Hello and welcome. Any 15-20hp modern-day four stroke should be fine. That would get you up on the plane and ribbing with the best of us. By the way, hang on to that Seagull; they're collectors' items nowadays.

Hi,

Yeah, you'll be ok with a bigger lump on that. Check the plate- from memory the max HP varies with the length on those. (like if you get the 4.5m one it's something like 35 or 40Hp which will rip the back off the Small one - I don't have the useful buit of paper to hand at the mo, but someone will no doubt be along soon.....)


If it's the smoke that puts you off the Seagull, don't worry - they all do that, it's a "feature" of the 10:1 mix!

Hi Dan
My Avon was almost identical to yours,
Maybe slightly younger. Think it was a Avon Sportboat 340. With an inflatable keel.

Since selling it I have regreted it so much, We used to have 3 of us in it down in Swansea bay. Fun, Fun. Fun !
