      Only 5 hmmm well here is the list:
      1913 Evinrude RBM
      1914 Ferro RBM
      1926 Elto Ruddertwin
      19?? folding Elto
      1957 Evinrude Fastwin

      The question does make me think though and I would have a really hard time getting the collection below 25 motors as I see it now.


        1953 Martin 200 Silver Streak
        1952 Chris-Craft Commander
        1958 Evinrude Big Twin
        1958 Evinrude Lightwin
        1953 Wizard WH7 Powermatic 10

        I like the 50’s

          My Grandfather’s 3 hp Buccaneer, sentimental, & fond memories of it
          catching on fire twice.

          Evinrude Zepher that that I used to get running in the test barrel by
          the garage when I was a teenager, haul it down the hill to the lake, put on the boat,
          and it would not start. 🙁 It’s going to be a future project for refurbishing!

          Mercury Mark 6 that my uncle gave me, still awaiting the test barrel after restore.

          My current project, 4 hp Muncie Neptune OB34A…….. unless it doesn’t
          run when I’m done, then it’s for sale, lol.

          My late father’s 1973 Mercury 75, 7.5 hp that was on his pontoon when
          I was a teenage. Hasn’t run in 30 years. Perhaps a future project.

          Prepare to be boarded!

                        There is no way I could keep it at 5, 25 maybe, but just for fun…..in no particular order, motors that I have in our collection:.
                        1) 1969 Mercury 200 (I have thirteen of these 200’s, and 2 69’s. They are the best looking and fastest of this great line of motors.)
                        2) 1947 Mercury KE-7 (Mercury’s most important motor and I love to run ours. Fast, idles like a dream, looks fantastic!)
                        3) 1971 Mercury 800 (bored out this inline 4 +.030 and it is like new. I need at least one big motor for my 18′ Lund. The last year of red trim!)
                        4) 1960 or 56 Evinrude Lightwin. (Either one, I like the looks of the 56 better, the 60 is more powerful. Great little motor!)
                        5) 1952 Mercury KH-7 (Ultimate Mercury green tank, and a real transition motor for them. Look great, full gear shift.)

                        Our Motors that almost made the list.

                        6) 1955 Mercury Mk-25. (One of Mercury’s best late 50’s motors and still just as good today. We have 4 of them. They look great too!)
                        7) 1963 Mercury 200 (I love my 63, ran it a lot last summer. Last of the white Mercury and like the KH-7, a transition motor. Full gear shift!)
                        8) 1968 Mercury 110 ( We have 5 of these 110s from 62-69. Real powerhouse from 11cid. Smooth, reliable, lightweight! Great fishing motor)
                        9) 1958 Evinrude Fleetwin ( I paid $12 for this Fleetwin, and I love it. Just a pleasure to hear run and take it fishing.)
                        10) 1984 Mercury 7.5 hp Duck’s Unlimited edition. (This was my first motor that was mine. I won it at a banquet! Runs fantastic and is like new!)
