Seagull Outboard

Bought this British Seagull Model 40 Featherweight (2-3HP per factory) with an Avon dinghy. I have another motor so if there's anyone out there with a penchant for Seagulls and great British engineering , here's a chance to experience it.

I jest about the engineering part, as primitive as they are, they seem to run forever and have developed a bit of a cult following. This one had been sitting for nigh on thirty years and after a clean, a new plug, the viton 'O' ring full tap fix and fresh gas it started right up. Runs well and starts easily, seems to have good compression though it does need a new spark plug cap. These and many other spares are still available online. The engine is clean with a little corrosion on the leg, the cooling system is clear and it pumps a good stream through the cooling outlet. This one does have a few unusual extras: the original Seagull carry bag, tools, manual, factory tiller extension and a couple of spares.

I have taken a video of it running:

Asking $295 OBO. Located in NM USA. For shipping purposes it weighs about 45 lbs and would be approximately 40x14x15 inches packed.
