Evinrude Yachtwin Info. needed!

Hi all, I recently bought a restoration project Dolphin 19. I came with a little Evinrude Yachtwin (hopelessly small except for a stand-by!) but I have decided to restore it. I think the engine is around mid- 1960s, they made different horsepowers I believe and I am not sure what mine is (it may be ...

Re: york rally

Just to add my two penny worth! I was one of the 3 CMBA members with my Albatross, who appear to have upset the slipway owners - at no time did any of us hold up anyone else - my wife was present on shore during all 3 launches and my recovery and she agrees. When I was ready to recover my boat a cha...

Nice piece of film!

BUT can anyone identify the boats?

I think the small ones are the FMDs (fast motor dinghies) and the larger one looks very Hubert Scott-Paine (BPBC)

Dolphin 19 Project For Sale

I recently bought this boat as a restoration project, unfortunately health issues have meant that I cannot go ahead, so it has to go! The hull of the boat is in excellent condition and the (winched and braked) trailer is very good and just needs a little cosmetic work. The decks of the boat, having ...

Thanks for all your helpful comments!

I was thinking that a 50Hp Evinrude e-tec would be a good choice?

Advice needed on outboard power!

Hi all, I've just purchased a Dolphin 19 for restoration, it has been in a shed for 30 years so it is structurally quite sound. My problem is that I have always had a pathological hatred of outboard motors so know very little about them! Are outboards power output expressed in different Horsepower t...

Classic looking GPS Speedometer

I cam across this clever item on Ebay, it looks good and is a very good price, the same company does matching rev-counters, fuel gauges etc. and I think they have a distinctly "classic look"
