Wow, great reply! Thanks for all that good info. I can see the legroom being an issue, especially if I have to have my gas tank sitting in the back of the cockpit. Currently I have a newer 5 hp. long shaft with the separate tank. I am thinking of a swap to a long shaft 3.5 with an internal fuel tank.

My sails are in pretty good shape now. The jib will need to go soon though.

I am planning a mainsheet with an end boom set-up. It will be set up on the transom kind of like stock.

I will be leading all the lines back to the cockpit and using cam cleats for the jib sheets and v cleats for the halyards.

I am planning on building a roller furling jib with the pvc.

I will look into the lazy-jack system. Great idea.
