After a bit of looking around, I find the motor mount threads are getting old, and many pictures are now broken links. I would like a cheap alternative to a cheetah, and I'm looking for ideas and advice. Have a 1979 Hobie 16.
Here is my favourite thread on the topic:http://www.hobiecat.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=15050
- What if I capsize and dunk a motor (while it is not running, clearly)? Will it run afterwards?
- Electric or gas?
- How far will a little gas motor get me on a built-in fuel tank? An electric motor and battery?
- How can I make the bracket / mount? Can I bend the mount parts from thick steel sheets? Like in the other thread, above?
- Where can I get some of the pictures in XxTrasHxX's post in that thread?
Thanks for your thoughts.
