    Mr. Evinrude was justly proud of his "Silvery" outboard. He had thought about it and planned for two or three years before submitting the plans to Cnris Meyers. Chris had tried a twin Evinrude and at 100 pounds had been a total flop. So, like the Little Red Hen, when Chris turned him down, Ole said "Then I’ll do it myself", and he did. At that time it was the Rolls Royce of Row Boat Motors. It was (IMHO) a work of Art as much as it was an outboard motor. Now get away from that Elto with that hammer and call the Smithsonian . . . 😀

    The stand is Johnson from 1926? to mid 30s.

    A bit newer than that. Probably from the 2016-2017 era. 😀

    quote Chris_P:

    As much as I wish that my stand was original, its only a few months old.

    We have some talented guys in our chapter! They made it from an original.

    Chris, care to elaborate on the stand? Someone in your club making these?

    Yes Bruce Reinhart made it. He makes excellent stands for anyone that wants that vintage look. He goes by bruceter on the forum.

    We also have a couple other guys that do casting as well, and are turning out some amazing finished products!

    I know Chris’ stand is reproduced. The style is from Johnson’s.
