I do like the idea of a notched piece of wood and also agree a lighter motor would be better,Years ago I had a 40+ and found it great.but in truth the mariner is not powerful enough most of the time, going out through a narrow channel and over a shingle bar and through the breakers,The situation tends to be worse
trying to get back in with the breakers hitting you in the rear unless you go fast enough to ride them.I guess a wayfarer with outboard is just not suitable for
my chosen venue and in future i’ll potter around Poole and studland. keith
