I have seen some old SeaGull motors...I think they were. Stainless steel and beautiful. But the size of a big drill.

That would be my guess.

I think it was Evinrude. His wife decided to commercialize his toy. They came up with " Throw away your oars, use an Evinrude" I have no idea what year.

Ding Ding Ding
It is Evinrude and the date was 1909 when he started. He got a patent in 1911.
How it all began.
