Quin's 2016 season plans

Post by LarryR »

Quin will have his first race at Standish, ME in May. It'll be interesting to see how he likes it.
He is expecting to like it very much, which is sometimes not the best.

He'll be racing a used O'Conner J hydro with an OMC motor with re-worked gear-foot.
This is an old photo when that boat was new - I've faked the side number.

We've also put together a "good" 15 merc powerhead for him with a fresh hone, all new rings, bearings and seals.
The rest of the engine will find it's way into the shop before mid-season when he's ready for it.
We also have a Sorenson runabout for him that will be ready for him when he is ready for it.
little merc shop, Londonderry, NH; 1946 thru 1961 merc restoration :)
