On outboard does buy you the ability to stretch your cruising territory by allowing you to get back from a farther distance if needed. I have never tried to row "slip jig", in fact I didn't even make any provisions for that but I can't imagine it being enjoyable to row. The Ilur has space designed in the bilge under the floorboards to stow oars neatly and out of the way. are working on two piece oars that will be the right length for a Navigator and similar wide beamed sailing boats, watch that space.

    I have used a suzuki 2.5 on a traditional 19ft clinker lake boat and it was more than enough. 2.5hp is the equivalent of 8 trained athletes for several hours. Average human can sustain 0.1 hp "continous". Not a fan of "seeing" the outboard on small boats.
