How many pups are left

I give up, what's the answer?

??

and were dog boxes and pigeon boxes ever used for same, it seems a bit daft to carry live pigeons when a sawn off shotgun could get you fresh meat most days.

You clever person, you. :)

 I wasn't being facetious. I don't know what a pup is in Boat Heritage.

A Bolinder PUP  is a Swedish single Cylinder Diesel Industrial Engine which found it's way into quite a few Canal Boats ,it was Small enough and Fairly reliable .previous Diesels were too big for Small Boats.

I know very little about Bolinders , they Transformed into Volvo a bit later or became part of Volvo.

Bolinder merged with Munktell in 1932 and made tractors. The Bolinder Munktell company was aquired by Volvo in 1950 and continued to make tractors under the Bolinder Munktell name until the early 1970's when the name changed to Volvo. They still make tractors today.

Slightly off 'Barking Pups' but does anybody have the link to Koukouvagia's Kelvin as a backing group to a towpath singer? I've often looked but can't find it.

If you look at really big yellow earth movers and dump trucks some are badged VolvoBM.  The BM stands for Bolinder Munktell.

As I don't think it has been stated, although I'm no expert on Bolinders the "Pup" was the 9HP engine, I think, largely intended for use in motors that worked singly.

Where a boat was used in a pair with a butty the 15HP, (and possibly other models) were ar more common.

From memory of previous threads on this topic (on CWDF and elsewhere) very few of the Bolinders now in preserved historic boats are the 9HP "Pup".  Most are the more powerful 15HP model, even in FMC boats that might have once had a "Pup".

If a definitive list has been published of what engine s in which boats, I don't know where to find it.

I think Minnow has had a Pup in relatively recent history, but as what is now in it has a gearbox, I'm guessing what is currently there is larger.  As usual, I may be wrong. FMC boats and Bolinders are not really my forte!

Kelvin was indeed a Glaswegian manufacturer of engines, run by a family called Bergius and located in Dobbie's Loan which is probably not as picturesque as it sounds. Their speciality was fishing boat engines and they survived until fairly recent times. This is from memory, I'm sure others will give more accurate information.

 

Kelvin Hughes? Didn't he play right-half for Leicester City?
