Jack Craib's Rowboat Motor Information Site
Arrow purchased Waterman in 1917. These catalog examples are after that. Arrow produced motors for two years prior to the Waterman acquisition according to Peter Hunn's book, and the ad below is from 1915.

Example Arrow Photos:

  • Arrow, Ser. # (Jack is putting off fighting his way to the corner where his Arrow is...stay tuned. Strong backed people welcomed to visit...I'll make cookies!)

  • example 2, after buying Waterman this Porto rowboat motor was offered by Arrow

  • off topic: want to see what some old literature looks like when I get it and how we can digitally restore it?
  • Below - ads from 1915 - note the design of their logo on the tank so you can compare it to 1916

  • 1916 ads with the changed logo

  • 1917 full page ad from Motor Boating
