8hp Seagull

You might look at www.saving-old-seagulls.co.uk
It's a great site and you'll probably find all you need to know there.

No, it's for pushing large displacement hulled boats along.It'll be a bugger to start as it'll be too deep in the water.Seagulls really don't work well with the exhaust too deep.
