I'd rather have 2 electric
outboards that can be slid/rotated out of the water
than the proprietary complexity of a diesel/electric that uses clutches/transmission/sail drive. If my brushless 2500 watt trolling motor
can be deployed on a 5' x 1 3/8" fiberglass
shaft then a 10-15k watt electric motor
can do the same in a similar fashion.
