Looks like you might be able to mount the prodject next to the main motor. it will work if it isnt centered, most trolling or backup motors often sit to the side of the main motor anyway
I looked at the rear and it does not look like there will be enough room for both motors. I can try to make the two square steel motor mount plates smaller then see if that helps. Or if it is easier, just take off the 30 hp motor and hook up the prototype.
That will kinda suck if you have to remove the 30 to test the prototype. But then again, it isnt that big of a deal unmounting the 30. I can see it now, You will use it once, prove to yourself it works, take a few pictures, then remount the 30 and never look back hehehe.
That will probably happen, not the way I envisioned it orgiginally. Just a thought, if I sent this thing to you, would you be interested in using/testing it, maybe making improvements? Its really a heap of bad welding and leaking lower end but I am curious if it would work.
Wonder what the shipping cost on that would be from California to Maine.
If you shiped it up I can test it, and maybe make a modification or 2. I am pretty certain it will work. From what I understand, the only real hurdle left is stopping the lower unit from leaking. Hmm, well, that and the starter rope,, I dont have a cordless drill anymore.
