The only complete guide to finding and identifying vintage outboard engines

Antique outboard motors have a mystique much like vintage cars, and they're much more affordable. Plus, once restored, they can be put to gooduse, once again providing power for putt-putting around, fishing, waterskiing, or even racing. The third edition of Peter Hunn's classic continues the story of the outboard motor, extending the coverage of U.S. and Canadian motors up to the mid-1970s and adding motors from Australia and Great Britain. In addition, the pricing and rarity guide and the complete model-year list have been updated.

If you're a buff of old outboard motors, you need this book.
