Old Outboards

I was really taken with the look of the old outboard motors. Nowadays, you can't tell one motor from the next unless you read the graphics on it, but back in the day, they were as distinctive as different models of automobiles.

Old Powerboats

These are some of the boats those motors are attached to. I really like the Woodpecker!

Way Late Post!

This should have been posted on May 3rd, but I am no good at this blogging thing. On May 2nd, my family and I went to Beaufort, NC for the 2009 Wooden Boat Show. There was some amazing work on display there. Many restorations of classic boats as well as home-built wooden boats from paddle to sail to motor powered craft. I won't say anymore, but here are some of the pictures.
