Auxilliary Outboard advice
After years of running with just my single main outboard, I am thinking its time to splash out on an aux for safety sake - given how far we journey, and mostly alone
Due to weight and size, and trawling previous posts on here, I am considering a 6HP 4S.
Given those with experience of such matters- is this likely to be any use in a emergency, and would I need a short or long leg ( Merc 4S)
Rib is a 6m Cobra with 25" transom (Opti is XL). I am unclear as obviously the motor will be well off centre and I do not know how deep the aux should run when off plane which it will be.
The Cobra has a thin, 70mm wide 'spray' flange across the top of the transom so I will need a spacer bracket. Will a fixed type be better than a lifting one ::: or has anyone better thoughts
Thanks for any advice
