I am restoring a 30 ft 1935 cruiser built in victoria british columbia to original condition. THE ORIGINAL REGISTRATION states the original engine was gasolne and 87bhp. I need help in determining what the original power might have been or at least a reasonable replacement of the right vintage.

Do you know the name of the builder? If you know the launching date you could go back to the newspapers around that time and see if there was a mention of the boat or the launching. The engine was sometimes specified. Check with BC Archives in case there are business records from the builder. I tried to contact you about another option, but you have no email and there are no private messages on this site.
