My outboard setup
I use a tohatsu 6hp 4 stroke sailpro with a 25 in shaft. My mount is a clavey paddlesports rear tube mount. To this I mounted an adjustable mount which raises the motor 8 1/2 inches out of the water. The engine has a 3.1 gallon exteranl tank which is great. I have a NRS E-140, 14 foot self bailer with 29inches of kick. The set up is perfect. I have a suspended wood floor in the stern which makes a great motoring cockpit, or I mount it on the bow and motor stern first when I have passengers and gear in the rear. This setup will push a lot of rafts when needed for flatwater pushes in the wind on Cataract, Deso, Ruby Horsethief, Weswater. You get the pic. The adjutable mount lets me get my prop down as far as I need, then raise it well clear. It also gets the motor away from the raft tube.
