Re: Outboard motor slide

Here in the Pensacola shipyard, there is a catamaran named Kitty Wake, it has two outboards suspended on a hinge system. It is raised and lowered with a block and tackle arrangement. If you would like I can go buy and get some pictures of the set up. Just my two cents, Mike.
