I received the following note(s) and photo from Mollie Cliffe. Great looking boat!

Quote:

We built one skiff-putt for a fellow a few years ago. He thought it was great. I got to take it out on it's maiden (testing) voyage. It is really weird when you don't know if you are going to start in "forward" or "reverse". I just made sure I was away from the dock when I started!

We put a St. Lawrence engine from Brockville, Ontario in our skiff-putt as the fellow who bought it was a shareholder in the St. Lawrence Engine Co. and he wanted one of those.

My hubby considered if he made another one he might put a YanMar diesel in it...a smaller engine....something for himself.

Sure you can post the picture on your site. Charlie Cliffe at Wilstead Woodcraft (our little cottage industry) makes them. I help wherever I can. People can reach me here at the email site ccliffe@kingston.net.

I will have to show you some inside and rudder pictures of ours. The fairly long shaft had a steady bearing half way between the motor and the stern. We have pictures of the engine too. I have to scan them first.

We have just finished restoring a 17' St. Lawrence skiff that was in worse shape than yours....it had holes in the bottom of it!

With a St Lawrence in a boat like that it sure must shake a lot. Looks as if the prop has a high pitch ( 18?) to keep the engine loaded down well.
Nice rudder too.

Does anyone out there have advice on installing an engine in a vintage St. Lawrence skiff?
