I Must Get This Boat Motor Blender for My Kitchen

How much power does a man need to make summer cocktails? How many Hawaiian short-sleeve shirts? How much badassery? NOT ENOUGH, I SAY! Which is why I need this blender, made with an old-school 1958 Johnson outboard motor:

I started this project with a classic 1958 Johnson outboard, and removed all of the original motor and drive gears. The blender is now powered by a new Homelite 2-cycle motor. I used the original tiller handle to operates the throttle, and the original choke lever operates the choke, and the original kill button will stop the motor. The motor is rubber mounted and a custom exhaust system exits out of the bottom of the housing to a Honda generator muffler to keep the sound muffled. Everything was bead blasted and powder coated for a very durable finish, and original decals complete the authentic look. This took 6-months to engineer and build.


The best part: You can buy the damn thing! It's $2800, but frozen cocktail glory always come at a high price. [Etsy via Neatorama via Walyou]


That's cool and all, but the first question/answer at the top the article doesn't make sense. How much power do you need? Not enough? You need not enough power? I know, I'm a dick. :-)
