Thanks for the replies. Good point. I'm not exactly sure how much an extra 20 pounds hanging off the back would affect my performance...in what ways would that affect performance? Slower, reduced pointing ability, something else? I would spin it around but the transom is sloped forward and it is quite a reach to the motor....and I have a beer belly
You are right about the money though. I could buy a stereo, GPS
and a Jib
for that almost. The next owner will definitely not appreciate the $1200 put into the motor, but I might, and the girlfriend will definitely will appreciate not having to push the boat out of the slip.
