Re: hand crank outboard

There's a reason outboards are so powerful and use so much gas

Thanks John,
I've always been intrigued with the idea of sculling, I've seen videos of people moving 35 ft sailboats with a 14' oar at around 1.5 knots. Great for getting in and out of the dock, or as a backup.
and I'm sure very effective on a small trailer sailor. I use greenland style kayak paddles I made and I like to scull myself sideways. It's very effective.
I like that device for attaching to an oar. it's a good idea. basically it makes a yuloh from an oar. I might try something like that.

Thanks for the tips.

Andrew tried a crank outboard out at a Depoe bay show, they're not
a new
idea. It didn't look like it worked very well. But maybe that was
because of the operator. <g> Mighta worked better if the propeller
was closer to horizontal... <> <>
