Re: new boat for me

Thank you any thought on leaving the gas OB off and going battery power? I will not be in the Ocean. Most of the time will be in small lakes and the 22 will be large in such small water. I might go to Lake Erie one weekend a summer. I have a lot of time on the lake but not much time under sail. That is the only time I might need an engine other than geting on and off the trailer. Time is funny because it is the next hour that counts the most. I have been looking at some 24 volt OB motors. I would like to stay with 12 volts as the rest of the boat is a 12 volt system. Right now I sail the FJ up and put it on the trailer did the same with a catalina two weeks ago (not mine) but I can see with a bigger boat an engine is a saftey issue. How safe is my plan of no gas on the boat?
