Bryan thanks for photos. I'd like to turn your attention to the last
one showing the outboard mounted on the transom, with the throttle
hanging low over the last bulkhead.
This is the problem I had on my campjon: too tight for easy handling a
throttle on it's most low position. This position is very comfortable
for motorboating beginners as always I am during maneouvres (ahead,
back, turn left, turn right, low throttle, high throttle and so on)
especially when you are fosused on everything outside your boat, you
have so much to think about, and it's an advantage if you can avoid
lifting a throttle.
So if I built a powerboat again I would repeat a similar recess like a
transom has, to make more space below a throttle. You can just check
if it concerns your boat.
- Thanks for the heads up. That is the exact reason I put the motor on and
also to make sure I got the recess on the transom right. I think I am going to
shorten that bulkhead that you are talking about.
yesterday I was sitting in the boat for about an hour and a half trying to
go through every possible situation . My wife came outside and said that I
was acting weird again! Hopefully my glass and epoxy will be in some time this
week so I can finish her up.
Have a great day
