Old Marine Engines - Red Bay

"Early marine inboard engines are also known as one-lungers , make'n'break, or make and break engines. They could be two cycle or four cycle design, but were most commonly two cycle, and could be single or multi-cylinder. They were built in large factories such as Palmer Brothers, Lathrop, Gray, and Lozier, as well as small local machine shops, machining and assembling castings in limited numbers. " Posted by Picasa

Beautiful colour, very impressive. I have an engine in my boat that is of this type - as you know. If my photographs are half as nice as yours, I will be more than pleased.
