Okay so it's not a seagull but a good clip showing pontoon/barge building by the Americans to cross the river Rhine, go to 4.21 in to the clip for the initial glimpse of the outboards and for those of an impatient disposition 4.45 in to the clip gives a better shot with close up of the outboards. So the usual question now what make/hp etc. are the outboards in the clip please?

Also on a side note, the YouTube clips links no longer seem to be working, not sure if it's a problem with sos site or perhaps youtube is blocking the links in someway, I checked my previous postings of Youtube clips and they are not showing up either just a lot of blank space where the clip used to be, see link viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4711

Pat,

That is a Johnson outboard. Probably a 22hp POLR-15 or similar.

A member brought one along to an old outboard meet we had in May last year - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FeIj16ItRt8&t=13s

Cheers

Outboards make their first appearance around 10 minutes and 20 seconds in to the clip, shame they don't show how they got the outboards on to the "transom", I'd say it required some effort anyway, lets just say they look a little less manageable than a seagull!

Probably a Sturmboot motor.

Thanks Keith.P.

Here is a another one taken from the crossing of the Seine at Vernon. A rather sad story behind this picture, I guess it shows the reality of what the soldiers were facing in to as they set off into the unknown. Scroll down to the bottom of page 1 to see page 2 and description of photograph on page 2. See link below.
