Re: SD restoration

Hello Oyster, your SD looks very nice. Good job on the fuel tank. The possition of the decalls depents of if they were fixed on a Monday or a Friday. It is a man's job, so every Seagull has a different position I think. Keep on going. I hope to sail with my SD next week, if the weather is OK. As the...

Re: 11ft clinker build dingy

Some detail pictures of the stern and other parts. Hints and tips are very welcome. I think it's a good idea to remove the rotten part of the stern and insert a new piece of wood. I have no idea what kind of wood is used. Any idea to glue a piece of plywood over the original stern after repair the o...

11ft clinker build dingy

The transom is rotten away and half the oak ribs are broken. Much work has to be done as scraping of the old varnish an...

Re: WW2 SD nearly finished

I changed the ignition points gap from 0.4mm to 0.25mm and timed the setting again to 22.5 dgr BTDC. Today it was the moment of truth, at the 2nd pull she was running very well, also at higher revs. She gives a good flow of cooling water through the tell tale hole where the cooling pipe meets the ex...

Re: How to fit a new cork for a fuel tap

Just forget the cork.
It will leak when it dries out.
I have the same fuel taps at my motorcycles.
Best way is to fit 4 or 5 suitable Viton O-rings.
They are fuel resistant and will slide over easily with some lubricant.
Good luck

Hello pizey,
No I am not a dentist, I presume you spotted the Ritter compressor. :P
I use this compressor to run my model steam engines.
Another hobby of mine, one of to many. :roll:

Seagull TC 102

I like you to show my Seagull TC 76805. She runs like new, I have used her this summer. She will propulse my 11ft boat in the future, when the boat is finished. The boat needs a little TLC. I now the brass tank needs a good coat of black paint and the correct transfers. The transfers are supplied by...
