Outboard motor historian details important achievements of early to mid-century engines

“Outboard motor historian Larry Stevenson will be featured every Tuesday evening in August from 7-8:30 p.m. as he presents highlights and history from the Stevenson Outboard Collection at Boothbay Railway Village. These multimedia presentations explore some of the most popular and influential manufacturers of early- to mid-century outboard motors. Afterwards, Stevenson will guide visitors through the Stevenson Outboard Collection for a chance to view the outboard motors discussed in each presentation.”

If you don’t live in the area or missed the discussions, a lot of interesting facts can still be learned from the article. Such as how Evinrude began in business way back in 1909. It is amazing to think just how far outboard motors have come.

Of course, if you want to skip the history lesson and just need a reliable outboard motor, contact Robbinsdale Marine at 763-533-0300. You can also visit our outboard engine page for more information.
