Definitely a Featherweight, 1-2hp

Bear in mind that the engine could be a ‘bitsa,’ assembled from several different models. Does it have a Bing carb – square metal plate over the air intake, instead of the round plastic hole?

July 1974 by the way - a vintage year!

Just remember HP is not the only thing to go by though. Mate had a Warrior fishing boat with a Yam 5hp aux - wouldn't move him against the tide. He tried out his father's old Seagul and it was far better even though it was of a lower HP rating.

Seagulls are actually ideal as an auxiliary though-they were designed to move quite large displacement hulls.

What on earth are you doing up at this godawful time Codders?

I believe seagulls can live to around 45 years.

Dad has an old Seagull and I can remember it being an old Seagull when I was very young i.e. probably 28 years ago.... so it may well be 40+?

The boat blew away about 10 years ago so it doesn't get much use these days
