Boats and Motors For Sale
All boats and motors are sold without any warranty as these are special equipment used for racing purposes and are considered antiques.
We have for sale our last Aeroliner model 510. This boat only has four heats of racing and is offered at $2,250 plus delivery fully equipped. A picture of the boat can be found on our NEWS page.
We can supply a rebuilt Mercury Mark 20H conversion which is what we used in racing A mod runabout. The engine is not a numbers matching engine but is a correct rebuild that a previous owner stamped the serial number into the block. See the below listing.
Mercury Mark 20H Serial Number 787047
This engine has been rebuilt and test run. New bearings, seals and gaskets have been installed. New water pump including new impeller has been installed. A new cone nut and bearing carrier were used in this rebuild. KA7A carb has been rebuilt, new fuel lines and fuel pump internals were installed. The coils, points and condensers were found in great shape but new Packard 440 leads and boots were installed over new surface gap spark plugs. The crankcase is an early sand cast but the block is a later Hurricane correct padded block. New pistons and rings (standard size) were used. The crankshaft and flywheel were some of the best looking used parts I have seen in quite some time. New Mercury reeds were installed and set to factory specifications. The original rubber thumb screws and rubber starter handle are in very nice condition. The paint used is PPG urethane blended from scanning original parts that had not been subject to UV degradation. A custom Spray Shield is installed. There were no welds or cracks found and overall this is an excellent engine that can be used for show or racing.
The magneto is locked down at approximately 0.245" BTDC with a custom built locking setup as well as a custom throttle cable mounting. Included with the engine are the Mercury spark advance parts if that is what you wish to install. We restored this engine as raced many years ago.
Here is a quote from the purchaser, " Nicest motor I have ever seen can't thank you enough, top notch".
We also have a few nice stainless steel props available, still in the Michigan boxes For Sale.
NOS propellers starting at $150 and excellent used propellers starting at $75.
Mercury Mark 55H Serial Number 984444
A real Mark 55H block with a nice machined crankcase. This engine has been completed but is awaiting a tank test. The lower pan, recoil top and front cover have been painted Sun Set Orange by someone prior to our ownership. We have gone through the entire engine. Powerhead bearings appeared to have been recently installed with no run time. New seals were installed as well as new rings on a very nice set of correct pistons. New fuel lines and diaphragm were installed along with new spark plugs, ignition wires, points and condenser. The gear case was rebuilt with all new bearings, seals and impeller. Reproduction serial tag was installed, new tower bushings and newly painted tower. The original style kill switch is installed on the lower cowl. The Bowden wire connector is included as is a nice stainless steel propeller and prop nut. Additional pictures of the engine are available. New decals are included but are not installed incase you wish to repaint the cowls in the correct green paint.
We have a non numbers matching Mark 55H For Sale
This engine is painted in the correct green and tan colors. The block and crankcase are not original Mark 55H parts. The crankcase has been machined to accommodate the KA7A carbs and looking at the power head you can not tell this is not a real 55H engine. There are no cracks or welds on the engine. Main bearings were replaced as were the gaskets and seals. The flat top piston were very clean but we did replaced the rings and the cylinders were given a light hone to create a nice crossing pattern. The lower unit was rebuilt with all new bearings, seals, water pump, impeller, cone nut, bearing carrier and driveshaft. New fill and vent screws were installed. The thumb screws are in fair condition and the serial tag is a re-stamp installed by a previous owner. New Packard 440 plug wires were installed with new fuel lines and a fuel pump diaphragm kit. An after market throttle connection clamp is installed.
Price $3,450 plus S/H
Some of our previous restorations and sales
1959 Sid Craft short sponson D Stock or C Mod Hydro
This great boat is nearly all original. We have replaced the decks, cowl, combings and floor board. The bottom, ribs, chines, transom and sponsons are original. The boat was varnished and the original red paint was restored, the front rub rail is a very close replacement for the original. The transom and the sides of the cockpit were painted red as they were when we purchased the boat. Installed in the boat is a vintage Quincy throttle and a Kainer steering wheel. New vinyl coated steering cable and stainless steel throttle cable have been installed. The pulleys are NOS Perko and restored Keller tiebacks have been installed. The original fuel tank retainer is in the boat and we added black high density padding on the front of the floor board. Original aluminium transom handles and a new bow handle are included as are new tie down eyes for the engine. The Sid Craft metal tag is on the original dash. The white 1959 style Mark 55H is also For Sale. This engine was built for us by Doug Kay and leaves nothing to be desired, it would be hard to find a better 55H then this one. Included with the engine is a nice stainless steel two bladed propeller and a painted Mercury steering bar.
