Yes, I think from reading their website it was filmed 2013 and 2014.

Here is another clip, I presume this is in the documentary dvd, (purists, please avert your eyes now!) Nice one! Go on, click the link, you won't be dissapointed.

Hybrid Twin Cylinder British Seagulls (one for the fraternity)

Pat there are 2 Seagulls on that trailer along with the little yellow boats, the 2 cylinder one & my Century with the twisted crankshaft, because the man with the starter rope Raoul Lealand accidentally dropped the back of the boat with the motor revving at 4k onto a hard beach, stopped it quite quick & twisted the needle roller crank.

That list for the firing squad, your name is on there Nudge!

Nothing wrong with fitting reed valves, as long as they're Seagull parts, wasn't the Seagull Sport in the Seagull price list circa 1993 & 4?

I took that out there to teach the Kiwis a lesson, but didn't allow for sabotage by one of them, they don't like not winning, not that they get a lot of practice!

This should be a link to another silly idea from Raoul the mad Kiwi, me testing the ski boat, it ran up on 3 water skis.

After that it got fitted with foils, & then got scrapped for being toooo dangerous!

I will ask to see if anyone has got any pics, I didn't take any, I was in it getting drowned, that's why I was wearing a survival suit.

These are the only pics I've been sent so far, look at the difference in hair colour, Guess the oldest pic, no prize.

All on Lake Taupo, middle pic is trying a Susuki DT9, no pics of it up & flying yet.

Came across this clip on SOS homepage.
Dear John

Many years ago I decided to make a short film publicly funded by the Queensland Government in Australia. It was based loosely on my relationship with my father and our old seagull outboard motor. We had looked at your site many times together and I always meant to send you a copy. Instead, I've now put it online and I'm sure you'll love to embed it on your website for your followers.
