"I saw that Torqueedo have brought out a much larger "cruising" model, I think it is equivalent to maybe 8hp. I'd love to have a pair of those for our Pahi 42, but I really doubt they'd be powerful enough - and I'm never…"

"Torqueedo makes a long shaft elecrric engine in the 3 horse equivalent which is 29.5 inches.  They also make larger engines.  Yes, expensive.  But for me, starting a gasoline powered engine with a pull cord is not possible.  I…"

"Agreed but it is a bit tricky single handed :-) and not easy for getting in out of a Mediterranean mooring where you have boats on either side."

"Realistically, primary propulsion outboards for a sailboat should be an extra long shaft (25") with taller gears and different propellers. These are not well suited to a dingy. You can always hip tie your dingy to the quarter for back-up…"

Selecting a dinghy outboard

We had a protracted problem with our main engine this year.  Fortunately we had just bought a engine for the dinghy and were able to use it to move Mango (T30); however, we had bought a short shaft engine for the dinghy, which is normal, but it cavitated badly on Mango if there was a chop so we would have been better of buying a long shaft for the dingy to give us a good back up engine for Mango and put up with the inconvenience on the dinghy of a deeper prop. See More

Robert Sheridan replied to Bart Koop's discussion what motor for a tiki 30 ?
"We think that our engine support is to plan.  We have a 8hp Yamaha 4 stroke with a long shaft and high thrust.  We find lifting the engine is fine and the bottom of the shaft is just above the bottom of the boat so it is unlikely to catch…"

Tiki 30 centre section available

We have replaced our Tiki 30 open cockpit with a pod. We still have the old centre section, which is in good repair, and if anyone wants it and is willing to collect it from East Yorkshire UK please get in touch.

Old cockpit has now been recycled into a stern walkway and engine well cover. The foam sandwich is really light and stiff so ideal for this sort of application so we have salvaged as much as we can and will store it pending the next project.

I started sailing with the seasons along the US East Coast over 20 years ago and am very familiar with all of it from southern Maine to lower Florida. There are many inlest from ocean to protected Intra Coastal Waterway and most experienced cruisers with good sea boats enjoy a little of both as weather dictates. One can anchor the whole way so marina fees need not apply.
Look forward to seeing you, ann and Nev
