Re: Seagull Heaven

As we are in bike mood, this is my Guzzi Galletto [= young cock] 192 c.c. born in 1954, that I thoroughly restored about ten years ago and currently use. https://i18.servimg.com/u/f18/19/18/37/80/th/gallet10.jpg https://i18.servimg.com/u/f18/19/18/37/80/th/img_7510.jpg

Re: Hi from Glenmallan!

Nice to hear from you again Stelios! How are you doing? How are the balcony Seagulls? I was in Scotland last summer as a tourist, in a company unfortunately not very boaty. I only managed to drag them to visit a Light House museum and the Falkirk wheel. I know from experience that it is difficult to...

Re: Knots versus mph/kph

In this Country Nautical Miles and Knots are used for any and every distance and/or speed at sea, and to me this is correct for the reasons said by Hugh. On inland waterways instead Kilometers are used. About mechanical measures, metrical system is unbeatable for the simplicity of reckoning. I am am...

Re: Its time for electric seagulls (E.Gulls)

Very well done! Why do you need gears to increase speed? Usually in all appliances the problem with electric motors is the high RPM and the need of reducing speed and gaining torque. You have two pairs of gears (one in the foot gear box), the second one undoing what the first one did. Perhaps anothe...

Re: Its time for electric seagulls (E.Gulls)

I prize Egull for practically making something. I also confess to envy a little the pleasure he got in designing and making his experiment and whish him the best result of his next tests. What is not shown in the post pictures is the big issue of the matter: BATTERY. Technology is slowly and steadil...

If this can be of any help, the Operating Instructions book that came with my 40 plus in 1963 in Italy is fourteenth edition, the BS address is Fleets Bridge Pool, Dorset and the number in the lower left corner is 6/62. I also have a Spares Book for CENTURY PLUS whith Clutch, CENTURY PLUS whithout C...

Re: and now for something completely different!

Jon, I perfectly understand and sympatize with the lack of room for all our "toys" and children's (and grandchildren's for me). And also the look. I am afraid it is hopeless, because as soon as you, anyhow, get more room, say a new garage, a larger courtyard or any, in an eye-blink it is f...

Re: and now for something completely different!

if we could go any faster

Why not start with a rigid hull, not inflatable, and then play with gear ratio and propeller?

Re: Too much stuff.

Wonderful!
I am also of the kind that never dumps anything but this overtakes me without possible comparison.

The problem is that when you need a part, may be you have it and you don't know.

Best wishes

Re: Seagull 102 S.N # 102 TC80928L

Ciao Eugenio,

Charles uk's question is very important.
You must use SAE 140 oil in the gearbox.

By the way, will you go to next year's Velalonga? Unfortunately I missed the last one.
Happy sailing (and motoring) with the Lightning,

Glad to hear that you are slowly improving.
Keep exercising and hoping.
