Wooden Boat and Outboard Page
I'm adding a new page of 'old' and 'antique' outboard motor pics, hope
you enjoy them!
You can see the Motor Pics Here
Most all of these have been sold, to pay medical expenses.
My latest project boat is a 1957 Barbour 19' Silver Clipper which will see water this Spring (2006).
Here are some links to pics:

There's a major update in the Barbour
Restoration page 7/26/99. I have just uploaded 20 pics
of the new bottom going on, I hope you enjoy them. I'll be restoring above
the waterline this spring. Look for the pics around April 2000.
I'll load pics asap now that I'm back in action here. Major heart surgery slowed me down for a while, but things are heading in the right direction.
I received so many photos of other Barbour Boats , two new ones added 4/24/99, I decided to post some of them for others to enjoy. I have some more to add, so check back in a few days.
At least most of you now sign in at the guestbook; It helps me to follow up on info requests, etc. My thanks to all who signed in and left compliments and insults. Remember folks - Shit Happens.
Here's a quickie pic from the Museum atClayton

large quantity of NOS and N/A parts from two Marinas. Johnson/Evinrude
Only. Let me know the part numbers, I may be able to help.Sold the parts, sorry
Over the years I've owned and operated several Wooden Boats including a 1960 18'Lyman which was a blast - see "Classic Boating" issue #67 page 4.(I haven't found their web page yet). Here's how the repairs looked before paint was applied:
