    Check Classic Motorcycle magazines, especially
    British ones. I remember a Co. Ralph Allen in
    the UK specialised in SS brit fasteners.

      What do you need thistle? (diameter x length x quantity)

      Those pesky seagull motors falling apart due to corroded fasteners???

        i just received another 2 poor old engines with unsalvagable fasteners,and since i already have 2 more to fix i dont think im going to go and make any of those bolts but would rather buy .

        these are as a result of the recent hurricane ,i also have 5 woodworking machines that spent a while rolling under 14 feet of surf so im busy fixing things .

        i will have to pull some bolts and measure them , of the top of my head 5/16 and 1/4 diameter though

              I'll take the one on the right. Looks just perfect for my Grumman 18' canoe. Need a prop though.

                the one on the right is going to be a stock race engine .

                going to put a differant prop on it to cheat alittle.

                is that an aluminium canoe .my family have a grumman canoe thing must be from the 1950s and still going .they had a seagull on it at one point years ago.

                  Jeez! I was only jokin' about those Seagulls!!! didn't realise I was going to hit bulls eye.

                  I've just been given a shed load of BSW/BSF fasteners from a fastener supply company that has 're-aligned' their stock (in other words they will only 'do' metric crap from now on!!). Quite a few of the fasteners are stainless - so let me know when you come up with the sizes and quantities.

                    that motor cycle engine works on the same priciple as the seagull, if you get it started the manufacturer bears no responsibility for stopping it ,no battery,electrical system ect.

                    still have not pulled those bolts yet ragarsed, working on it though.

                      Thistle,

                      Yep, it's a 18' Grumman lightweight made from .032 aircraft aluminum. Only weighs 67lbs and is the fastest canoe on the water. I have a full sail rig with jib and mainsail, storm jib, leeboard and rudder. The entire sail rig weighs about 17lbs and the mast and boom stow under the thwarts completely out of the way. My design. Sewed the mainsail myself. I have sailed 25 miles in a day without lifting a paddle and it will point up about 45 degrees course made good into the wind.

                        the only thing i can say is that they knew how to make those canoes.
                        i would like to get my paws on it and polish the thing .

                        i understand the manufacture of the aluminium canoes boats is interesting- i have not ever seen it and could be wrong-but
                        understand they take a big sheet of aluminium and pull on it hydraulically until the point when it is almost going destruct then bring up the form at the same time releasing the pulland voila half a hull

                        is this true?

                          Thistle,

                          It IS polished to a mirror finish, by me.

                          The hull halves are compound curved so they must be stamped somehow.

                            Hey Evan,

                            Looks like its needs another polish! All I can see is grass growing on it!!!!!

                            Thistle: Same designer was (ir)responsible for both the Villiers and the Seagull motors!

                            After the demise of the Norton Villiers Triumph Motorcycle group Bert Hopwood indulged in the Seagull business again. He finished up patenting a stepped piston / supercharged 2 stroke that was powerful in its day.

                              Yeah, it's a stealth canoe. At some angles in the water you can't really see it.
