Oh, is that a picture of my future, if I'm not cured?

Now that's a collection.

It must be because your on an island, Jersey an island, Australia an island, makes sense.

Rene,

What a collection!
I now know when I asked you for details of any early 40 series (F,FV,FVP,LM,LS) that you have, it wasn't a simple quick matter of going to look at a few.
Is it just the two sheds that you have? I am almost afraid of the answer!
Well done for rescuing them.

Wow, seagull fetish or what. 8)

I was heading that way rapidly at one point, over 20 outboards in a single garage, including a huge Archimedes and nearly as big Unitwin. So after a large clear out, and 2 motorcycles, just a SD, FV, FPC now plus others in the shed waiting for me to look at. I've decided to go down the route of a small and interesting collection, so will only be buying in a narrow field from now on.

It all started with a classified "wanted" Ad for a Seagull/spares so that I could repair a couple of seized motors I picked up at a sale. Years later, Jersey being a small place, I still come home to find someone has left a motor on my doorstep.
I keep my nice motors in my main garage with several around the house ( I have to give the wife a foot massage per week to keep her happy) just nice to see them every day and a good talking point.

The reality is that most are either WSPCL's, FP's or 102's, every now and again something special comes along, not that often though but you have to take the rough with the smooth, I used to get them running as I got them but that got out of hand and at least they are under cover, I keep a register of them so I know what I have but not always sure where they are :oops:

To date, there's 173 of them but it's hard to say "no" as you never know what might turn up.
