Hello All,
I just purchased a 1977 Pirateer so I joined this group hoping to gain some knowledge. I have never owned a sailboat before and have never sailed. I am sure I will have some rigging questions soon but for now I was wondering if anyone had a Pirateer with the outboard motor bracket. I am wondering what it looks like and how it attaches to the boat. I anyone has some pictures they could post, that would be great. I would like to have this option and since I doubt I will find one, I would like to fabricate one. I would like to be able to mount an electric trolling motor in case it is needed.


Thanks,

Never mind. After looking at things, I've decided to make a bracket that fits on the gudgeon since I doubt I would ever be using the rudder and the trolling motor at the same time That way don't have to add any more hardware to the back of the boat either.

Thanks for the welcome CaptainScott! I already downloaded the PDF files you have for the Pirateer. Good information but only a brief mention of the accessories that were available and no pictures of the outboard motor bracket. That is o.k. though because like I mentioned in a follow up post I decided to make a bracket that mounts on the gudgeon since I don't think I will be using the rudder and the trolling motor at the same time.

I did make a bracket like this and it worked but I wouldn't recommend doing it that way. When you are not using the trolling motor it takes up space in the boat and tends to get in the way. I am going to have to come up with a bracket for the back of the boat like the optional one that Chrysler had for it. I wish I knew what one of those looked like and how they work, but I will come up with something.
