1970’s – 14′ Crestliner with a white 22 hp Mercury Outboard
A photo of a 14′ Crestliner boat with a white 22 HP Mercury Engine.
The 22 HP engine actually had enough power with a three bladed lower pitched propeller to pull a skier with 2 people in the boat. Gramted. the skier had to be fairly good.
The engine was fairly reliable. One problem was that the rubber over the kill switch deteriorated over the years. If you were wet, it was a battle of wills to hang on while getting shocked long enough to kill the engine.
