    It has been done, but adjust your expectations appropriately. With very few exception, sailboat are displacement hulls. You would only want a 2-4 hp outboard because they will be very sensitive to stern weight. The conversions make reasonable open water duck hunting sneak boats, but they are not fast and they draft more than a flat or shallow mod v planing hulls.
