Saw This On EBay Today ...

a restored Johnson Sea Horse 5 horsepower outboard motor from the late 1940s. This is from the good old days when most fisherman did not own a boat. They would buy a small outboard and gas tank and put it in the trunk of the car when they wanted to go fishing and drive to a lake or river and rent a boat at one of many fishing camps. My dad went on many such fishing trips after he was discharged from the service at the end of WWII. He did not own an outboard, but his best friend did!

That's a beautiful motor! I'd have snagged it as well. I hope it creates some good memories for your family.
