Re: what kind of headwind should a sailboat be able to motor through?
Within a week of buying the boat the mixing elbow clogged up. It had a split in it from freezing (perhaps years ago). I hadn't seen it when inspecting the motor because of the location. Long story short, the thing leaked like a sieve and I had a local machine shop build one up. I will eventually replace it with a original part.
That said, the motor issued existed prior to he mixig elbow trouble.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off your bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.
