  1. Positioning the outboard low is a risk. Higher and long shaft is safer. Once, long ago, I had an Alan Wright Pacer (24ft) trailer yacht. In cook strait, in strong conditions, trying to get into Tory Channel, several times the outboard was completely immersed by following seas - I would not have wanted one mounted any lower! Yes, fortunately it kept going! It was a long shaft mariner. Also, as the motor is mounted right aft, they are prone to lifting props out of the water when choppy.....

  3. Again, in your price range the construction specifics are irrelevant. Raf more important is the recorded upkeep of hte boat during its life and hte opinion of your surveyor. A well maintained yacht of any construction will be a much better buy than a neglected yacht of any construction. Which is not to put you off grp, just to widen the scope of your hunt.
