The St Lawrence Engine Company began manufacturing two-cycle marine engines in 1905, a business that continued for 70 years at a factory next to the St Lawrence River in Brockville Ontario. A large number St Lawrence Engines have been lovingly restored and in the present day many are used to power small boats.

All interested boaters, historians, and old marine engine enthusiasts are invited to attend a St Lawrence Engine Company presentation by Don Buffett on February 20 2007 at the Brockville Museum starting at 10 AM and continuing until noon.

Don, a life long resident of Brockville, is a St Lawrence historian and collector. He was personally associated with the Company during the 1960’s and today maintains contact with several St Lawrence employees from the 1940’s.

February 20 promises to be a unique opportunity to learn about a Company that after 102 years continues to provide pleasure to countless antique marine engine enthusiasts.

Please contact Brockville Museum if you plan on attending or for more information.

I attended the presentation at Brockville and there wasn't any mention of outboard engines being made. I have since heard from a friend that he saw it noted in a book, but couldn't get a very good picture of it, other than it looked a lot like an early Evinrude. Is it possible that you could add some photos here, showing some of the identifying features that make it a St. Lawrence. I'd like to be able to recognize one if I come across it in my travels.
Thanks.

A quick search of Peter Hunn's antique ouboard motor book does not mention any outboards of that name, If they exist they would be very rare

BJ,

I thought you were going to get rid of your outboards. By the way, I could use another Gopher for my collection.

I have a St.Lawrence Single Cylinder engine which I believe is 3 H.P. It does not have a Serial number. It has a round tag only and all it says is St.Lawrence Engine Company, Brockville Canada. Can anyone identify the year of production. The carb is solid brass and does not have any markings what so ever.

Terry - good to hear from you. Current thinking would suggest that your St.Lawrence is in the c.1905-1909 range. No records have surfaced yet to confirm engine dates.

Based on what I have seen, I believe that the small rectangle name tag came before the round tag in that era. That might put your engine in the 1907-1909 range.

Any way you look at it, it is a great example of a 100 year old Canadian engine.
