    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    One of my all time favorite outboard motors! 9.5 or 9.9 HP depending on the year and could be the definition of Bullet Proof!

    Some how it kind of figures a guy who has that old Evinrude would appreciate the TW. Old school simplicity that just works. That is my other hobby, buy, fix and flip older OMC outboards.

    Not too sure i can believe in the motor that does fire on water. Water does not burn and cannot be compressed so I have to think there is a good deal more to this.

    Mine is a 9.5. They are even more bulletproof than the 9.9 because they are so lightly stressed. Max Wawrzyniak says they actually produce less than 8 hp. That's enough to push either of my two 14' aluminum V-hull boats without using too much fuel.

    "This does not pass the smell test. The average motorcycles gets about 35 to 40 mpg (gasoline), but let's say his bike gets 60 mpg. The approximate energy equivalence is about 1 kilogram (Kg) of hydrogen equals 1 gallon of gasoline. So it would take 1 Kg of hydrogen for his bike to travel 60 miles and a little more than 5 Kg to travel 310 miles. The first problem is that 1 Liter of water contains about 0.11 Kg of hydrogen (the rest oxygen; 0.89 Kg). So this 0.11 Kg of hydrogen from 1 Liter of water would only take the bike about 7 miles well short of 310 miles. The second problem is an average 120 amp-hours car battery contains about 1.4 kilowatt-hours of energy and since it takes about 50 kilowatt-hours to produce 1 Kg of hydrogen a single charged car battery will only produce about 0.028 Kg of hydrogen, only enough for his bike to travel about 1.7 miles. In total it would actually take about 44 liters of water and 180 car battery charges to generate enough hydrogen to travel 310 mile"---my favorite quote from the website's responses. Indeed the math doesn't add up.
    Sao Paulo's River Tete is far and away the nastiest, most polluted body of water I have ever seen, vastly exceeding Rio's Lagoon (stage for some of the summer olympic competitions) where viral counts are 1.7million times stronger than the level which closes southern california beaches. I was watching a dredging operation there once and the number of murdered bodies brought up really slowed down operations when the police would notice and try to retrieve remains. Yuuck! Some of Rio's beaches have the "Black Tide" where eddies of untreated sewage from some eight million plus folks occasionally hug the coast. I won't mention the smells.

    Here's another engine that runs on water. Of course the water must first be processed, but I could take a page from the hydrogen fuellies' playbook and kinda' gloss over that part.
