Trusty “W” Update! VanNess Engineering Running Strong!
Here is the latest from VanNessville. The Crank has been all redone, as well as new Valves, and pretty much every part ,piston and whatever other stuff is out there. Just last night we got photos of the engine all together and primed! Wow.
You can click HERE for the VanNess website.

Just prompted me to look into Hercules Engines. Interesting history. http://www.gasenginemagazine.com/gas-engines/a-brief-history-of-hercules-engines.aspx
Has this ever been covered by WB? If so, I must have missed it.
Those FM inserts look as old as the boat .
Have to go over to see that lapstrake in the backround.
Definite engine envy here – very nice work by VanNess
