Auxiliary Power

The 28 was originally available with either an inboard Atomic 4 or, for the budget minded, an outboard could be mounted in the well in the lazarette. The intent was to keep costs down but still to keep the outboard out of sight in a separate compartment. The lazarette is sealed from the interior of the boat.

When underway the motor can be removed to reduce drag and a plug (pictured below) inserted into the opening to stop water splashing in and to fair the bottom of the stern.

Even with the motor left in place the clean look of the stern is preserved.


still to come... the inboard version
