Playing Trivial Pursuit (Young Players Edition!) today with my daughter we came across a question in the “Science and Technology” category for you!
“Who invented the first successful outboard motor – Ole Evinrude, Lionel Johnson or Clyde Mercury?”
This photo was taken in January. The 12ft green Mirro craft on the right of the photo had a 1969 six horsepower Johnson until last year when it was sadly retired.
Oh, and the answer is: “Ole Evinrude”
