I think the twin is 10 hp
I dont think the hull is a Vinco
You have a Blaxland muffler and cone clutch
Depending on the distance between the center
of your prop shaft and the bottom of the hull,
possibly a 12x13 or 13x13 prop.
Vincos revved a lot more than Blaxlands.
I'll do a little digging and find some data
in a Vinco manual when I find it

Stephen, your Vinco engine develops 10hp at 850rpm.
The twins seem to have come on the market in the later 1950s and would have gone into the 60s at least. The bore and stroke is 3.5 inches and it weighs 230 pounds.
It is interesting to note that apart from the Vinco carby that yours has, an Alpha could be supplied for an extra 10 pounds, which sounds like a fair bit extra.

Good to see another Vinco Twin owner. Great 2 stroke, powerful motor and is well engineered. I have 2 twins one equipped with a Vinco carby and the other an Alpha.
I have a lot of information on Vinco which is too much to cover here so if you like give me a ring on 0409925988 will be only too pleased to discuss.

thank you,i only just got this a few days ago so havent had much of a chance to look to close yet. the engine has very good compresion and the maggy throws a good spark, the vinco carby is cromed brass, and very solid. seems a big engine as the hull is very lite in construction, very fine in the bow 16'x5'4"beam, id say she will go like cut snake!! there ist alot of aperturae i might get a 12" prop but thats all, the bloke i bought it off said the prop is still around so i might get it yet. is the vinco able to run in reverse? will give you a ring Bernie. and thanks again to all regards Steve Craig.
