Re: Seagull Race Lerryn 2017

Ah that's our very own River Fowey guard ship - owned and operated by a retired cop who is our Marine Special Constable. His boat is MCA certificated and fitted with blue lights for use as a police boat. He has patrolled this coast for several years including joint patrols with other Agencies. A gre...

Re: Seagull Race Lerryn 2017

I have put 41 photos of the 2017 Lerryn Race on Facebook if anyone knows a young person who can work that thingy.
Site is Golant Boat Owners Association -Boatwatch.

Re: Seagull Race Lerryn 2017

Perfect way to spend some time...... its about 170 miles from Salisbury - so allow three and a half hours min. Lots of photo ops at registration, and (silent) Racing Start. There are fine walks along the river banks where you can watch the race.

Re: Seagull Race Lerryn 2017

Theme for Lerryn this year is "Oh I do like to be beside the sea side". Registration at 1300 hrs. Start time is 1400 hrs, finish 1530hrs or as long as it takes........... HW is only a 4.9m at 1453 hrs so a bit low for boats coming up from Fowey or down from Losty but hope to raft up with f...

Re: Protective coating

The Seagull manual recommended wiping the engine over with an oily rag after use to preserve the finish but it also stated that an alternative was to paint the complete engine (excluding the silencer) with spar varnish before first use. That may be what is on the handsome engine in the photo. I neve...

Re: Weedless or Hydrofan

Having tried the semi weedless curved blade props on both my 40 Featherweight and Silver Century Plus in direct comparisons, I have gone back to original Hydrofans. The thrust, particularly at low revs in my experience (on my boats anyway) is definitely better with the original Hydrofan and I think ...

Re: Loss of power once warm?

Ta Jon, yes I think a dismantling is due. Jets have been cleaned, timing fine, filters etc so must set to with bigger spanners..... :roll:

Loss of power once warm?

One of my Silver Century Plus birds hit a floating timber at full speed - memo to self - hire a more competent pilot next trip...... The awesome power available broke the drive spring and the beast raced without drive before I could tame her. Since then she will start on first pull and run perfectly...

Re: Century score

There are 60 moorings off Golant and plenty more deep water ones down at Wiseman's Reach. Without an outboard you won't get far rowing when the tie is agin. Great place for the gig rowers however - particularly big strong crews...... http://i677.photobucket.com/albums/vv137/NikonFM3/FG2_zpsj9bhftsb....
