Re: Pimp my outboard mount

Just curious Sully...is the original inboard engine still in the boat? Shaft / prop?

Re: Pimp my outboard mount

No the engine was removed. Aperture faired in. That's how I wanted it anyway, sort of a pure sailing boat like the Pardey's. That said, I'm not that confident a sailor yet that I would feel totally comfortable sailing engineless, although for the past two weeks that's basically what I've been doing. The boat is really great under sail alone. I just would like a little insurance for the time being.

Re: Pimp my outboard mount

Good to hear you got the prop fixed and are lowering the mount. I don't like the angle your motor is at though. I'm assuming you have the pin maxed out to get the motor to sit as level as possible...? I'd at least mount it to an angled block to level it out better. I think 6hp is enough as long as you know it's limitations. I have a 6hp Tohatsu sailpro with the 25" long shaft on my Alberg 30. I did the outboard motor well conversion like Atom Voyages. I have no regrets about taking the diesel out. The outboard saved my ass when my rudder shaft broke free of the rudder in 25kts. wind. I was able to get back into harbor and dock fairly easily. An unexpected benefit of having the outboard.!
