On September 17th, the Western Reserve Chapter of the Antique Outboard Motor Club International (AOMCI) held a meet at Leesville Lake. Leesville is limited to 10 horsepower………so what will a bunch of guys do with 10 horsepower outboards? RACE THEM, of course !
The fastest boat was Bill Rice's MERCURY KG-7. Rated at 10 horsepower, the KG-7 actually produces 16 horsepower at rated RPM, but will do 19 to 21 on a dyno "wide open".
Also seen in this video is a GarWood aluminum boat with a nice 1956 Johnson QD-17 (10 horsepower) on it.
