Probably the most interesting of the Sea Fury motors is this inboard/outboard design. They came two ways, single and twin-cylinder. You would cut a slit in the bottom of your boat and the motor would stay in the boat and the outdrive would be on the bottom of the boat. The outdrive could rotate 360°. Allyn made a neat looking boat with this motor installed called the Allyncraft. This is a pretty rare motor.

The model engine is on loan from Daniel “Buzz” Brunkow. Mr. Brunkow has a large engine collection and is also a builder of engines and fine wooden models. Several unusual pieces from his collection are currently on display at the Miniature Engineering Craftsmanship Museum in Carlsbad, CA. Mr. Brunkow has also contributed a model wooden Cushman scooter and Chris-Craft Cobra for display.
