- John, any of those old engines your getting a Palmer Baby Husky or equivilent?
I've got the Victor Slocum plans and would love to build her around a true old marine
inboard as per Atkins specs.
By the way, thanks for the booth at PT and the new catalog, its a real improvment.

- I don't know how this one slipped by me, I just noticed it when I went
looking for a recent email I'd accidentally marked as "read"...
No, I don't have a Baby Husky (BH), but I do have a Palmer PW-27. It's a
bit smaller and lighter than a BH, has 27 cu. in. to the BH's 25 and puts
out 8 hp. at a screaming 2,800 rpm, compared to the BH's 6 hp. at 2,500
rpm. The earliest mention I've seen of a PW-27 in the Atkin plans is about
1952, but I'm sure they're older, and they made them until the early
1970s. A PW-27 would be a good engine for a Victor Slocum and they seem to
be easier to find than BHs. The also use Wisconsin internal parts (PW
stands for Palmer Wisconsin) that are relatively easy to find. But I won't
sell you mine. <g>
