    The boat was a common sight in my youth, typically a home-built clinker set up for two rowing stations (maybe 13-14-ft). The motor is supposed to be a 2-or 3-hp Typhoon, curious who might have produced it

    Not in Hunn’s book. Picture is probably from the ’50s

    I don’t know about the motor, but i sure like the oarlocks. Nice photo.
    If he has a motor, why is he rowing?

    People of my generation didn’t have outboards. Maybe he forgot he had it ?

    It has an air-cooled look about it, open cowl and typical recoil, so possibly a JAP based motor. I’ll have a look through my archives & a local collector may have more gen.

    My first thought was ;
    An "Aldell" from Sweden
    but it makes more sense if you tell us where this picture was taken .
    then you can skip a couple brands or countries and concentrate more on local brands.

    Don’t know what outboard that it, but pretty sure
    that’s a downrigger on the side of the boat for
    catching the "Loch Ness Monster".
    Neat photo.

    Prepare to be boarded!

    Quite certain the motor is not North American.

    Buc, that reel doesn’t look familiar to me either, but note the absence of fishing poles. In those days, handlining was the thing, and that reel was probably there to retrieve whatever bit. This wasn’t sportfishing, in the good ol’ days you and your kin could go hungry if you didn’t catch anything..

    The picture is from northern Norway (about 70 degrees N) in the neighborhood where my father grew up. Bunch of islands in the North/Arctic Sea..

    And Kees, I too suspect it might be Swedish (perish the thought), but I would have expected it to be called something else. ‘Typhoon’ sounds Asian to me…

    Whatever is going on in that picture can’t be good if he is using those oars! Hope he not to far from home. Picture probably taken by a rescuer! Ben there done that.

    Kees, it appears you’re right on. It is a Norwegian-built and badged Aldell, built by an outfit called Sleipner. Google seems to hint they are no longer in the outboard business, but still around.

    Hey Dale,
    As a gentleman of a certain generation, I’m pretty sure he’d screw around with that little noisemaker only as a last resort. And maybe not even then. That boat was built for rowing, and that’s what we did in those days. I still have long arms and a queasy back to remind me…lol

    thank you and yes ! I saw it right.
    stole this from the WWW.
    Sleipner Sleipner Motor A/S in Fredrikstad Norway made agreements to produce the Aldell Motor and market it under its own name “Sleipner Taifun”.

    and here the original Aldell

    BTW, nice photo

    Kees -thanks for the advertisements. I assume "utombordsmotorn" means "Outboard Motor" in Norwegian ?
