Yes I have seen that Mod but would like to incorporate a folding swim platform into it for dual purpose usage or a Armstrongnautical.com engine set back with swim platform incorporated in one also which would allow for a kicker to be stored on it as a back-up also , time to roam the net & see if I can find other options that I can make myself or find something used or new that I can convert into a mod that will not break the bank LOL

stuck one of the oars into the mast slot & found a 54" cut-off section of Alum foil left over from one of my Harken 01 installs will use it to make a bowsprit for the jib sail
