Engines

If you look on apolloduck theres a nice one in Ireland.

They seem to usually have 60hp but I have seen 70 on one.

If you email Avon they will send you the full spec, there are two models on has a deeper v hull and needs a long shaft engine.

I want a 4.7 hull but the dont seem to ever come up.

Chris

Thanks Chris.
well a 4.7 has come near me. Just rang the guy but he says he's been running a 85HP engine on it and the tubes are coming away from the transom. Was very interested until I hear that. Too much work for me to do.
Here's the link

Yeah I thought so. That wouldn't leave me to much money left to get an engine with. The word that I'm trying to find rhymes with clucking bell!

But it may not need retubed - could just need glued back together/tidied up?

Looking at the ebay photos the tubes look quite tidy and as Polwart said getting them re attached is probably not going to set you back more than a couple of hundred and I imagine you will get the boat for a good price because if this.

Might be worth a closer look. Not sure about the engine cant tell what it is from the pic. I am sure someone on here could tll you more about it.

i would think Eurocraft are the closest to you, but Henshaws, or Paul Tilley would also be able to put it back together if it is in reasonable condition.
