She was equipped with a stern rail which effectively prevented leaning back so I removed it. Leaning back is a capability you need in a 16' boat! Anybody need a stern rail?
She also came with a nice 2 horse engine. The motor mount was pretty much rusted away so I removed it as well. I found a nice aluminum mount on Ebay. When I tried it it seemed way too much for a little boat. I also got an electric trolling motor. It looks like the best plan may be a canoe paddle. After all, it is a sailboat.
