Two Peters to thank for preserving the motors and info on Australian Outboards. Pete Hunn has written "The Old Outboard Book" and it's available by mail order. I hope he doesn't mind the occasional use of his research on Aussie material in the third edition discussed to help us identify our Outboards. So it's important to check that it is no earlier than the third edition when you order.

Peter Alexander has an Outboard museum at Loch Sport on the Gippsland lakes in Victoria and it's well worth a visit. Many of the Loch Sport outboards are represented in the book. I'm sure most of the information was derived from Peter Alexander. As you'd imagine, Peter's got some amazing literature also.

Amazing Michael to see how many outboards we produced. I read this book a few years ago, but my retention is a bit hap hazard.
