The Hicks is a San Francisco built engine cir. 1912, with robust design and engineering. It is reliable and simple to operate. A very friendly low-speed, low-noise, 'chug-chug-chug motor', built the same year as Titanic.
The ignition, navigation lights and searchlight are all 12 volt. A solar cell keeps the battery topped off. Fuel supply is by gravity, there is no fuel pump or alternator. There is very little to ever need service or to get out of order. There is no starter motor - the engine is readily started by foot, slowly rolling over the flywheel. There is a compression release that makes this an easy process. It is curious and amazing to onlookers watching the flywheel slowly turn. The flywheel speed simply increases and the engine comes to life with a 'chug, ...chug, ...chug'.
