currently my 36' tri has a 9.9 Yamaha outboard
which slides up and down on the transom in a bracket. works like a charm if I don't go up against a chop. then of course it ventilates and is pretty useless.
So I'm thinking of either building and engine
well or buy a saildrive
. My course of thought is that an engine
well would be cheaper since I can use the existing outboard
and an even rigg it up so that the outboard turns with the rudder
Never build an engine well before - any thoughts, tips, experiences would be tremedously appreciated.
