Unfortunately, I have not come up with a sparkling idea to install the outboard as inconspicuously as possible. The beautiful shape of the boat suffers in any case. My first attempt was a 5 mm stainless steel plate.

In this arrangement, I underestimated the small distance between rudder blade and propeller, Actually (dry test in the winter storage) nothing should have happened, but in strong wind from aft and engine on reverse drive the plastic pin for the interlock system broke with the result that the propeller got damaged after hitting the rudder. So there had to be a new attempt.


Advantage now: There is enough space between the propeller and the rudder and I can rotate the outboard 360​​° - without hitting the rudder.

Disadvantage: The lever arm is much further away from the midships line, the propeller is not quite so deep.

The ventilation hood is a great way to route cables into the boat to the battery (mounted on the starboard side for weight-balance). The tiller placed on the cockpit flap has the advantage that the turning gas is operated directionally and allows a view to the speed display.                                               

The ventilation hood on the foredeck I installed midships. So far without any problems with jib.

In order to avoid having to cover the cockpit overnight, I use a small E-pump (Rule LoPro 900S), which is powered by a small LiPo battery.
