An excellent point, CL. In fact, my first thought is to not change anything, but to just use the "kicker" to putter around. If it suits, then I make permanent changes, if it doesn't, sell it and break even or give up a little for the experience. If it works, it has a new "intended purpose".
- and, I've never seen a boat in this size range that actually does do what I would be hoping to accomplish - short of building my own. Southwest Georgia hasn't yet been run over with small, economical motor cruisers yet.
However, in a pinch, you can drive a nail with a rock if you're patient.
Especially if you don't mind throwing the rock away when you're done.
No offense taken. It's a discussion. If we all agree, at least one of us is superfluous.
