oars over a motor?

after a little over a year, I''ve used my motor once every time I went out, with one exception.

In normal conditions, I use it to power directly upwind from the tip of my finger of docks, aproximatley 150 feet.

In Santa Ana''s I use it to power that same 150 feet out of my dock (which is then directly upwind)

the exception: After letting my father take the helm as I went below, I used it to get us off the rocks. =(

But yes, that is a very valid point, and I will definatley be testing out my rowing/sculling situation before I decide to let my beautifull little 2hp honda go.

As for Josie, She sails (slowly, but with directional control) in 3 knots true.
