Problem with swamping

Hi there all, was thinking on putting an electric outboard on my swim grid. My problem is trying to keep the waves from drowning it. The grid is very solid, about three inches above the water. My problem is with a following sea, I get some big waves back there. Is there some way of mounting it where I can get it out of danger of being swamped, without taking it off? Thank you very much.

Re: Problem with swamping

What size/weight outboard? A Torqueedo? I'm assuming this is about storage, not driving a 40ft trawler.

Honestly, one wouldn't store any outboard where it could be swamped or splashed frequently. Can you not store it on a bracket on the stern rail?

No, It Is gonna be a 20 hp electric. No It will not push my boat, but I have mega batteries and want to increase speed. Thinking on something like a waterproof box, like three feet high.
