Not me that's more of Raoul's work.

Don't ever mention me in the same breath as anything Kiwi, or I'll be clouting you with my gauntlet & meeting you at dawn!

To defend whatever honour I have left.

So it's not true that your secret skunk works team working on the worlds first "Deltic" Seagull engine to crush everything in your wake.

The photographs are 'no longer available'.
Are they of the boxer configured engine I've heard of, and if so, is it possible they can be reposted?

Pinger these are the only pics I can find, this is the twin on a hover boat, this is the work of the mad professor at his worst!

Sorry it's not a boxer but just a "side by side" like an Anzani sport twin.

The "mad Prof" stole the hull design from the Death Star!

Note the electric fence to prevent escape attempts!

Thanks Charles.
Presumably, at least one of the bushes in each engine converted to rolling element bearings - to counter the pull of the chain.
PS.
My plans are still so far up in the air I might end up with an aeroplane engine....

Quite a secure containment area, I'll see if I can get a picture of one of the armed guards, this place is the New Zealand equivalent of America's skunk works!
