Out­board en­gines

Yachting Monthly - - EXPERT ON BOARD -

The third great dinghy sin is to leave a boat in a crowded park or along­side a yacht with her out­board ‘up’. It may guard against marine growth, but a sharp prop will wreak de­struc­tion on any neigh­bour­ing boats. I’ve seen a prop munch through a rub­ber dinghy in a night. If you’re both­ered by growth, ei­ther rig a soft plas­tic bucket over the prop so it can’t do any dam­age, or buy a smaller out­board, carry it home and frus­trate the bur­glars into the bar­gain.
