    Hey JFL and MDB29, help me out here. Got thinking about Mercury's Plant number system. Plant 1 was Cedarburg Mfg, 2, Cedarburg Die Cast, 3, FDL Warehouse, 4, FDL Hickory Street Mfg, 5, Oshkosh Mfg, 5A, Oshkosh Mfg, 6, Oshkosh Engineering, 7, St. Cloud Plastics, 8, FDL Foundry, 9 ??? 10, FDL Offices, don't think there was an 11, 12, FDL Engineering, 13, None., 14, Stillwater, 15 FDL Assembly, 16 FDL Snowmobiles, 17, FDL Die Cast, 18, ???, no 19, then skip to 30, Lake X, 33, OSH Boathouse, 36 OSH Racing, 37, Placida, 64, OSH Test, 98, Propellers. Probably Belgium and Australia had numbers?

    I believe we were #38 at Mercury Racing, 20 Wisconsin St., Oshkosh.

    Engineering under Dick Snyder, "The Blue Room" and propeller development, were originally in the same building as #5 in Oshkosh, but was called #33. I think they got their own building on the river between #5 and #38 in the mid seventies.

    That is Up, Up and Away,but that fancy paint job was applied right after the 1970 Havasu OWC. Billy Don Pruett rad it at Havasu in 1971 with that basic paint scheme. He blew it over and that was the last anyone saw of that boat.
