Re: 32 clipper marine aft ketch

Don't think you would be happy with an outboard on that size boat.

I think for 27 and under great. But you get in any wave action on the bow and you'll be sorry that prop coming out of the water and you don't make any headway.

Also the cost of a good outboard high thrust you could haul get a new strut and bearing. While it's out of the water you can do your regular bottom maintenance.

Just my two cents

Re: 32 clipper marine aft ketch

If your strut and prop were chewed up by galvanic corrosion or D.C. Stray current chances are good you'll need a new shaft as well.
