new impeller for 1949 outboard

The impellers used on old Sea King 5 horse outboards are shaped like a ring with only one arm, rather than the modern paddle-wheel type used on engines today. Does anyone have a clue as to where I can get some NEW ones? The engine is in great shape and cries out to be used! Thankew, John

Doug Penn might have them or if not he would know who does.

Study the history of naval architecture and move forward knowing what didnít work before.

Donít waste time making the same old mistakes but instead make new ones and to insure your place in history be sure the mistakes are big ones.

Never design a mast that is weaker then the boat

Never listen to someone describe why your project will not work unless they can show you the broken pieces of their own version.

Sorry John. We, both the museum and I use him as a source for antique outboard parts and I assumed he was well known as a source. But if he was known to you then you wouldnít have asked the question in the first place so itís true I can be an idiot at times. You can reach him at douglas.penn@gmail.com. I can recommend him without any reservations.
All the best,
