America Catboat 18 motor well question
« on: March 30, 2016, 08:09:40 PM »
I am the new owner of a 1976 Herreshoff America located on Cape Cod. She will be my “summer boat” as I live-aboard my IP 38 in Florida and desire to escape the heat. I bought her sight unseen to sail to Maine this June and July. I need help with some dimensions. I would like to repower her with a newer outboard with electric start so I can charge a small house battery. Any idea on what will fit in the well? The dimensions including height? Also will I need a long shaft or short shaft?
Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
