A NEW WATERMOTA.

14 EMS. WALTER FAIR & Co. have long been famous

for producing one of the world’s most reliable outboard engines. Only on one occasion has any other make of motor been used for long distance open sea trips from England to the Continent ; and that occasion was the only one on which any serious mechanical trouble was encountered. An entirely new model is now announced by this old established concern. This is to be known as the ” Silver Queen ” and is

intended for use, primarily, for speed dinghy work.

The new motor has a larger diameter crankshaft and a flywheel magneto. The top and bottom of the crankshaft is supported in roller and ball bearings respectively and the usual Watermota features are retained.

The full 11 horse power is developed at about 3,750 r.p.m., and the total weight is about 70 lbs. Thus it is the lightest engine of its power in the world. The price is the same as last year’s

“Speed Eleven” model, namely 250.

One of these motors is being used on the forthcoming speed dinghy run to Belgrade, and we have recently had the opportunity to test this interesting motor. The maximum speed is about 10% above the “Speed Eleven” model while the acceleration is truly remarkable. A new feature is interesting. This is the “stator plate control,” a means whereby the spark can be retarded at the same time retaining its intensity. The result is truly remarkable.
