A Boat Motor That Blends A Fine Cocktail

Anyone with a boat powered by a vintage Johnson motor will tell you that a well-maintained outboard engine can last decades. When its does finally die, don’t discard it. Convert it into the best-looking blender ever.

Spotted on Etsy is the above 1958 18 HP Johnson outboard motor that was gutted and modded into a blender. The original 18 HP engine was removed and replaced with a blender-friendly Homelite 2-cycle motor. The blender uses the original tiller handle, kill switch, choke and throttle to control the blending. Anyone who has operated a boat motor will appreciate the custom exhaust, which was installed to keep the noise level to a minimum. And that paint job is simply splendid.

The designer of this unique blend of technologies is offering up one unit for a whopping $US2800.
