Mecury 3.3 HP outboard

S O L D !!
Mercury (2-cycle, 41 lbs.) looks and runs like new. Don't pay $900 for a new one when you can have this one for $350...and, yes, it starts and runs as great as it looks!!
(Think 3.3 HP is too small for your cabin boat? I used a 2.75HP as a spare to power my MacGregor 25 when my "primary motor" was in the shop for a new impeller or "carb kit"-- it worked fine for getting in and out of the my slip on Dock 5)
To listen to it purr, or for more details, contact Bill Vokac at bvokac@HOTMAIL.COM or (217) 369-0015 (217) 369-0015 (CELLPHONE)

Events Enjoyed:

CLSA's Valley Forge Forage: (2-15-09)

Paul and George Wissmiller pose in front of the trail marker just before walking the Houseboat Cove (Twin Horn Bay) Hiking Trail along the wooded shoreline of Clinton Lake. The 2.4 mile loop took about an hour and a half -- which allowed a stop at the bench on the point to enjoy the sun-kissed - lake view.
The CLSA Valley Forge Forage was initiated by Bill and Sarah Freyman
(now-retired educators who have relocated to Door County, WI) and is normally scheduled on the Sunday nearest President's Day each year. Even in the worst weather, a few brave souls walk the trail and pick up refuse left by others. Most years, a dozen sailors attend and quickly form a fast group and a slower group, depending on walking ability and pauses along the trail to photograph or simply enjoy unusual sights.
