Ockelbo T-14 and Merc 35 twin

Postby Wikingboat » Sun Feb 28, 2016 5:34 pm

An old friend of mine called and told me that he wants to give me his father's old boat. It has not been used for fifteen years.
He said it's mine, if I only make it work again. He told me the location of that boat, it is near my house. So me and my son took the skis and we were off. We found It. Our new project, third one for summer. Or maby for summer -17... My wife wasn't happy at all. I could not refuse.
Ps. When I was much younger, old man told me: "When Mercs die, they go to heaven. When OMC's die they go to hell but when Yamaha's die they go to the lake bottom." :giggle:

Great motor that 1967 Merc 35hp 350.
Mercs are like women, no 2 are exactly alike. That's what testing is about. In general it is safer to test motors and props than women!

I'll second that, my '67 350 never gave me a day of trouble. I like the T14 model too.

It took that long... The seller moved between the minds. -67 Ockelbo T14. It has been in the forest for decades. The keel is cracked.
I need a warm stair or this project will not proceed. The boat is to my youngest son.
