Re: Thinking of Losing My Inboard

Only a bad idea to the degree that you may be concerned with the lack of ability to have your prop remain in the water if you are relying on breaking an inlet under power. At some times you may wish to have the engine power in short period waves and at these times the outboard might not function well. If you can expect to cruise only with reliance of sails or in protected water with the best of weather; then, this plan might be suitable.
