Hey, all. I'm buying a vintage 6 cylinder Mercury OB from a guy in Chetek Wisconsin, and I need to get it to me here in NYC.
Any possibility of someone headed in that direction who could pick it up for me. I could pay some for the extra miles and expenses involved. Also could meet someone part way.

Thanks,
Eric

Try a post on S+F those boys may help you out.

It's a '59 Merc Mark 78A. It's going to go on a 14' to 16' Raveau type plywood runabout that I'm going to build.

S+F is a good idea. Thanks, Greg.

Sounds cool.

Wasn't there a recent article in Wooden Boat on these boats?

Ya know, I believe there was come to think of it. Do you know which issue that was?

Looks like March/April 2011 - which I believe I loaned out to a friend....
