  Nichols Outboard Engineering: Complete machine shop services for outboard motors.

The accuracy and reliability of our machine work is why boat dealers, racers, and individual boat owners from all over the country ship their outboard engines to Nichols Outboard Engineering.

Our services range from specialized modifications of high performance racing outboard engines, to rebuilding blown outboard engines on fishing and pleasure boats.

Racers come to us because with racing motors turning 10,000+ RPM there is no margin for error. We put the same precision into stock outboards. That is why many of our customers are boat dealers and repair shops. When they need machine work they know they will have to stand behind the work so they choose Nichols Outboard Engineering for boring, sleeving, porting and other serious machine work.

If you have a blown outboard motor you can ship us the entire engine or take it to your regular mechanic and request Nichols outboard engineering for the machine work. Most shops send the block out for machine work so you might as well get the best, your final cost will probably be about the same and you can rest easy knowing the core of your rebuild is rock solid.
