Very nice. Several years ago I was filmed by professionals for months for a documentary on a project I was working on. It takes a long time to get comfortable talking in front of a camera. Some days I just could not do it all um's and ahha's and all the footage was scrapped, others it was like I was a full time actor, super smooth. It is much harder than people think to come off natural and convincing, someone people will want to watch. Keep at it and it will become second nature. Convey your enthusiasm for the subject and they will happily watch. Looking forward to it, this is going to be fun to watch. That merc looks very complex vs my OMC.

Here is my first "intro" video. It's a lot harder to talk into a camera than anyone thinks.:doh:
I will muster up the nerve to make my videos so everyone can see what a big dork I am :goof: :) Follow me on my journey as I make this beauty shine again. B) And hopefully help someone along the way

As some of you know I came home from AH with a few extra Mercs. These motors will be used for my new YouTube channel "Mercury Marc" I am going to try to document my resterastions as best as I can.

My intentions for this channel is to hopefully help someone who needs to see and watch a video to help them along the way. There is not much of anything on YouTube except .... "Fisrt time such and such motor starts up in 30 years". As its cool to watch, I sure wish I was able to see how they got to that point.
My channel is only for inspiration.
I will be claiming I am not an expert.
I just want to have some fun with this and learn as I go. If I can help save a Merc from the scrap pile then that's great.
With that said I got these motors from a couple individuals knowing what my intentions were going to be. And they were happy to try to get me started with my YouTube channel, As we are all passionate about antique boating.

I would like to sell one of these motors to someone here on the site. I have documented receipts close to $1,200 in parts Only not including paint and decals. And what ever comes up along the way.

My labor will be minimal for the amount of time and effort, I want to pass the savings on to someone here as well.
I think $800 in labor would be fair for both parties, not so much me but that's okay. I just want to learn. I could have a motor done by AH and deliver. "I hope"

I have parts on hand to restore a 1959 Mark 58A 45HP. Or a Merc 400 1961 45HP. Both short shafts.

I just want to learn more and help someone out.

I had a quote given to me to have my Merc on my hawk restored and it was $3500. Someone from Wisconsin I think.

Eather way it's cheaper and cooler looking than a new one.

PM me if interested and we can work out the details.

Thanks to the gentleman who had the motors.
