Waterman Marine Motor Company produced the first commercially successful outboard motors. The company was located at 1506-1512 Fort W. in Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan. The company was incorporated on November 5, 1906 with a capital of $40,000. Cameron B. Waterman, the inventor and developer, served as president. Harvey Miller was the vice-president and treasurer and L. K. Butler was the secretary.

The company also built inboard powered canoes.

the balls are to allow more air flow (but not fuel) as speed increases, thus keeping the proper fuel to air ratio.
