Greece with its many islands has a coastline of thousands of kilometers and is therefore an ideal water sport country.

To be able to sail in Greek waters, you need an ICC Inland and coastal waters, or Small Boat License 2.
There must be at least two people on board with ICC inland and coastal waters.

I am just getting to this thread now. I've read it end to end. It contains a lot of valuable intel. Somewhere in the near future I will go through a similar process with my 25 hp Johnson mounted on a Wetback. You, as author, and those who have contributed to this thread have quite possibly saved me time, effort, money and frustration. Many thanks. Although it sounds like the 35 hp Evinrude might get binned, I look forward to similar discussions of this type.

Over this past short Xmas visit back to Ct we did a few improvements to the boat . We scrapped the original 1994 Johnson control cables that were 16 ft long for a pair of brand new 10' units . The improvement in the feel and movement of the of the levers was a noticeable improvement .
We also took three out of the four leafs in our trailer suspension out as it as originally designed for a 21 ft boat before we cut it down to our size . With the small amount of weight that our craft has compared to what it was designed for there was very little give over rough roads and the boat got bounced around a lot . With the one leaf it really does the job nicely .
The modification that i really was happy with was changing over to a smaller steering wheel. With the cramped quarters of the original 15 inch wheel sliding ones legs under the wheel and forward under the bow was a real squeeze . What most concerned me was that in the event of a needed quick escape from the boat or if there was a flip of some type having he lower body trapped under the wheel could lead to big problems . Its still tight , no doubt , but its a good deal better than before .
Looking forward to getting back out there in mid may and continue with the development .
