Yankee Chapter: Making Waves With Old Outboards


Wayland/Lake Cochituate - July 21st 2007

The Wayland/Lake Cochituate meet was a success again this year. We had about 15 members present and old iron of all varieties on the water. Some of the 20's motors included Johnson models B and A-25, a Caille Pennant, a first year Elto ruddertwin and an Evinrude model N. There were several 30's and pre-war 40's motors as well. The 50's motors were present in full force including beautifully restored big-iron Evinrudes, Mercs and Johnsons. Many 50's boats were run and Bill A ran his beautiful Old Town wood fishing boat.

Compared to last year we had lots of time to kibitz and enjoy the near perfect weather.
