Why Don’t You Come Up Sometime And See This Outboard?

Is that an outboard in your pocket? Okay okay, guess what today is about. A Mae West outboard on eBay! Now I have to admit, I knew some of Mae Wests quotes, but as I was prepping this story. WOW, she was fantastic and had some amazing lines. Genus,!

The Waterwitch or “Mae West” as it was often called referring to the actress ample curves was Sears & Roebucks brand name outboard motor. The first Water Witch went on sale in their 1933 catalog.

The seller knows his or her stuff and I am not sure how fast it can move that chair across the lake. But who cares, This is purely about the art of it all and would look amazing on the back of a perfect boat.
And for those who don’t know Mae West. Enjoy the lines!

    We have all seen the outboard on an inverted table trick, but I am a little skeptical about how well the chair is going to work. I think they need to strap some skis to it.

    The motor is beautiful but her comments are priceless, definitely some I hadn’t heard before. Between yesterday’s commercial video and today’s clip WoodyBoater is doing right by the cinema arts.

    Matt, they left out the one where she’s dropping off her coat at a nightclub, and the hatcheck girl sees her jewelry and says, “Goodness what diamonds!”
    Mae responds, “Goodness had nothing to do with it, honey.”

      An outboard! Let’s not forgot that 90% of recreational power boats made were powered with an outboard. And as you can see, they have a style all their own, all out in the open for everyone to see. No wonder there is also an Antique Outboard Motor Club International. Inboards are great, but there is a whole other world out there with Antique and Classic outboards.

    When these were actually being used (and serviced) My dad always used to substitute a “B” for the “W”.
