What a great motor! I had a 5 hp Anzani once & thought all of my past had come back when I saw another (twin cylinder, though) at the Wartime Museum at Mallacoota recently (the day before the fire). The Seagull was a better motor but they both looked alike.

As an aside the "Seagull" was utilised by the Royal Navy. www.britishseagull.com/history.php

Thanks Possum,
Reading your article reminded me of the BIG difference between the Anzani & the Seagull - the exhaust! The Anzani was air cooled & located just below the pull-up/tilt handle (below the fuel tank) - I learnt once what not to grab!!!! Exhausts are HOT!

All the best Blueanlou in your sale. What HP is it?

I have found memories from my childhood of this motor also.Mainly of its sound at 6am on a still morning.
If you want to run the motor in a drum you need to take off the propeller as it will aerate the water and the water pump wont pick up water.I have a litre of thick gearbox oil to suit too.
Would like it just to look at !!!

I too have fond childhood memories of these little motors. Both my father and grandfather had one each to power their dingys. In Dads case it powered a bondwood 12 footer that he had built himself that we spent many happy hours in fishing together when I was a lad. They certainly were not fast but very reliable.
