PIE RAT MOTORS
Thank you for coming to my page. You're going to see my boat called the Pie Rat sailing, and some of my outboard motor collection. You will even see a picture of my 2 trophy winning/Antique Outboarder magazine cover motor, a Mercury Mark 10A.
The Pie Rat is a 10 foot long boat called a Dyer. Since it is 10 feet long, it is a Dyer Dink. It can hold a 4 hp outboard, be a sailboat, or be a rowboat.
My boat is named after my favorite book as a kid, Pie Rats Ahoy by Richard Scarry.

Motoring the old Oddjob
I'm very good at rowing. Here I am taking my grandmother out for a row in her boat, Googie. When you like old outboards like me, it's good to know how to row!
Here I am a while ago with some of my Mercury outboards. (1973 4.0 and 1966 3.9)
And HERE is my award winning Merc (A 1959 Mark 10-A 10hp). It won at the 2004 AOMCI East Sidney Dam NY/Knucklebuster Chapter Meet. It also won during the 2008 Yankee Chapter meet in Shelton Ct for 1955-1959 Original Condition - the theme of the meet that year was Mercury outboards.
At home, running a nice Johnson in the test tank. (1963 with '65 tank, Johnson JW 3hp) It's a weedless drive. it ended up in an exchange for a favorite, my 1952 Martin "20".
Here is a picture of my 1957 Scott-Atwater 7.5 hp with Bail-a-Matic and the original gas tank. It is a "space age" outboard. It was one of the strangest outboards I've had. My dad gave it to me as a present on my 6th birthday. He has come to think it is one the worst outboard he ever saw after fixing the waterpump - but I sort of like it.
Here is one of my former finds, a 1946 Fireston 3.5hp. This was the first motor I completly disassembled and reassembled myself! It ran great and was a lot of fun to work on.
