FWIW, there is a Pacific Seacraft
37 with a canoe stern here that has a unique way to store his outboard
. He's installed one of those drop down outboard motor
brackets on the stern. Hangs the outboard on that. Looks like it is mounted too high for the outboard to function as propulsion
so it's strictly a storage
device. When the mount is down, the motor
is at an easy height to transfer from the mount to dinghy
transom and back and forth. When stowed in the up position, the motor isn't in the way hanging off the pushpit. It is probably a whole lot more secure from being ripped off or mangling the pushpit from a boarding wave, yet is still high enough that it won't get inudated except in survival conditions. Got me thinking about installing one of those mounts. I've got way too much stuff hanging off my pushpit and the motor is always getting in the way.
