Yankee Chapter: Making Waves With Old Outboards


Madbury NH - November 9th, 2013

The Yankee Chapter had another great meet at Gary S's house in Madbury NH. Thanks to Gary S., Rusty M. and Wayne G. for hosting the event.

Mixed on the lawn with the falling leaves were lots of motors and gear! I think about 2 motors were sold/swapped or given away for every person in attendance. Weather started chilly, warmed up mid-morning to be beautiful, then cooled off during lunch. It was great to catch up with everyone.

Since it was our final event of the year, a moment of silence was observed in remembrance of Rick Wilson and Carl Renholm who passed away this year. Their passing has been a loss to us all.

Here are just a few photos, thanks again to Gary for the meet!

Tom M. eyes the goodies on Gary M's trailer
More of Garry's items for sale - that 1918 RBM sure looks interesting, mostly complete and turns over...
Good outboard literature is tough to find - a bunch of nifty stuff turned up today
That Tanaka looks a little new for us, Champion and Neptune are more our thing.
Tom & Dean had Scotts galore, sold them for the Bendix motors seen in the background - even more showed up later!
Those boxes had what appeared to be a mostly complete 1930 Elto Speedster that had been totally disassembled - it was free to anyone willing to take it on!
Mixed with the fall leaves were a 1961 Elgin, 1941 Sportsman, 1936 Sportsman, Johnson LS-38 and a Johnson AD-10
Ken's "dollar bins" are always great fun to pick through
It is always difficult to rest an HA-10 down on the ground or in the trunk of your car - that's why all of them have dented and bashed gas tanks. This example has a nifty rest/carry handle - not sure if this was manufactured or put together by a former owner. What a great idea!
Here are a few shots of what's in Gary's basement. He has several micro-cars, Subaru 360, Messerschmidt, Isetta and others. This red fiberglass car. (I can't remember the model) is currently being restored
Some of Gary's smaller motors
And a few of the bigger motors that Gary has - many are in mint original condition
Gary likes the Scott Atwater brand and also the West Bend-made Elgins
"Brand new" 1952 Elgin 16hp - not sure if it has ever been run
