laugh or cry
« on: September 28, 2012, 11:57:38 AM »


High fellow boaters,
This is my latest project,(am I mad) its a scratch built all metal boat, 33Inches long with an 8 inch beam, from about 1950? I think it's supposed to be a coaster of some description unless you know better, It is in a very poor state as you can see from the photo's, but I think it's basically sound, just needs rebuilding, the motor is a Bassett Lowke, made in Northampton, I don't know anything about it, I tried it on various battery's from 3 up to 12 volts and it ran quite smoothly, any information would be most welcome.
Should keep me busy through the winter, so any ideas would be gratefully received. Just found this picture from 1936 catalogue showing Motor and Prop-shaft and prop as fitted in this boat.
Thanks Colin.
