Before and after pic's of a 1913 Evinrude 2 HP Rowboat Motor . This was during the era of transition from oars to mechanical propulsion. These motors were patent in 1911 and variations were built until 1922. All of the gold bling you see is either bronze or brass .. (All Buffed and Polished by Hand) Cast Aluminum was used to make the Exhaust Manifold. I replaced 95% of the fastening hardware that was not Brass with Brass or Stainless (all polished). Compression is a bear, (That is why they call them (Knuckle Busters, do to kickback) the water pump runs off of a cam located in the lower unit . Hence it can be started in Forward or Reverse ... It is all original RBM except the Brass Muffler, it is a reproduction. The Decals are exact reproductions.

A Client who lives in Florida purchased this RBM from and commissioned me to restore it ... So here it is .... Enjoy !! ... <'TK><
