In 1959 Evinrude celebrated their golden anniversary (50th) with the 50 hp V4 Starflite being the Flagship model. Better do your math again[

Red Sox won, Celtics are on a roll, Bruins are playing well, we have to let NY have something or else they will self destruct

Im just glad an American classic is making a comeback like Harley. Maybe not that big of a comeback.

its funny how living in the US how demanding we are as customers. I travel to alot of small wierd islands and you see all kinds of wierd outboards like DIHATSU. Outboards that you just dont see in the US. These guys run the crap out of these motors and use chicken wire and bubble gum to keep them running and they swear by these motors. In the US if a decal is pealing off we scream warrenty and tell everyone what a pile the motor is.
