View Full Screen Mode for Highest Resolution. HDR Switch to view 0 Value Exposure. Zoom to view close up details. Homemade, Boat was Handcrafted using Bald Cypress. Powered by an Early 1900's Single Cylinder, 4 Horse Power Motor Go Engine, Originally built by Lockwood Ash. MORE HISTORY on Engine: The Lockwood Ash of Jackson, Michigan was founded in 1904. They manufactured a single, a twin and later a four cylinder marine inboard engine, for 12 to 30 foot boats. These engines were sold under the Lockwood Ash brand to dealers and boat builders. It was also sold under the "Motorgo" brand to Sears-Roebuck. Ranges were from 6 to 30 horsepower. They also made a row-boat outboard motor from 1914 through 1926. In 1927 Mr.Ash sold his holdings to Mr.Lockwood, who expanded the outboard line to include larger horsepower outboards under the Lockwood name. In 1929 the Lockwood Outboard Motor Company merged with Elto and Evinrude to form OMC (Outboard Motor Company). Ole Evinrude became the President and Stephen Briggs (of Briggs and Stratton) was the CEO. With the depression at hand the Lockwood Outboard was discontinued as a brand in 1930. We are not sure if some manufacturing took place after 1930 or if they had some left over production, but Lockwood motors showed up in the early 30's with the Sea King brand names from Evinrude. Sea King was sold through Montgomery Wards. The Large Heavy Black Fly Wheel you see on the Front engine was used to start the Engine. If you turned the Fly Wheel to the Right the boat would go Forward. If you stopped the Engine and Turned the Fly Wheel to the Left to start it the Boat would go in Reverse. Only One of many old wooden boats captured at The Old Wooden Boat Exhibit featured yearly in Franklin Louisiana. It even features boats from out of state. Thanks for Viewing. Comments Welcomed!

This is magnificent...I worked as a Yacht Broker for 6 years during the beginning of Digital cameras, mostly low level point and suit cameras were available. If we could have presented our boats for sale at this level I doubt we would ever have missed a sale, who could resist. This is outstanding and shows the timber and the engine detail so well. Don't know the Motor Go Engine but we saw a few Simplex engines in Australia from the old days which were considered beautiful in themselves. Here the engine is enhanced by the HDR process. Thanks for sharing this.
