There''s a guy in Toronto who has designed a replacement Sail Drive that is Electric - He''s fabricated a plate to replaace the OMC (POS) drive. Being Electric it is virtually maintenence free - all you need to worry about in the winter is the batteries!
I LOVE this solution, since I use the motor to get in and out of our slip - but thats it! (I''ll get power for 2 hours of runtime since I''m a seasoned sailor and know better)
Now I don''t have to have gas/deisel on board, no loud, vibrating iron jenny, and best of all, plug in the boat after a sail and thats it! no oil, no temp issues, no through hulls, ahhhhhhh, heaven!
