My brother in law who lives in Denmark bought an old wooden 23ft sail boat last year it has a small in board two stroke engine. It has not run since he bought the boat, it is a Boreas type 2LR72 8-10HP does any one have any information?

I have one installed in my open 16' sejl-jølle (sailing 'jolly-boat'). I have used months trying to make it reliable. The work included having new rings made specially, planing the head and after cleaning 30 years of rust out of the block due to raw-water cooling, I finally gave up on making the exhaust manifold water tight and machined, formed and welded a new one from stainless. This summer I was treated to unpleasant situations twice due to weak sparks from the Swedish SEM magnito which is just about to give up and will have to be re-wound and re-magnetized this winter. I've got so many hours in it now that I can't give up on it, but it's cast iron block and head are so soft now that you can scrape metal off with a screw driver if you are so inclined. The two cylinder, two stroke engine was manufactured up to the 60's on the island of Fyn (Funen) but parts and old examples are almost completely extinct. It was usold in small sailboats in Denmark until the end of production. Some made it to Germany, but there are a few still languishing in old boats in Denmark. I live in the US now, and I'm pretty sure mine is the only example over here. If he wants to get rid of it, let me know. I need the parts.

Oh, I forgot to add, you can tell your brother he is welcome to contact me about the engine if he has some questions about it. I also speak and write Danish. jmmann@sbcglobal.net
