Hello

Has anyone ever seen an Anzani Pilot with full cowling and recoil start . I will post pics at weekend but wondered if anyone had heard of such a thing ?

No, never seen a Pilot with a recoil starter, it's most probably a SeaBee or something, is it blue?

Thanks for the pics ,Its very similar to that . The lower cowl and tiller are the same , top cowl slightly different . Its definitely an Anzani pilot underneath it all and its a proper made cowl . I searched the web but no pics . Is the one in the pictures called Seamaid ?

Cheers

Anzani Seamaid, 3 B.H.P, 4500 revs, 23" & 28" long, 32 lbs, grp cover & recoil, 16:1 fuel mix.
Not certain when they first appeared 58 to 60, finished 1964.
Make it idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot.

Thanks for the info . There seems to be very little about Anzani on the internet , I have a bit of a soft spot for them , first outboard I ever owned in late 80s was a 1950s Super Single 50 which I sadly sold years later .

Thanks for that , almost identical , your cowling slightly different and mine has been painted badly ! Same recoil as my Ocean 4 . I'm wondering if this model Anzani is quite uncommon ?

The earlier comment about Anzani outboards and info on the web is very true, I’ve searched for hours and found very little. We are lucky on SOS to have such great info about seagulls!
