My previous heavy weather motor sailing experience was under main sail only, on a Catalina 27 with a 9.9 HP o/b. That went well, and our ride was definitely smoother.

We haven't tried it on the new boat, but I appreciate Faster's advice about heeling when it comes to the engine. Another part of the inboard learning curve.

It's not my fault they named a movie after our boat
