Thanks!

No idea myself but I think its a "shift interlock".

"A shift interrupter switch momentarily drops the ignition while shifting to reduce drive train strain and hence ease the shifting process."

F470,

Did you ever get these55 hpJohnson outboards?

We will have to make plans to event up on the water soon. My friend picked up a 470 in the Seattle area last week, and we met up on the Columbia River yesterday. God times for sure!!!

I'm considering the trade so that I can fix one of them up and get it running. Does this seem like a good idea? Seem like a good deal? How difficult would it be to find a cowl and tiller for these military motors?

Nice one! I would love to join the local 470 team for an outing some time! I just need to get my motor sorted. I am supposed to hear from the guy as soon as he is ready to move the engines. I will still need cowls and tillers and whatever else is wrong with them. What motors are on the rigs in the picture? Looks sweet! Is one of them yours?

F470,

The far boat in the beach pic is mine and the near boat is my friend's. I'm running a 35 hp Evinrude, and my buddy is running a 40 hp Yamaha.

One F470 is great, two 470's is better, and three boats would be AWESOME!

Here is another pic of both of the boats....

F470,

Here is a long shaft motor that could get you out on the water. It's not an etch, but the price is right. I'm still interested in your used short shaft motor, if you are interested in selling it...

1982 SUZUKI 40HP

How big of a boat are you thinking about? There is currently an 18' Avon 520 on Craigslist in Portland. Will you be looking to sell your F470, if you get a bigger RIB? If so, please let me know because I have a few buddies in the PDX area who are looking for boats.

Here is a "bigger" RIB for you! I saw this at my local boat shop last week.

Yep that's about right size. I wish or not.

18-22. Of course one can buy lot of regular boat for price of decent size used RIB. Pretty sure I would sell my F470.
The only AVON I've seen is 18' CRRC which is not a rib. Is it?
