I bought and old seagull for use on a tender - 54yr old engine £40 on ebay. Started first time and not let me down over the last 12 months. Courier charge is about £25. they're worth a look.

This isn't a rouse to use a seagull as a winged rudder is it?

Ancient Suzuki 2  (£30 6 years ago) pushes ours along fine if you can find one. Good luck

Take care with a Seagull on a Mirror!  You have to use the smallest model and you need to be able to keep the exhaust just below the water surface which in a light Mirror is difficult! If you raise the engine too high on the mount then its unstable so don't forget the landyard.  Even though the hp rating of the smaller Seagulls is round 2 or 3 hp the fantastic torque means it really pushes the boat through the waves and with the flat bow you will put a lot of stain on the boat.  They are terrific KISS motors though and I am sad they are no longer made and are regarded by some  as being filthy.

Anyone inyerested in a seagull (and I am not selling mine even though I sold the Mirror) will benefit from a look at the web site
