IMHO Don't entertain this option (been there, done that):
- It'll kick around in the bottom of the boat for months and months, get broken, scratched, sprayed with salt water...
- Will you be able to manuover it over the transom when required? (If you keep it on the transom, chancer are you'll break or loose it soon enough)
- Will it start when you want it to?
- Will it move the boat adequatly when you want it to?
If you are seriously considering an aux. you need twins - i dobout you are in this situation. Buy a single new engine, look after it and carry an anchor and a VHF.
That said and done i'll probably consider twins again in my next boat, but then again my conclusion will probably be a bigger single again.
Manos, with due respect, what value has your pictures added to this thread?
