Re: Anyone seen one of these fuel tanks before?

I saw it for sale somewhere recently , it was Seagull outboard fans on Facebook indeed . I was intrigued by the tank but not enough to bid ! I've messaged the guy to see if he still has note of the serial number as it has been sold now .

Re: Anyone seen one of these fuel tanks before?

Would it be possible to get pictures from underneath ? It would be interesting to see if it's a correct fit onto the head or if there are any signs of alterations . I thought it may have been a Britannia tank but they're different .

Re: Orkney dinghy

Hi Dave Thanks for the information . I don't think the boat was ever rigged for sailing . There is no sign of any provision for a mast or rudder and the family which owned it previously had only used oars or a Seagull ! I would say it wasn't really built for an outboard because of the rake in the tr...

Re: Reliability

Many fishing vessels and work boats prefer the old school diesels for their rugged simplicity and reliability and I think the same could be said for Seagull . Most folk who are handy with a spanner can keep one going . On the larger modern engines if the computer says no they just stop or at best go...

Re: Orkney dinghy

Thanks for your comments . I'm taking the boat and some outboards to a vintage rally this weekend so hoping someone can fill in the blanks . I know it's history back as far as 1966 .

Orkney dinghy

Just for fun , a picture of my 12 ft Orkney built clinker dinghy with 1960 '102' . The dinghy is older than the motor but I'm still trying to find out when and where it was built .

Re: Seagull Trial.

Do you need to adjust the trim a bit or is it just the way it looks in the picture ?

Re: Seagull Trial.

Ten baskets was ok with outboard but there wasn't enough room to row . I used an old 2 horse yam . I see them with the inflatable collars indeed which makes me think perhaps they need it for sailing . I downsized to a smaller boat so also a smaller tender . After ten years of sterling service I sold...
