In the past year I lost my place that I used to sail on a large lake in virginia. I haven't had the boat in for a while and want to sail her on a local lake that does not allow gas engines. I rebuilt an old 1948 1.5 hp gale outboard engine that is very simple and has sevred me very well. I built a nice aluminum transom mount so the engine is out and down off the back and does not interfere with any lines like the traveler, etc. and can be "kicked up" out of the water when under sail. I would like to get an an electric troller for this small nearby lake. My Idea was to put the battery up in the cuddy and run the wires through the bilge area and put some connectors through the hull at some point to connect the motor. I'm trying to come up with a good motor to use. I really have no need of the tiller type handle sticking up as the boat will be steered with the rudder. I would be interested in any ideas that you people might have on motors or setups. I would really like to find a troller that had been damaged so I could play around with it and come up with my own design.
