    Default FB Find; OSHA Nightmare

    Just saw this on the FB Marketplace.

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/4592...7820703751386/

    1904 Wm P Bernard rowing skiff

    $10,000

    This is a completely restored 1904 rowing skiff and 1915 Aerothrust outboard motor. Museum quality piece for the serious collector. A real hit at all the antique boat shows. Only known example of a Bernard boat to survive. Aluminum trailer included.

    What a cool setup!

    I wonder if it's a period trailer as well?

    Love the boat. The motor not so much... maybe in another context. Like, by itself.

    Does it come with a set of really good earplugs?

    It’s been bouncing around FB for a while,…. Too bad the boat has been glassed.

    Is that a 2 stroke? I don't see any valve gear. It must be amazingly loud.

    Yep, 2-stroke. Original instructions tout advantages of not having separate lube:

    - and at $50 new what a bargain that is! (1915 US$ in 2021 ~ $1,350)

    That is incredibly cool.

    I like that the two seats on the thwarts face backwards. It's probably not such a bad idea for the passengers to keep a close eye on their helmsman.
