Moscone, the Vespa of the sea

It's summer! Time for boating. No, it's not. 
But since this is a Moscone from Piaggio I had to buy it. It's a 100 cc producing 3,3 hp at 4 000 rpm. I believe that it's from the early 1950's. The information on the early outbord motors from Piaggio is very scarce. I haven't found out how many that they built.

La Vespa di mare!
Moscone translates to "Bluebottle" as Vespa means "Wasp" and Ape means "Bee".

The gas tank with a stylish logo.
At least they branded this product properly.
A friend had the missing covers for the string and the carb.
