With the exception of the tankless unit, they all seem to be from the same period. All appear to have the double transom clamp assembly placing them amongst the most recent models.

The very left hand one looks like a Mk2 bottom half with a Mk3 power head & transom clamp.

Mk 1 & 2 had a single transom screw & a tubular style bottom end, I think the Mk1 had a bronze lower unit.

Mk4 had a tiller arm that looked like a capital letter P & not the O on the earlier ones.

The only Seamaid I've ever seen was Ha's.

Far left has the single clamp , hard to see in this pic , it also has smooth domed cylinder head . Second left has bayonet tank cap , all others screw cap .I have the P tiller for black and white one but not sure if they belong together , sad one on far right has steel transom bracket . I would like to see a pic of mk1 , I had assumed the single clamp ones I have were mk1 . I will look out the Sea Maid but its not so pretty as the one above ! I have found the original post of what I think is a sea maid 15/03/18

How about a "Tennis Racket" tiller.

Other than that no idea.............

To answer a Q or 2.........

Yes that is Blue asbestos.

Yes that is a stainless exhaust tube.

Stainless looks really cool but downside sounds like shit. Just saying.

Cheers

I suspect the tiller forming the P handle was an accessory. Have seen too many now to think they were all home made additions.

I believe the P tiller and bayonet fuel cap were introduced in the early 70s . Picture is of the tiller I was given ,

Thanks for sharing. Not at all what I was expecting.

The one I was referring to is a simple tiller addition to the standard grab rail, similar to collector Inspectors Tennis Racket but as a separate piece.

I see there is an Anzani Pilot cyclinder on Ebay at the moment, if anybody is after one? Global postage too.
