Kevin and I picked up a 1954 Corsair Navigator 5hp. (Another Scott Atwater store brand motor) at Tomahawk two years ago from the "Free" pile. It was frozen in the lower unit, so it needed a bit of work to get it back from the dead, but these are really nice motors. I think that they were very competitive with the competition at the time. We ran a TN-26 this year, great motor, and a Mark 5, both in the 5hp. class from the major builders. The Corsair has full gear shift, remote fuel tank, fuel pump, tiller throttle and steering. It will troll nicely, perhaps not as nice as the TN, but pretty good. This may be just condition of the motor, and not representative of them when new. In any event, these are not bad motors.
