I think you are right that it's a Newport, somebody has to have S/N info somewhere.

beam width 71 inches
i thought it might be a NEWPORT but i can't make all the characteristics line up?
any measurements that could be used to verify?
rear section has beams that go lengthwise of the boat with a bracket that bolts from center of transom to center beam
rest of boat has crosswise structure
found HIN ----94124294

Does it have a 73” beam?
That is a big boat, wider than your Falcon?

I don't know if it's pertinent but the catalog does not show a splash rail on the Saratoga but it does show one on the two 14' boats.
The boat in Falcon2's post has no splash rail.
The beam is quite a bit wider on the Saratoga spec sheet.

Looks like a Malibu...



Doesn't look quite bulky enough to be a Saratoga, but if it's really 15'...



In any case, Nice score!

The handle between the clamp screws is like all of the Martins that I have seen for trimming the motor , the 200 does not have the swivel that allows you to swing the lower unit into the boat so that you can remove weed from the lower unit or change a sheared shear pin like the smaller Martins
For the guy that wanted to see the KG-9 here a few pictures or go to you tube and put in restoration of 2 KG-9 Mercurys and you will get a few videos of this motor , you can`t miss it because it is white and was white before the restoration

I also knew what that handle was for but I didn't want to come across as a smart ass know it all.

I bet it is to adjust trim.
