is the first one a seal ? and the second an Island special I think they where called and we know what the third Is

Response by tiggy_cat on the 21st Feb 2010
HI Peter,
Yes the 4 cylinder Is the Seal. Surprised to find that the castings and build Instructions are still currently available for these! The middle one Is a Channel Islands Special. Don't know much about these as I 've never heard of anyone actually using one. They were available (like the Gannet) as an aero engine. Hate to think about the size of plane this would need. Third photo , as you say, needs no Introduction

Your'e boat looks good. regards to your Duseldorf, check out the boat build blogs as my own dusseldorf Is featured there and may help you somewhat. If you do need any assistance, get back to me at any stage of the build as I may have pictures/data, Info that may make It easier or add more detail to the basic Item.

Aerokits boat? with Merco 61 resto project - Posted: 9 years ago by Merco61
Can anyone tell me what boat this Is?
I think Its a modified Aerokits fire boat or Sea queen,
The deck Is different because It steps down, the cabin looks to be modified, the hull Is all fibre glass with wooden bulkheads.
Nice 10cc Merco engine.
Will upload more recent pics as the pics are from about 18 months ago, I've since started re building the boat to sail then In future sell.

Response by dbninja on the 15th Jan 2010
Not a modified aerokits anything...
all Aerokits kits were traditional plwood on frame construction, no aerokits cabin cruiser, fire boat, mtb had a glass fibre hull

don't recognise It meself.. don't know what It Is.. just what It Isn't!

Response by Merco61 on the 27th Feb 2010
About the fibre glass hull It looks to be ply with a thin coating of fibre glass.
It's roughly 34" long.
The guy who the boat used to belong to had a couple of aerokits boats as well as this one, he had a sea queen and another boat but I cant remember the model name.
from looking at other boats the only boat I can really compare It with Is the sea queen.
I will be uploading the boat with or without the engine on ebay In the next couple of months, I have two merco 61 marine engines that will be on ebay soon.

Dunlin Underhill designed Police Launch - Posted: 9 years ago by ianed57
This Is the model seen In the video of Dunlin but now electric powered. Gave her a repaint which Involved stripping right back to bare wood as the original finish was crazed due to a reaction. Finall got fed up with It and bit the bullet.
