    “In 1907, he (Ole Evinrude, dhg) invented the first practical and reliable outboard motor, which was built of steel and brass, and had a crank on the flywheel to start the two-cycle engine. In 1907 he had built his first gasoline-powered outboard motor, and two years later, Evinrude Motor Company was founded in Milwaukee.”

    I remember the tale his date remembered she forgot something after he rowed our to an island in the middle of a lake, he got tired of rowing, invented the outboard motor, don’t know if he finished his date.

    If that;s one and the same Evinrude, then the strip can hardly be set in the middle ages.

    The anachronisms are part of what make this and BC so much fun, though!

    Thanks for the explanation. Now I really get the joke. Oh, and Mr. Evinrude — you can just be grateful that the captain doesn’t want to go water-skiing!

    My last Evinrude was 3.6 liters, 300 HP, V8 two stroke…

    Aren’t the rowers facing in the wrong direction? The power is on the back stroke, but they’re facing the front of the boat. It looks like the man in white is standing on the poop.

    Unless that stick in his hand is supposed to be the rudder, he’s in the bow.

    “The Rescuers” – He pushed a big leaf around on the water as if it were a boat, and he was the “outboard motor”. We thought that was very clever – a fun part of the movie.

    You still had to smell that stinking gas-oil mix? How sorry I am for you. ‘Been watching a parked boat across the street — hasn’t been out in two years. Best two times to have a boat: When you buy it and when you sell it.
