That's a beautiful hydro Michael. Very well done. The finish looks like its a foot deep. Do you have any more pics of it to share?

Last year I submitted a model boat photo....this is a different model.

The real boat is 11 feet,  and this one is 17 inches.

The 1961 Merc 400 on a '59 Inland Boat Works Style Master Honduran Mahogany.  This is the best shot I have on hand and with the motor torn down right now...anything current just won't be impressive, ha!

1960 Merc 100 on a 1951 AlumaCraft Model F.  Boat and motor came together and except for a new water pump and spark plugs, are both in unrestored original condition!  
I took this picture a week ago, 9/8/2021, on Keuka Lake, NY.  8-)

1959 Mark 58ae
My father bought this in 59 and gave it to me in 79.
It has extremely low hours to be 62 years old.
Last year I, rebuilt the carburetors, replaced fuel lines,
replaced coil,points,condenser,timing belt, impeller.
I also painted it and top it off with a new decal.

If this was my photo - I'd have it framed 3x2 and mount it above our fireplace, to my wife's unending horror, haha!

Nice KB4 Navy Motor you have there. If you don't mind sharing, what's the B.U. # on your tag?

Hey MercFam - any chance you could PM me some closer shots of your deck-to-sides edging?  That looks like you are using a piece of teak or the like...my '59 Inland Style Master came with metal that had been sprayed over with polyurethane at least 10 times during it's first 60 years of life before I bought her...they were trash the second I tried taking them off for a restore.  I've been looking for something nicer to use and if I could steam-bend some wood edging I'd be super-interested in what that looks like up close.  Appreciate it!  

Great looking craft, by the way.  But you surely already knew that.   :D
