Gas distillate engine

| August 2006

We are interested in any information regarding a 1909 gas distillate engine. It was the power plant for our 1909 yacht, Lotus. She is 92 feet 105 tons and the original engine was quite large, I think 90 HP. She was built by Lee & Brinton, naval architects new to Seattle at that time with offices in the original Coleman Ferry building.
