"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.
