    This is to be my winter project this year so trying to get all the info together about these.
    I believe that the Italian engine builder, Selva, made F3 engines.

    check out this boat for more info http://www.bollinsracing.com.au/boats/
    also you can go to http://www.uhpbc.net/photo_gallery.htm to see some of the club boats in action
    Powered by a 1250 or do you mean the class max is 1250cc?

    Hi powerabout, i couldnt answer your question properly as i race F1 river races, but the current Aussy rule book says F3 -1.25ltr carby or EFI min hull lngth 3.5m 350KG so i would presume max power 1250 as we also have an 1250 - 1800cc class, also yamato & 800cc classes.
    Cheers
