to below the protective shield of the keel? Depending of course
on "how long" the shaft actually is. On Lestat, Peter installed a
bronze traveller that was raised high enough to give more room for
the motor head to clear the opening when raised. It can be just
barely seen in the photo at Bolger 3 in the Lestat folder.
The B&S motors might be another option - eith 4-stroke or electic.
