Small model SeaBee - they made several models up to 5HP. Think -but not certain - some used J.A.P engines.

Believe these were also made by Auto Products (see other email).

Regret I don't know the model numbers for SeaBees - there was an 80cc Seabee 3. The original manufacturer was Austin Burrell Ltd. in Leicester.

I did once try to find out about Auto Products - think their address was Bayton Road, Exhall, Coventry - but drew a blank. There is/was a company in Coventry called Auto Products, whose activities seemed to be totally divorced from outboard engines.
