wildcard is an unknown quantity at this point
Thank you for one of the few intelligent replys. It's a full keel 35 footer that does not like to turn to port in either direction. Electric motors can be found that have a long cradle for lack of a beter term. You just flip them up and they go down and lock in place. They can also be run by IR remote saving the extra wiring. I think it would fit nicely along the toe rail with a cover to avoid the afore mentioned comments.
Id just like to know if anyone has done it and how it worked?
Lack of ability? Hey, I have one motor why not two? Im not good enough to do it without any power nor are most so why fight it?
