Saay! is that a Merc-powered Chippendale? Well, any fool can motorboat a table; I want to see him do a bedroom mirror.

This photo was part of 1964/1965 advertising campaign. "Mercury outboards are so good, they will plane a kitchen table." I had a 6 horsepower Merc that would run circles around 9.5 Johnson's and Evinrude's. Motor is at bottom of Toledo Bend Reservoir (Texas/LA border). Thanks for nostalgia.

Must be another illegal immigrant crossing the channel. French customs probably gave him the desk and engine and pointed to England.
