Re: Outboard Advice

It depends on far or how much time you might need to motor

I have two different friends with harbor 20s with the electric drive and solar system that survive on moorings

BUT they daysail off the moorings and really only use the unit for very short amounts of time


If you need to run 2 hours because you went on a longer sail and there is no wind and a foul current then gasoline becomes the better pick

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
