The Mercs have not gone far away. They are safe.
I cant say they will be in action very soon, but I would love to get them on a Power Cat

I have room for one more project in my yard
Ken's powercat Aj's mercury's
I am happy to foster the bastard love child until a proper parent is found.
I remember this thread and went through it again.
AJ I did laugh and felt your pain when you mentioned the canned outboard sound in the doco.

Hi Nigel,
well i understand how you would consider what four lined up may look like, Um three is very impressive.
I have just added a 1975 1500 long shaft to my collection and have them side by side for comparison.
Sounds awesome and loud - cant wait to give it a run ......
I shall be consulting you as things progress, if I may.
cheers Tom

I don't think that the 1500xs is genuine as the cowl is not fluted....It's definitely not the the one from Brisbane Old Racer because it was MEEEEEE!
Apologies everyone I don't post because I have no progress to report, but now that my motor is finished! I am motivated to work on boat.
I am glad you liked it Old Racer and that you met up. I told Graeme he would like this site but he said internet too challenging.
I see he still has 2.5 liter for sale if anyone wants to go really fast

He is great contact as has been in the industry - also has a powercat with twin 750's(not for sale)
I promise I will take care of this beauty
I plan to put it on the caribbean - yes I know way too much for little boat -but what could go wrong!  Cool

Bingo! that is good luck. That is the easiest way to complete your boat.

Congratulations

YES! but a motor with such little use! ............ it's probably full of wasps or mice - forget about it

Yes, well all my Knowledge is very Google Eyed so I may be a little confused. From pictures I am not sure if hardware suits you - but I definitely have the same fittings as the post I linked I can send you some photos from Gumtree that I saved - Ad is now gone

Hi Cherry, I am thinking my Caribbean is the Belmont, aka Dorsett Belmont, designed by Raymond Loewy.
The Lexington I was referring to was one that previously posted here some years ago http://board.net.au/yabbse/index.php?topic=799.0
It was listed for about 6K - VERY original - that motor is 50 years old and has a factory stamp clearly visible. MERCMAN will be kicking himself one day!  Wink I have all the fittings off the boat - if anyone wants castings before I re chrome I am happy to accommodate. cheers Tom

Yes well at the moment I am just establishing what state it is in. It has definitely been to sea. Starter turns it over nicely but I don't have spark, I cleaned up distributor - points were well worn. now I am stuck. Advice is to assess state of water jacket and gear box - maybe just a parts motor.
I have a lead on 1968 1000 - as you know they look mighty fine.
thanks for the reply

I have pulled up the floor and the stringers will need replacing, transom as well. It will be all good fun yes?

Here is my other project - There are no stamps or plates to identify but it must be a De Havilland?
14ft and all rivets. I have not been able find out a real lot about De Havillands.
