, 1966, all original, minimum hours is much at all.

      That 3 HP motor brings back memories. I had the same motor on my Sears flat Bottom when I was 10 years old. I am 42 today. Ran great

      and it never looked that good. Lucky find.

          The engine is so quiet for a two stroke, and has no vibration since it is a twin cylinder. The thing is almost as if it just came off the assembly line. I spoke to the new Evinrude operation today, and old guy that has been with Evinrude for 30 years,[Bombadier out of Canada now owns it] and he told me that this engine is so rare under normal conditions, but this engine is absurb in bringing huge bucks. So I am reconsidering using it in salt water. If I could sell this engine, I could almost buy a new Mako, if I could find the right buyer, or so says he.

            I had one as a kid that didn't fold up and I couldn't kill it. My father said as soon as it died he would get me a 10 hp so I "accidently" had it go swimming a few times and the damn thing wouldn't die. I think he still has it in his garage somewhere.

              I had a 25 tiller handle that was a real Everready bunnie, too. But thats the only outboard that has given me such a long life. I am a bit confused, now, as to what to do with it. I am torn as to use it, or to follow up on some leads and transform it into something more usefull. Heck I just like odd stuff, and one off, stuff that is just not common anymore. I had an offer of 3,500 hundred dollars, this evening. If I was in my younger days, I would say what the heck, but now things like this is just cool. Life's priorities, sometimes just gets buried for the real fun stuff, the emotional high with unigue stuff.

                That would go a long way into buying somemore epoxy to finish the Garvy or make a hell'va down payment on Swamp Witch.[]

                    As I was driving home from work tonight, I couldn't

                    stop remembering the great times I had using

                    the 3 HP. However, I caution you when you go and use,

                    the one clamp that attaches the motor to the boat

                    has some issues....shot off the transom a couple

                    of times. My Dad would dive for it every time.

                    Drain the carb, pop out the sparkplugs and it was good

                    to go again. Always with a stern warning...."behave

                    or I will send your mother out in the boat with you"

                    As a matter of fact, the last time I used the

                    motor it shot off the back on long pond in

                    Yarmouth MA while doing donuts....30 years ago.

                    I hope my son does not read this.Sorry for rambling...

                      LOL!!! I can appreciate where you are coming from, as my two older boys had their first big motor, 40 hp mercury take drink, about three miles from the house, running it wide open across some water that did not exceed the draft of the boat, and ended up being towed back by sailboat. Boy was that embarrassing!!!!!!!!!!!

                        After flying for twenty five years, I have not set foot on an airplane, since 1998, except for one trip to Seattle Wash. to ride back with my son. If this tired body shows up in Destin, which is better than 90 percent, depending on my wife's progress with her nightmare of a job now, I will be dragging a stinking wood hull, that will venture across the shallows, only. Deepwater is another thing I gave up in runabouts, except a few miles offshore, taking only fifteen minutes to return home.
