I'd like to do that
Unless you plan to run up and down the deck hugging your outboard it doesn't apply.
..... but I couldn't run up and down the deck carrying nothing since I don't have a deck.
I fail to understand how the addition of 30 more pounds on the stern would suddenly cause a horrible rocking motion, bad pointing, bad leeward steerage, poor light wind when having two 215 lb adults sitting at the stern, one 60 lb motor, and one 30 lb gas tank did not.
I have to conclude that while the potential is certainly there
, those who have experienced it, must sail in waters that are quite different than where I sail.
Of course the information is wonderful to have
, and if it turns out to be an issue, I will certainly sit closer to the cabin, stow the 30 lb Torqeedo, and move the gas tank to the central starboard side.
I cannot do anything about the 60 lb motor since that can't be moved, and there are times when I need a motor that big, since I don't have a slip, I have a mooring, and in the event of a hurricane, I need to get the boat out of the water to launching 6 miles away, while pulling a dinghy, against the tide and wind in Murphy's Law rough seas(or 12 miles south to a safe harbor in worse conditions on the ocean).
Thanks for your help.
