My business was
founded in 2010 when I inherited a 1970 Johnson 9.5hp motor with
matching 14' Starcraft aluminum boat. After sitting since 1987,
it had a pine tree growing from the original mahogany bench seat and
100lbs of rotting, slimy pine needles. Countless hours later rehabbing
both boat and motor, I spent that summer on the water and realized how
much I enjoyed working on OMC motors.
2013, NH Outboards was formed and began formal business operations
reconditioning small OMC motors up to 25hp. In 2016, the name of the
company changed to Runner Outboards to create a broader name reflecting
the slogan "It's a Runner!," a play on the reaction folks have when
they start a motor that has been left unused for a long time, and a
"tip of the cap" to the durability, reliability, and quality American
product produced by OMC (something that sadly is missing in many of
today's outboard motors). In 2019,
the name was changed from Runner Outboards to
Outboards to reflect the current shop location, with the company logo
updated to a more modern appearance.
My personal vessels are powered by my inventory spanning from the
1950's through the early 2000's. They all work just fine.
They didn't when I
first acquired them, but with service work, they are
reliable daily drivers and ones I enjoy using. I travel regularly
with my boats throughout the northeast and run my personal motors the
way they should.
There's no reason
why you can't enjoy the same experience out of a used motor, so long as
you're willing to care for it and learn a little bit about them as an
operator. You don't have to be a mechanic, you just have to be
willing to understand the basics, no different than caring for a lawn
mower, weed wacker, or chain saw.
If you have an old motor that needs fixing, I'll do what I can to help
