Makes my boat trolley look pretty pathetic in comparison.

This is a model my brother-in-law from Bundaberg built in the late 60s or early 70s. The main feature of this model is its engine, a 25cc 4 stroke, petrol fuelled engine designed and built completely from scratch by said b-i-l. From memory the model was around 48 inches long. The photo was taken on a farm dam near Bundaberg, by me, in 1977.

This looks very much like a "beachcomber" Designed by a chap called S.G Pickering, also from the 60s or 70s
