With the mechanical installation completed it was time for launching . I spent an afternoon with the Dippy doctor taking the boat on her maiden voyage before delivery to her new home on Stony lake . The six horsepower Caron engine performed beautifully . Below are some shots of the boat in the water .

The six horsepower Caron engine built in Montreal is a bit of an oddity . It is a two stroke engine that runs with oil in the crankcase and has two connecting rods that run on either side of the piston . The Dippy doctor commented that the boat was " Fast ! " -- about 8 1/2 mph over a measured mile . Speed is a matter of perspective . And if you're in a hurry forget it .
