In the late 1960's we sailed a 26' Thunderbird displacing approximately 3800# out of Sausalito, Ca. Our Aux was a 1962 Evenrude "Angler" 6hp 2-stroke mounted in a well that proved quite adequate for our requirements under all circumstances.

FWIW...

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
