I'm with you on all of that.
Enjoy Sunday, I wish I could join you. MERCMUM and I are still painting windows adjacent a new deck which has been built at the rear of our house.
The who guy installed the solar hot water on the garage roof for the pool earlier this week, will be installing the pump today, it will be all completed shortly. Yeeha!

Hi AA,
Think about this... your top sides will get 100% more direct sun light than your hull ever will.

Hi Neil,
What an absolute joke wind generated electricity is in SA. What an absolute shame SA closed most of their power stations because of pressure from the so called greenies.

The management from the huge Adelaide Convention Centre were having to constantly apologise to the delegates and guest speakers for the flickering lights and general power issues during the 3 day event.
Attending the event were Professors, Students, CEO's and Government representatives from places such as Asia, Europe and America. The quality and reliability of the electricity supply was most embarrassing for the Aussies attending the event.

Back to: The cost of booze.
On Tuesday evening, I was at the Adelaide Casino with a business collegue. It was my shout, I ordered 1 x Scotch (on the rocks) and 1 x Peroni draught beer.
Guess what?  $34.00  As you can guess, we left there pretty quick.

To my knowledge, older OMC cables are all the same except for length. Please correct me if I'm wrong Mark or Oldenrude.

I couldn't have a beer at home, as it was 918 kms from where I was!

I have some OMC cables in stock. Let me know what length you require and I'll have a fossick through to see what I can help you with.

Sorrento eh? MERCMUM and I, plus a whole bunch of friends stayed in Portsea for 3 nights during March this year. The beers were $9 each at the Portsea Pub!

The real Sorrento in Italy was far better, including the shopping!

My reason for not showing the exact year model is: all decals remained unchanged for three year models. (1970, 1971 and 1972) Primarily because Mercury were very busy throwing all of their energy and efforts into the design, development, prototypes etc for their game changing V6. The base of which is still in production today.

Yeah, I see the other EH now.

On further investigation, I found over a quarter of a million EH's were built from 1963 - 1965.

In 1964 my Dad had an EH Station Wagon 179ci with three on the tree, as a Company Car. Dad travelled over 100,000 miles in that car before the first set of spark plugs were changed. His second Company Car was a HK Station Wagon 161ci with three on the tree. I was driving his HK around the local streets when I was only 12 years of age. Dads third Company Car was a HQ Kingswood Station Wagon 202ci with traumatic transmission. Arr... those were the days.

AA,
Whitworths appear to have the same item. At least with Whitworths, you can take your entire assembly to them and they will determine if you actually need to purchase a full kit, or just a new cable itself. https://www.whitworths.com.au/main_itemdetail.asp?item=82356&search123=steering+&intAbsolutePage=1

Pretty much all steering wheels will fit the morse taper & key way on.

As for your throttle cable.. as with Merc and OMC, Throttle and Shift Cables are the same, but not between brands, nor electric shift, of course!
I have a reasonable selection of Merc and OMC Control Cables in stock. Let me know the length you are chasing and I'll check at this end for you.

I'd be using a water based paint. After all, you boat will be in the water. OMG.

MERCMAN.
