well thats what the previous owners started doing cause the old palmer was acting up...its big so I might have to do this fr the meantime while I either save up for a diy electric kit or get to a place where and atomic 4 is available

there is an off center retractable mount...for an outboard...we tried with an 8 yamaha 2 stroke and it was bareley enough againt full ebb...

issue as always with an outboard mount was cavitation and not enough depth...I have been looking at ways to lower the mount more...but the hardest issue is finding a USED long shaft 15hp or so outboard jejeje
