Boat & power chosen, Where does AUX go

Right men some ideas please , New 8.5 chosen with single verado 275. New 30 hp lightweight chosen as aux power. Where do I stow it. My last 6.3 with 150 opti had a ten strapped behind last two jockeys at stern and was a sound set up, but i'd like to get the weight forward if I can, strapped inboard meant little buffeting, but I like good balance (in case of take off - and oh yea, I've had a few hehe). Any one tried to get the o/b shaft under a double jockey seat for stowage?

Are you serious?Do you think you can manhandle a 30hp motor over the stern and clamp it on at sea?

clamping a 10 or 15 on the back at sea would be tricky but a 30 would be really tough, remember there is not much room reaching over so you have to think you might need to do it single handed!!


unless you are jeff capes

Yes we worked out a system of winching it over the A frame, and lowering it onto the aux bracket. Force 6 this was tested (well a slightlty lighter motor granted, but bear in mind this is a light weight 30) should say I'm, 6'5" hehe

Well BigMuz is taking some stick here for his large choice of aux, although he deserves some credit as you do see many large ribs with small aux's as an after thought, i.e 7.5m with a 3.3hp. Following on from Phil Davies's comment earlier today a 3.3hp will provide as much propulsion as a rampant rabbit

A 30HP Tohatsu 2 stoke is 51kgs and its 30HP 4 stroke counterpart is 69.5kg.

51KG is not a massive amount but they are awkward to carry and would be difficult to clamp on the transom in a rough sea. The ideal engine would probably be a 15HP or a 20HP, however, the Tohatsu 18HP is 41KG, for 10KG more you can get the 30HP with 50% more power.

Your havinga laugh

i 'attempted' a 25hp as an aux engine last year, and thought of a happy stow a way place for it on a 9.5m boat.. did not work in any fashion or form.

If it is not fixed in a place ready to go, forget it.... unless you are only taking out weight lifters, when you need it........ believe me an aux that size is a dream, that will not come true.
