I would like to get some input with regards to using the C-14.2 as a motor boat (without sails). I am making a motor mount that can be placed in the middle of the transom without having to remove the pintle/gudgeons. I'd like to put a gas motor in it every once in a while to take the family out...
The hatch cover is easily made if you have a few basic tools like a saw.
1. Take some measurements
2. Buy plywood in Lowe's/Home depot.
3. Cut out the door.
4. Use mahogany wood stain
5. Cover with marine varnish for shiny look.
Looks nicer than the factory one !!
