This is the Nissan outboard that was on the boat when I bought it. Note the offset location. Although it had electric start, it was a hassle to use because stern pushpit interfered with access. After-market throttle extension shaft help, as did my home-made gear shift extension.
I own "Narrow Escape", berthed in the Alamitos Bay Marina, Long Beach, CA.
I'm retired after a 40-year career as a journalist, the last 30 years at the Los Angeles Times. I now work intermittently as a disaster public information specialist for FEMA.
