Vivian Boat Engine


#91, R R #1, Deep Creek Road Enderby, British Columbia, Canada V0E 1V0

I am a member of the Vernon Collectors Club and my wife Rae is the librarian. She is the one who ordered the subscription to Gas Engine Magazine.

There are several in the club who collect engines, wrenches or tractors and enjoy the magazine, along with some of the senior members who just enjoy the stories.

These pictures show some of my projects over the years:

#1-Out of a boat but unknown. It has a blower for air cooling, whether original or added on later is not known. (Not restored.)

#2-A 194? Vivian boat engine built in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I mounted it on an old dock cart, put power to the wheels and drove it in one parade. Too rough riding with the steel wheels, but still a good show piece.
