More elegant, more complicated solutions might indeed be needed to actually sail the boat.

Yeah, i was thinking just a simple zinc would work for a quick solution since the move isn't that long of a distance.
I refuse to pay a tow boat to tow the baot to the yard we are planning to go to, so i'm going to just sail the boat over and use the outboard(already have a mount) to motor
us into/out of docks. I figured since I have to go up to the boat to secure the prop tomorrow i might as well do it right and be done with it. I need to go over the photos I have of the engine
compartment, however I'm pretty sure if i bolt a 2x4 to the coupling that is exactly the witdh of the compartment, I can secure it in place with screws coming from the either side of the compartment(one side is the quarter birth, otherside could be a quarterbirth but is just storage
accessed from cockpit hatch
The question that I have currently is how much of a force should the propshaft see in terms of push/pull?
Also on a side note, I can't seem to find ANY information regarding someone doing something like this. I've searched google
and CF with no luck in terms of what others have done. Granted has to be talked about somewhere else on this internet
...No one is ever the first for something on the internet
these days. Anyone come across threads like this before? Possibly able to point me in those direction?
