Hello Im new to this site and would like to see if anyone out there could lend some advice. I have a San Juan 28 that I purchased from a friend in coastal Alaska. It is my first boat and I have been gaining experience doing short trips (2-10 days) on Prince William Sound. As our trips have become longer and we are traveling farther from port I’ve wanted to install a backup motor in case I have engine troubles that I can’t trouble shoot in the field and there is no wind. I purchased a brand new Suzuki 9.9 4 stroke long shaft and am preparing to install this Spring. Does anyone have experience with this and know how much vertical travel I should be looking for on a motor lift? I’ve been recommended a Garelick OB motor bracket 7. Any thoughts?
