Primary difference is your boat was designed with the use of an outboard auxilliary from the beginning. The OP's boat was not. Yours has a reinforced transom, the OP's boat probably does not.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
