Remarks: Part of the "Shaw Collection" as SHAW 8, donated by Florence Shaw of Stamford, CT, from the collection of Richard Shaw Jr. Originally listed under Temporary Card 2001.1.temp.1. Ten cubic-inch quad opposed-cylinder construction. Weight: 43 lbs. Original price: $182.50. Note: RPM, Bore, Stroke, Weight and Original price taken from "Beautiful Outboards" by Peter Hunn, page 79. This engine was designed as a smooth running fishing motor, and as such was very popular during the 1940's. However, a lack of routine maintenance and extended exposure to salt water could turn it into an extremely troublesome machine.
