This is my recently acquired dinghy. It was built in 1969 and has been owned by one family since new.It is a homemade Pelin Nomad and is in excellent condition. Looking forward to running my collection of old outboards on it

The boat is really nice, all I've done is touch up some of the varnish. The trailer had a bit of an upgrade from the original 8" wheels with built in bearings. I found a set of period style ROH mags . The modern plastic mudguards look ok I think. The merc 9.8 that is in the picture is a reaaly low hours motor, however it has a power head from a later model because the original was totally coroded from not being flushed and poor storage. So far I have run 3 of my vintage mtors on the boat. The merc 9.8, 59 model johno 18 and 61 model evinrude 5 1/2. Going to try out my Westbend 18 next.

That is such a cute little boat Michael.
In case you are wondering, the 110 was built in 1969 too!

Hey Michael,
Have you tried the Westbend on your beaut boat as yet?

I have loaded this great little free App called "Speedometer" on to my iphone. It's fantastic when accurately comparing the performance of your outboards. It is also capable of a myriad of other functions including heads up display on your car windscreen!
Will display instant KPH or MPH and of course KTS, at the push of a single button. Huge easy to read display even in bright sunlight and rough seas!
