Saw it tried on a 28' Tartan (?) and the owner hated how the 15 hp longshaft OB prop would come out of the water
and immediately redline when the load was taken off the prop. He had the kind of articulating mount that would lower the outboard
well below it's cavitation plate, just too much fore & aft rocking, I guess. Original plan was to shift gears and throttle at the motor
, but that was too awkward when docking
with (wheel) steering
. He added cockpit
controls, but eventually unloaded the boat and let someone else deal with it. Additionally, the lower ouput of of the OB alternator
vs the Atomic 4 was problem.
