From a former Evinrude exec in a Engineering History article:
Back then we didn't make many changes in the outboards. In fact, the model that Ole Evinrude sold in 1909 remained approximately the same until about 1912 when he added a skeg on the gearbox to ward off obstructions.
Never mind, from another boat forum...
