While Evinrude concentrated on the mechanical and engineering aspects of thenew firm, he entrusted the bookkeeping and business end of the firm to his assistant, Bessie Cary. The story surrounding Evinrude's invention of the outboard boat engine revolves around a picnic that Cary and Evinrude enjoyed on anisland in Lake Michigan two and one-half miles from shore. Cary expressed adesire for a dish of ice cream and Evinrude rowed back to shore for it. Of course, the ice cream was melted by the time he returned, but Evinrude, inspired by the incident, was determined to design an engine that would replace theoar as a means of boat propulsion
