Also, how does a solid link between rudder and motor work if, once you're done with the motor, you're going to kick up the outboard to reduce drag, which is what we do on this lightweight boat? Seems to me learning to do both manually is part of the learning curve.

Just disconect the link.

Conecting the two will ensure the rudder does not get eaten by the prop.
