The Antique Outboard Motor Club, Inc., founded by a group of collectors who started corresponding about their hobby in 1960, now has chapters throughout the United States and still continues to grow.

Riggs A. Smith, of Endicott, New York, took over as national president in 1979 following the untimely death of Walter E. Ellis.

Formation of the club took place in 1965. It is now the largest and most active organization in the world that is oriented toward antique outboard motors. It considers motors built prior to 1951 as antiques. Some were made during the late 1800s.

The club issues a quarterly magazine, The Antique Out boarder. It also issues a newsletter eight times a year.

Some members have over 100 motors in their personal collections. Some specialize in certain types or brands. Brands include: Evinrude, Mercury, Johnson, Elto, Clarke, Waterman, Lockwood, Caille, Martin, and Detroiter.
