Outboard Motor Model 3
Pre 1961 "Sea Bee" Vintage Outboard Motor Model 3 , "Sea Bee" outboards were produced by Austin Burrell Ltd of Abbey Park Road, Leicester. Production started in 1957 with 3 basic models, The Minor, a ¾ - 1 ½ hp outboard, powered by a 34cc J.A.P ( J.A.Prestwich ) air cooled engine with a side exit Burgess exhaust.
The model 3, a 2.6 – 3 hp outboard, powered by an 80cc J.A.P air cooled engine with a water cooled exhaust which was cast into the leg.
The model 5, was a 5 hp outboard fitted with a J.A.P water-cooled engine that was jointly developed between Austin Burrell and J.A.P.
This was very similar to modern outboards being fully water cooled, it’s engine was also fully enclosed in a fibre glass casing
The range of outboards was updated in 1961
