Got a dink and a 4hp Mariner . Not a very heavy or big o/b but I've seen smaller. I'm plenty strong to heave and how it around so it's not the weight issue I'm inquireimg about. I like the idea of having the motor
lower and not on the rail. I'm looking at a panther 550010. Was thinking of mounting it to the stern just to stow the motor
. Maybe the up position just above the gunnells for storage
and traveling and ( haven't measured yet) possibly when down I can put the motor right on it from inside the dinghy
if I get lucky. Any how this is my first go round with having a dinghy
and aux so I'm not sure what everyone else does to make life convenient. Just don't like to clutter up the rail so much if I don't have to. Any one have pics and or suggestions? I would like to get a mast
pulpit and mount it there. But I've only found one place that sells them at 600 something apiece I'd say that highway robbery. Any how any pics would be appreciated. Thanks.
P.s. The boats a downeaster 32 it's got the high bulwarks and cap rail like those on a westsail.
