What about the electric saildrive options? MasterVolt and several others offer that option and are quite small footprint. I am curious about the losses compared to hydraulics but my best source was my late father but he's gone now. I know lots of larger ships do generators to electric drives (and locomotives too). Why not an electric get home engine? With a folding prop, it should be minimal maintenance and drag.
