    British Seagull Motors dating to 1938 , maybe 1931:  

"They were manufactured without basic change through the 70's. Originally, they were built to be used by people in what was left of the old British Empire who had little knowledge of engines and required something reliable. Legend goes that the British Navy ordered 10,000 of them for D-Day. Can't imagine what they were used for unless they were pushing barges. At any rate a lot of them went to the bottom. French fishermen picked some of them up and they are supposedly still running today. I do know that a good dunking in salt water will not kill a Seagull. They say that three days on the bottom will not hurt a Seagull anymore than a flounder. They run on a very rich oil mixture and have bronze bushings. Notice the 11 inch propeller with 5 blades - also the large 4:1 ratio lower unit. The whole thing is like a truck running in 1st gear. All push, no speed. Ideal for a displacement hull sailboat . They became very popular in the 50's through the 70's with the sailboat guys. You don't see them anymore. They are an environmental nightmare. They are oily, smokey and noisy. I have two of these - one through the help of Jay K2QNU, who knew where there was one for sale. I have had to make some parts myself, but now a firm in England has bought the name and, although they don't have a factory themselves, they manage to get parts manufactured and keep up a parts inventory. They have an importer here in the U.S. Seems there are other collectors. My motors do not just lay around. I try to use them as much as possible. They could probably benefit from more hard work."
