Tony Owen, the Cow Bay expert on British Seagull outboard motors, had a visit from fellow expert and author Don Meyer last week.

Tony writes: “Had a neat visitor to the shop today. Don Meyer the fellow that wrote the book called the Classic British Seagull, delivered by hand another supply of his book to us at the Cowichan Bay Maritime Centre. Rather than putting them in the post he brought them up by car from Victoria…great guy and I have found a lot of super useful information in his book…so just had to have a pic with him.”

Tony loves the Seagull’s simplicity and rugged reliability, and considers them the ultimate in “recycling”. The Centre has a good supply of parts to keep these old motors running indefinately, so if you have one that needs a little TLC then talk to Tony!
