    Thumbs up 96 classic 16 o/b w/69 Merc 1250

    For my first thread I wanted to show my '96 16 o/b (yes 1996 o/b) with my low hour original 1969 Merc 1250. Being a long time Merc mechanic and inline 6 fan I decided to retro my 16 to try and resemble the original 16 o/b baby except for the seating arrangement which mine has 2+2 seats but with the red upholstery color I think it pops. excuse some of the pics as I could'nt snap a full on side shot in the garage, but I focused on the 1250. Lets just say after about 6 yrs starts and stops due to time & money neither of which I had much of until finally finishing in early 2008. It was a love hate relationship and (I love my Donzi) to get a 35+ y/o Merc to fit and rig properly on a 3" thick transom, transom bracket, jack plate out of the question for me. but with much thought and no modification to the transom it just fits. Enjoy the pics and let me know what you think, Rick.
