If you were ever at Calumet Island in the 60’s when it was a full fledged marina, you might recall the Gale outboard engines on the fiberglass workboat and taxi runabout. I ran across a neat site that features toy models of these neat engines. Take a look for a glimpse of outboard history. You can find them at
As I recall, the island’s taxi boat used a 60hp Gale and the workboat a 25 hp. I believe for a short period, the taxi boat had twin Gale’s! If you recall these engines, feel free to comment!
