The boat pictured here was rumored to be in my home town. I met a guy who is big into Mercs and restoring wooden boats who shared this small bit from Peter Hunn's book and told me that he had been friends with the owner. He had recently passed and had told me that the local chapter of the AOMCI was cataloging his collection to help his widow sell the collection. I tried to get more info, but he started to get a little off put by my inquiries. Tried explain that I had the same boat and would love to see it, he just said that she lives in Florida for the winter and for me to join the AOMCI so I might see the notification of the auction.

Peter Hunn has some awesome books about outboard history along with aluminum boats. "Two Tones and Tailfins" is a must! Great info on the history of many aluminum makes with a great feature on Feather Craft.

Sorry I couldn't help but laugh at this 1970 Johnson commercial. Sounds like a skit from Saturday Night Live.:tongue:
