Pretty soon I'll be the only one still running a 1950s motor.
John,

I am still running old motors.

I do enjoy vintage. But I can see one day having both. A FC with vintage and another FC with modern.










There is a middle way: 25 years old. 

 
Vagabonding.

The great unknown is even greater than we thought.

Well, it looks like at least Alan is hanging in there with his new old Merc ;-) and MercuryMarc has put several restored motors out there that should be around a while.

That poor Merc 500 just wanting to run is getting no love, collecting dust.

Rob, I'll buy the motor back from you...., text me.

Don’t forget Oldlure. His Johnson seems to run like a top.

Rob. You will enjoy the new motor.  I thought maybe the lack of communication was poor cell service in the dog house….

The next day, Mike and I with our twin Vags, one VIN # apart,  went to his hacienda on the Ocklawaha.  Ms. Carey flew in from NOLA and the party continued.  Everyone loved the Dora Canal, Silver River and Springs and the boat show.  
After the party and my love flew back to LA, I went to my son's place in Palm Harbor, FL.  After 3 days of fishing and a run on the WeekieWatchee, I went a bought a 30HP Tahotsu, trim and tilt, 4 stroke, in the box.  When I left there, I travelled back to Doug's in Crawfordville and we installed it on Madeline Rose.  First day, 5 hours, variying the RPMS and second day the same for 4 more hours.
My phone took a dive and I have lost so many pictures, but I am not lianing when I say, I love this little motor.
