outboard on a Soling..?
Just bought myself a Soling and before I get purist's backs up...
I am a sailor and a brand new suit of sails have just been ordered for the boat!
The area in which I (will soon) sail, the weather can be quite changeable.
I have been thinking about safegaurds against being becalmed/winds picking up beyond my competence level.
I would like to know if anybody has ever done this to a Soling or similar boat.
I want to fit a lift on/off type small engine for just such circumstances.
Also any advice on power output you would recommend etc etc
Again pls I want to do this with the least loss in Sailing performance and the least modification (damage) to the boat....!
Looking forward to hearing everybody's thoughts.
