RE: [bolger] hp, hull, etc.
- Generally speaking, my first impression that my 6 hp Seagull needs fuel is
when it simply quits, solving the 'engine off' issue. The tank is, I think,
designed to carry just enough fuel to last just past the point where you're
still wondering about capacity..
And regarding reliability, Seagulls are loud, smoky, leaky, rattling pieces
of pre-WWII technology; BUT... by the same token, they're so rat-simple that
it's easy work to put them right when something gets out of whack. Know
your engine, and have a source of parts (there's a fellow in Canada that's
HJ, that must've been one helluva day!

You want to shut the motor off before refueling, if you spill while it
is running it will catch fire, the residue from the fire extinguisher
you use to put the fire out will get in the fuel tank through the open
cap through which you were pouring the fuel when it caught fire. This
residue will make the engine quit just when a tug and barge wants to
share the small channel you were motoring down. I know all this for a fact.
