I just got a Hobie Getaway with the Cheata mount and Torqeedo 1003. I sail it on Lake Michigan, and I find I have to turn the motor sideways to clear the tiller bar when the mount is in the UP position.
But the motor doesn’t sit very high; so when the lake is even a little rough, the skeg and prop keep hitting the water and the motor is lifted up, and dropped back down. I’m afraid this is going to damage something from the constant pounding.
Has anyone else had this problem? If so, did you find a solution?
Yet another Bob!
