Re: 29th December 2010 (am)

Thanks H-A, I did view the Lerryn site pics but didn't know if that was you as Darth Vader.
Any pics of the winning vessel in it's prime? What a buzz for you, desingning and building something to whip certain folks' arses.

Again, well done. :evil:

No hints required, just didn't realise this was a forum for speaking Dickens. Up here, as you say, we talk to cummunicate, not to indulge in a linguistic rant, losing the point of question asked.

Re: 29th December 2010 (am)

Sadly my friend it looks like you might be in a predicament. I think one of the posts was trying to say John won't be their, even though the words were jumbled. Rosbull' would certainly have helped had he been contacted earlier. As for the last post, I don't know what it's meant to say, sounds like ...

Re: PISTON RING,S

Wullie, it sounds like the rings are solid so it will take a really good soaking in whatever you fancy, I use petrol/diesel mix. I mean a real good soak, 2 or 3 weeks. I had this problem and when they did start springing out I tried to help them along with a feeler guage (bad idea), with about 1/2" ...

Re: Exhaust seal

As you will read in many parts of this forum, if it doesn't leak oil it's not a seagull.
It's part and parcel of owning a seagull. The oil will always find a way out especially down at the bottom of the exhaust. No gaskets or seals can stop this.

Re: 29th December 2010 (am)

Sounds like a bit of fun is on the cards. We won't complain if one or all of you guys hit us with some pics. Sadly it was too far for us northern boys to travel. I did have the idea of bringing the wife for a wee break, and spectate, but the flu has struck us. Good luck to those participating, "may ...

Re: 40+

Hey guys, it's called the lake district because there's a few stretches of water. That's a project I might take on in the Spring, I'm 2/12 - 3 hours from their.

Re: 40+

There's not many of us by what I've seen, but who knows, we might one day have enough guys to have a seagull day north of Portsmouth.

Keep us informed of your progress. :twisted:

Wullie, a good soak in petrol/diesel is great for releasing stuff in these old engines. Good luck with you 40+

Re: Rare Opportunity!

Looks like someone trying to earn a quick buck. As much as Ilike the thought of owning a new seagull, I prefer life. My missus would do 15 years without any fuss if I dared ask. :wink:

Re: My next boat

Hi Phil

I've no experience but the guys are keeping right. I saw the stuff you linked which made my eyes water, they look a bit advanced for the novice builder.

Re: My next boat

Just spent a bit of time searching for free Hal Kelly hull designs, could only get pics of some of his boats. Maybe it's me but it looks like these boats have quite a bit of wood in their construction, thus meaning weight. Would you agree?
