New here and looking for some advice in regards to a small speedboat i will picking up in a few days.
Basically, it isnt rib, which is why i posted it in here, but instead a pretty small fibreglass speed-boat. It needs a good bit of work done to it ie. paint, morse+steering controls and seats all need to be added to it.
Its pretty small so i dont want an outboard that is too heavy. I thought a nice 20hp would be nice but my freind is telling me something along the lines of a shortshaft 8hp would be more than enough to get it on the plain! Does this sound reasonable? also what outboard would you reccomend? ( hp wise and shaft length ie. short or long )
I am on a low budget so i will be buying second hand and ill probabaly be buying a two stroke.
Ill attatch a picture below.
*edit* I picked it up for £40. Does this sound OK? The guy was just going to keep it if i went lower, and i live in a rural area so the opertunity to buy a project like this for under £100 is pretty rare.
