motors are mounted on vertical slides that allow raising the motors clear of the water
. You could do all service
right there on the stern step, but Iíd probably lift
one clear and work in the cockpit
since there a dropped screw has a chance of recovery. So motor
work is very easy. With the dedicated block and tackle setup my wife was able to lift
the motors. I wouldnít say easily, but she could do it.
The motors can lift clear of the water
but Tom said that better sailing performance is had by leaving then partially submerged and inserting a piece of foam to block up the opening. This can sand to be improved upon. Best would be to raise the motors clean and insert a plug
Also when sailing in anything other than flat smooth water you get splash from the 105Mc sonic drive. So that neat arch seat gets soaked petty quickly. The TomCat seat says dry in the same conditions.
