"Ollie" enjoying a leisurely
cruise on Robinson Lake, White Cloud, Michigan June 16, 2006.
Aboard the Museum's "Blue Barge" were the Curator and Tim Irwin of
Greensburg, Indiana. Tim was photographing Antique Outboard
Motor Club member Jim Hickman skipping across wakes while testing
his 6 cylinder Mercury 'Dockbuster' mounted on his pristine Lone
Star runabout prior to an AOMC Wolverine Chapter meet on Mona Lake,
Norton Shores, MI, the next day. Tragically, Jim was killed in
an auto accident in Nebraska just 3 weeks or so later. He is
sorely missed by all who knew him.
