Re: Do you have an outboard for back up propulsion?

I once lashed a Honda 2hp to the swim ladder on a Catalina 270, ladder was held horizontal by lines, at WOT the boat actually got up to 3 kts. EVENTUALLY. It was very slow to start moving, March, middle of the night, pouring rain and I only had to move 1/4 mile. It was dead still and calm with no current, just cascades of rain and dark.
