Default Help w-Outboard ID

Hi All,

This wreck is in 104 feet in Moultonboro, next to at least one other wreck about 20 feet away. Vessel design suggests possible commercial use not recreational-especially with what appears to be heavy-duty railings.

As my ear drum problem persists I have not been able to dive anything this summer but I did fly it with an ROV-screen shots attached. Conditions on the bottom were awful-the snow storm of particulate matter in the water column was really tough. Silt is always a problem.

The OB engine is of a design I don't recall seeing before with some sort of odd handle-bar in front of it. Just strange to me.

Can anybody help me date this OB engine or ID its manufacturer?

Marker flag line weight (this time a small anchor) landed in the boat next to the steering wheel. I note that the wheel is fairly large like a commercial vessel might be and is also vertical not tilted. Does this tell us anything useful?

More to come about this wreck and other wrecks found in Meredith Bay this summer.

Thanks.

Looks like an old Merc. To me.

Old Mercury. Let me see if I can pull up an example for you.
