Very nice! That engine is a work of art.

Does your boat have a reverse gear? Or do you need to stop and start the engine in reverse? That would make for exiting maneuvering in marinas.

I’m curious what that engine weighs?
Also, how many hours can you run her before rebuild?

Beautiful engine!

Here's the David B, with a three cylinder engine of about the same vintage, heading upstream through Dodd Narrows:

Neat, but I am glad I don’t have to start mine like that.
