I think he needs the side rails. He is about to fall out....what a waste of a good boat! I thought I had problem getting to a plane loaded, but that is the other end of the spectrum!

Good job with Photoshop.

Back then....I would not doubt that photo at all. If it was photoshop, I doubt they would pick a red 60hp or whatever it is. Nobody realized the consequences of overpowering back then. If the transom did not rip off in a day, she was good.

Never thought a 13' could ride a rail like that. Not an old photo being the pontoon in the background and 4 numbers on the boat(back a ways it was only 3).

The photos are perfectly contemporary. They come from an antique Mercury Outboard web site and the motor is obviously a restored motor being run around some lake somewhere.

For the record, the motor in question is from the late 1950's and is a Mark 75 which is a 60 hp motor (at the powerhead.) Not really that extraordinary.

The one odd thing is the amount of bank in that turn. 13's don't normally run like that, I wonder if the motor is a 20" shaft and if that's contributing.

WoooHooo! I just guessed on the 60hp. Anyway I agree Tom, that rail riding puzzled me also. Normally a 13 will just slide when turned that hard, especially with the engine in a inward trim position. I doubt they made a 15" 60hp but they could have. Is that one of those groovy engines that the distributor rotates 180 to start the engine backwards for reverse?
