Just to note that after a season and a half with the evolve, which I was skeptical about (not liking the mounting options), we really like it. It increases time on the water by making it possible to sail on a day with a dying wind without worrying about going out to the interesting water and getting stranded. It also makes it possible to get back upstream to dock against the Hudson's strong tides. The motor is sturdy and quiet. It would be great if the display had better legibility and if the motor had twice the range (but it is possible to bring a second battery). We carry the motor on a tramp every time we go out and drop it into the drive well when needed, swapping out the mirage drive.
