If he would, I'd bet Murray out of Kitamat would post his OB mount on his swim step. Both he and I have the set up. We use a 9.9 HI THRUST Yamaha. We can steer with the main rudder while fishing. One could use an extension handle if need be for throttle operation. Nice as it serves as your "Git a Home' motor. Ours pushes the 28' Marben pocket trawler at 4.5 plus knots with the tide at 3/4 throttle and about 2.5 against the tide. (depending on tidal flow, these being extreme)
