Re: Name of part
I concur with Hartley 18!
BTW...As far as I know, "Amidships" means half way between the Bow and Stearn (definition 1. below). Definition 2 is rather ambiguous, but I doubt it means the lateral center of the boat, as having 2 definitions for the same term would be confusing.
Definition of AMIDSHIPS
1: in or toward the part of a ship midway between bow and stern
2: in or toward the middle
When I say my motor is Amidships everyone knows what I mean, though it's unusual. Obviously, most motors (and hopefully, Backstays!) are centered laterally (or close to it).
Am I wrong?
