I started a thread about getting a dinghy to row around a small lake, and am unable to get one that is cheap and would fit more than 1-2 persons. I see a few outboard "boats" (boat + trailer) on facebook that look really good for 3-8k that would seat 5. But I understand that it comes with maintenance ....
One of the things that the posts keep saying is automatic transmission, manual transmission. I didn't even know there was transmission to be serviced! Thought the outboard is single speed.
Is there a boat that only has a rudder and a motor and therefore doesn't need much servicing?
Or all I need to do is remove the motor and bring it to the shop instead of having to tow the thing to the shop every 50 hrs use?! (Since boat is by a lake I don't plan to keep the WOF/Rego on the trailer)
Sorry I'm not even sure where to start asking the questions.
