Which Trend for which boat?
Both motor types are specially designed for sailing boats and smaller dinghies. Having satisfactory reserves for wind and wave we recommend depending on the hull type the model Trend 1.1 up to 1.5tons, and Trend 1.6 up to 1.8tons.
Where and how should fixed pod motors be mounted?
Generally fixed pod motors are mounted between keel and ruder. Moreover, it is better that the motor is place closer to the keel than at the ruder. After the propeller there are hydrodynamics turbulences and therefore vibrations at the ruder can be the consequences. Furthermore, the motor is also positioned at the lee side from the keel and the motor has a lesser resistance. The fixed pod motors should be mounted parallel to the waterline for having the max. thrust. This is why Aquamot supply custom-made compensation wedges which are also vibration-dumping.
