Johnson QD Series 10 HP Seahorse History


Seahorse QD with Ship Master Remote

The Johnson Seahorse QD was manufactured from 1949-1963 and were OMC's flagship line of motors.  These made after 1959 had a new cowling but the rest is pretty much the same.  They were made to be operated with a standard tiller, or optional "Ship Master Remote".

The motor for my project was purchased from eBay at a cost of $150 and local pickup near my home.  You save a lot of money if you can avoid shipping.
