Very nice find at a flea market  :)

You´ve just bagged yourself a Wilesco D52 Marine Engine, well done!

What is it mounted on there, looks like an old suitcase...wonder if someone escaped Alcatraz using this "boat"  ;)

Thanks for the info. I’d never heard of a d52. I figured it was a few Wilesco pieces cobbled together. Paid $150 Cdn for it. It’s mounted on a little metal stand (that does, admittedly, look like a suitcase in the photo).
