I bought an E-25CB a while back, and am almost done going through it. It came with an older Evinrude 10HP 2-stroke, but the idea of hauling around a 95# stink bomb on the stern and can of smelly gas in the cockpit is a major turn-off, especially since I will likely only use it for maneuvering on/off mooring. If I did use the outboard, I can’t imagine trailering with it mounted, but having to get it on and off the transom (which shows web cracks from the motor having been mounted) looks to be near impossible without a hoist. I recently saw that Torqueedo has a rudder-mounted electric pod drive married to a Hanse 35 - looks like an interesting concept. I can get a 150# thrust (about 4HP equivalent) electric trolling motor and a couple 100AH lithium batteries for less than $1500. My thought is to adapt the trolling motor drive pod to fit on the back of the rudder a couple inches from the bottom, with the motor and wiring faired into the rudder, and the controller in an enclosure on the transom and speed and direction switch on the tiller. I plan to beef up the rudder gudgeons, so I don’t see any issues related to stress. Call me crazy? Has anyone tried this? Suggestions? I have all the tools and materials at hand to do the work, just not sure it’s a practical idea.
