Many of us here have been to Donaldsonville, La
and had great weekends once a year attending J.B.'s annual get togethers, and look forward to many more, Jamie Hurry sent me this 1956 ad to post here, Its an ad for J.B.'s Fathers outboard
business in the location where JB's shop is today.
It's in the DNA !

I was 6 years old then Richard, but I spent a lot of time in the shop with him. Always enjoyed motors. Thanks for posting.

Another generation, my grandfather, though not marine engines.


Below is a link to an interview with him.

Interesting; so the leverage of load pushes down on the shafts when lifting forward? Surprising that a load could be swung out to nearly 90 without tipping it over, but it looks like the horse & shafts are on the "outboard" corner of the cart, so that way the horse/donkey/mule acts as ballast when lifting sideways?

Robert, this is a very early design, they evolved, later were 4 wheel carts, last design had pneumatic tires. If you look at the one in front of the building it has an "outrigger wheel". The one in the parts list below has a concrete counterweight that swung with the boom, #41 in the picture. Richard, I have one of these in parts, 4 steel wheels, needs to be blasted and assembled.
