EVINRUDE OUTBOARD MOTORS
Over a hundred years of innovation.
Ole's wife and long time business partner, Bess, passes away due to illness.
The automatic choke is introduced on large Evinrude engines. The choke has a vacuum control that holds it in the open position while the engine is running, but allows the choke to close each time the engine is stopped. This allows instant starting whether the engine is hot or cold. Hu Entrops sets a new world record for unlimited class outboards by hydroplaning 114.65 mph with the Evinrude Starflite II model engine on the Evinrude Starflite III boat.
