Looks as though it might still be "sea worthy", so have you had it out on the pond for a lap or three yet?

Add it to that list of things I need to do  :D  :D

I always wanted the stationary GEM, but when Edward offered this one, I thought, even better!

Here’s a google image of the stationary

Day 111: After today’s maybe Ryder sale, I dug this one out for some pictures. It will require a careful cleaning as it has very nice original paint/lining. And thanks to @TEC we now know not to call it a Buckman!  :D

That's not a Buckmann? I've got one just like it, cork safety valve too.
So what do we call them? That picture of the Ryder Large Horizontal looks
like it but the description says its cylinder action is double and valve
action is slide. I thought these are oscillating cylinders. Correct me.

That's a mistake on my website.  It's an oscillating cylinder engine, designed by Ryder.  I'll make the correction as soon as my hosting company gets the website back on line. I had to convert paper records to an online database, so a few typo's were inevitable.  Part one of the article explains about Ryder.  When it's ready, part two will cover Buckman.

It looks like a frail flower, just in time for spring.
