About 5 years ago I acquired a 5 hp Kahlenberg and after making a igniter thanks to Dave Deardorf I was able to get it running. I was told that Kahlenberg had all the build records and after talking to the sales manager I got information it was shipped to a E T Seglem on April 10 1913. I thought it would be cool to see if I could locate anyone with E t's last name. The first blind call got me E Ts great great grandson! after week or so I got the enclosed picture of Grandpa's boat.There is some talk of Peter Seglem coming down to the house this summer to see it running.

Great story Dick. To find an anonymous engine and have this much history is unbelievable. I know people with family owned engines that have less info.
