Seems like an uncharacteristically pragmatic way of dealing with having no engine; carrying an engine for use 'as needed'.
I also must agree that the looks of an outboard hanging off your pretty stern overhang is anathema.
Your bracket bracket looks pretty solid too. Time will tell. If it works then you can patent it and see if it helps your cruising kitty.
For those that asked, I believe that CnC has a 30' S&S sloop, IIRC. Nice looking boat and he has really spared few details with his re-fit.
It is going to be along winter so as far as I'm concerned you can make baiting comments all winter long but in the spring you better be heading somewhere.
