Yep that looks like it! Thanks for that.
So they did have a windscreen!
Been overseas so just logged on again.
Just for interest, I was keeping an eye out while away and found these in York.
Not as cute as mine but...

Now thats cute!
We did play with the idea of taking the cabin off ours!
Went to Berlin Technological Museum and they had some interesting outboard there!

Another Question!
Any idea of the year the boat is?
I arrived on on my wife's family scene around 1980 and they already had the boat then bought second hand.
It never had a windscreen or drivers seat. I think this photo I just found must be when he first got it.
Thanks!!

Thanks Mercman (again)!
Pop and his sons fixed up a bunch of EH's in the day. If you look closely there is one behind the boat in bits.
Wife almost got an EH ute for her first car. Ow how I wish…….

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.

I would think the outboard date as Mercman stated would be correct for the Kingfisher. See the photo ( members boats ) I posted of the factory production line with a few kingfishers in the finishing section.
Great photo of your pop, EH and boat.

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.
