Not made anymore but apparently spares are available. They use a selva outboard bottom end.

Mariner used to do a petrol commerical outboard that would run on Kero once the engine was hot, think it was a 70 hp 3 cly engine.

Also been looking into this problem but I can't find a cheap solution. However the first engineering company that puts a small diesel engine on a leg at a sensible price could be onto a good thing, perhaps Hightower could knock one up in his lunchtime for us to try.

80 kg for the Ruggerini is too much and you could carry a small petrol outboard and a lot of fuel for that weight.

Its not just the weight... 4 seats and an inboard don't leave a lot of room for petrol!!. I've been away from boats a good while, and I'm amazed at the lack of progress in thi area. Surely it should be possible to produce a cheap light engine given the recent advances in diesel technology!

I could be way of the mark but I thought I'd mention it anyway. I think its made by a Jap crowd called Zongshen.

It seems a lot of grief to go through to me. Get a small outboard and 10 litres of fuel (petrol)

When I worked for a survey company we used to use the yanmar OB's, they were okay but very heavy for the HP, also not the quietest of units.
They used to put single 27 or 36 on the back of 6m inflatables and occationally doubles on an 8m or the best I saw was twin 36 on a 5.4 searider with the controls on top of the console!!!!!!
They were all getting sold off as a job lot to an american university who wanted a seismic servey ship and they came with it!
Most had sat for 3-4 years in stores and on the backs ofships for 5 odd years prior to that.

Not Japanese but Chinese, EP Barrus sell their motorcyles!!

However... I've got one!! ... Someone had to

Following invaluable help from Peters and May ( recommended by Zippy )
who got it from Florida, and Danny SLucher of Morgan Equipment who handled the sale despite being evacuated because of 2 hurricanes, I am now the proud owner of a Zongshen BDE6 Diesel Outboard.


My current knowledge

It weighs 132lbs - feels heavier.

It's 300cc's

It's air cooled diesel

It's got electric start

The manual's nearly english

The duty was 19% not 2.7% as quoted initially by C&E

I need something substantial to hang it off !!


I hope to try it out on a rescue boat for the local S.C. as the RIb's winterised
(that's my excuse).

Progress (and hopefully some photo's ) soon

wish me luck!! ( I think I may need it)

Ian

(first impression is russian rockets (Soyuz??) vs Apollo i.e built like a brick s**thouse!!
