I have my Passagemaker sailboat about 2/3 built. I plan to use it on relatively open waters like the Hudson River and Long island Sound. I feel it would be wise to have some supplemental propulsion. The environmentalist in me says electric trolling motor, but the pragmatic side of me says 2 hp 4 cycle outboard. Does anyone have any thoughts or experience in these matters.
