Helped out over the weekend taking a thing with flappy bits/cables/sticks from Faversham to River Stour by way of Brightlingsea as we werenít making much headway motor sailing against the NEís and oncoming tide!

To avoid that situation, if combo will be kept moored, simply raise motor fully up when out of use or after returning to Terra Firme.

Happy Boating

No I think itís more like a drascombe with an outboard well. You still canít tilt the engine. In either case Iím sure since itís not the OPs boat the preventative step would require time travel!

Correct it is a sailing boat, a Fantasie 19.

Inboard well with no option to tilt, or wouldíve been tilted.. the OB is a teeny 6hp fs that can lift out quite easily. Owner (in his 73rd year) has had a bout of ill health so gave up on the boat for a while, gave new home to our crusty friends. Also slowed the boat somewhat!

Left that image here as Iíd not seen the like before.

Boat is now on new mooring with OB lifted out/away.
