Gale Outboard Motors

   Gale Products became part OMMC (Outboard Marine and Manufacturing Company) around 1936. Located in Galesburg, Illinois, they made products such as the "Lawn Boy" lawnmower and the "shop King" combination home workshop among other products.

   By 1941 OMMC had a well established dealer network for it's Evinrude and Johnson outboard motors. They saw an opportunity to expand outboard sales in to the mass market through outlets like Montgomery Wards. They decided to build and economy priced outboard at the Gale facility in Galesburg. Only through the eyes of a "manufacturer", could they rationalize that this wasn't competing with their own dealers.

   Gale Products manufactured outboard motors from 1941 through 1963. They sold under many name brands through many different sales outlets. Brand names like Brooklure, Buccaneer, Hiawatha, Royal, Saber, Sea Bee, Sea Flyer and Sovereign.

   In the early 1980's OMC (Outboard Marine Corporation) closed the plant in Galesburg, Illinois with the loss of over a 1000 jobs.

   Hard core parts for these outboards are getting more difficult to find as time goes on. Many older outboards used common Ignition and Carburetor venders for that period. Discount Marine Parts has Ignition and Carburetor repair kits for most all of these older outboards. If we don't have what your looking for, we have many sources to locate your part. Obviously some parts are just not available. We can sometimes find it used and often we have the part made if there is enough demand. Discount Marine Parts has a large inventory of parts for most brands of American made Outboards, Inboards and Sterndrives. We also have most parts and service manuals available.
