modification to fit an outboard
I have seen an rl28 with a cutaway stern to allow freeflow of water when motoring.
I would very much like to contact him.

The cut away stern in the photo is more likely to be because the yacht had a long shaft outboard when the standard well is designed for a short shaft outboard. The standard well does not need the stern cut away.

Re: modification to fit an outboard
I was thinking of a small 100mm cut away to allow free flow of water and reduce the slop in the well motoring in heavy seas.However my poorly welded aluminium gudgeons tore apart (varelie was not built by Rob).
I saw a rl 28 with a large cutout spanned by gudgeon brackets.
This would allow the outboard to swivell to horizontal and facilitate fitting bomb doors while sailing.

Have a look at the outboard tilting bracket Peter Johannsen had made in the tips and modifications section
