Fairwinds Marina in Annapolis is currently selling 15 HP, 2 stroke, short shaft motors for $1899. That is a very good price, but limited to current stock.

I bought the AB from Maritime Solutions in Annapolis.

You're very welcome. You are going to love it. Give a shout when you get into town, perhaps we can hook up for a beer.

If you guys are going to install more D-rings ... make sure the hull is solid at the attachment points ... not just 2 skins close together. The bolted joint will eventually fail from movement of the parts or point loading/fracturing the inner or outer hull skins. That was/is the failure mode on Caribe front towing eyes (maybe AB? too) ... if there is a gap between skins.
