Re: Sailboat without a mast
There are also purpose built small 'trawlers' that were designed for this sort of thing that would do the job as well if not better, without having to 'butcher' anything.
North Sea 26, Davidson 'Chugger', Albin 25 to name a few. These will have similar accommodations, likely a slightly bigger powerplant and would be working as designed, not a modified misfit....
