Thanks for posting the details of your outing..this forum serves it's purpose best when real-world situations can be discussed, analyzed, etc... someone can learn something useful that may help someone else.

In this case I'd say try to get that Atomic 4 fixed...using an outboard with a big 32-foot Irwin has got to be a bear since that prop cant be too far below the water. Propeller cavitation is a nuisance at times with my SF 24 and 9.8 sailmaster outboard but single-handing a 24-footer is one thing...I'd imagine a 32-footer is alot more boat under those conditions when your alone..
