My dad had this beautiful outboard motor from 1961 standing for many years, he found it in the trash.. I need a new winter project so I took it :wink:

Some paint,
Image

fit good
Image

Image

Had a sprocket that fited to the axle, welded on a 12mm socket, that fit to the original drive shaft.
Image

Image

the prop was quite beaten up
Image

reparied it with melted zinc, made a stainless steel form
Image

as new

Excellent conversion, very skilfully done.
You are a very talented welder.
What motor did you use ?
I suspect the boat will be a classic wooden design ?

Nice Work!
I like to see things in a second life instead of trashing.
Saving resources is really what the world needs. Greta woukd like it.
