Re: Me and my Seagull

Very nice boat and also very nice Seagull!
I'm impressed with the chroming on the exhaust tube and drive tube - have you had them re-chromed or are they original?

Cheers

Seagull Serial Prefixes

Hi all After recently coming across one or two not-as-common Seagull serial prefixes I thought I might see if we could all attempt to compile some sort of record for the not-as-common/ strange prefixes you've found on Seagulls. Recently on eBay, I came across an SJPR which I personally haven't seen ...

Re: Removing gearbox screws/bolts? HELP!

Hi Emrys Equipment needed: - good fitting screwdriver - blowtorch/ heat source - wd40/ penetrating oil - adjustable spanner All you need to do is heat up the general area of the gearbox where the screws are to remove the end-cap. When you deem it to be hot enough, try unscrewing the screw (if it is ...

Re: Victa Jet - started today and it runs!

by Twinkles031 The only bit I am not 100% happy with at the moment is a small crack in the very top cover in front of the pull start. Will keep my eyes open for a replacement in the future but finding a mint one is going to be a big ask. One of my friends in Mandurah may possibly have one of those ...

Re: A hard to answer question

Hi all It's been a while since I've even had a look at this 102, with school and whatnot imposing on my usual workshop time. Since the last time TD959G5 has ran, the gearbox lube has congealed/solidified and needs to be cleaned out and replenished. On the weekend I managed to get the gearbox off and...

Re: Model suitability

Hi Tim

Here in Australia, I have seen a number of Seagulls that have been modified in that way, but the ones I've seen have all been 102 models.
Definitely a home-made job, Seagull never offered an extra-short-shaft model.

Have you had it running yet?

Cheers

Re: Model suitability

Hello Tim

From your seagull pics it looks like your motor had been 'shortened'!
You might have a perfect compromise with the motor and the boat as a result.

Re: Model suitability

Hi Tim Welcome to the forum! On my old 2.6m inflatable, I have used almost all my seagulls with no troubles. I have used my LLS (Century standard), my 102 (standard) and my 40+ (SJP). Being an Avon RIB, I can't foresee any possible woes you might have with your Silver Century as long as you're not t...

Someone's breaking a Marston...

Hi all You may recall I posted a link to a Marston transom bracket on eBay last weekend. Just came across this - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Seagull-Outboard-motor-petrol-Tank-/361682509033?hash=item5435f51ce9:g:yhMAAOSwMtxXrGaQ I wander if he will advertise the rest of the motor in pieces as well... ...

Marston Transom Bracket

Hi all

Just came across this as well.
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Seagull-Outbo ... SwHoFXrGdY

I thought that the bracket had a bit more depth if that makes sense...

Re: Early Australian Distributors.

Just as a side note, does anyone know when the Sachs Mac Wankel rotary outboards were made? I know they are from the same sort of period as those Japanese motors but not exactly sure if it was in fact before or after the Yanmar...

B, you've got a nice original one don't you?
