How many people do you want to take? that will impact your engine choice.

I'd not paint it unless absolutely necessary. Painted tubes are not popular here, but on a sib will be problematic if folded up.

Try just thoroughly cleaning (fairy power spray a soft scourer and some elbow Grease) and the a wipe over with some spray gun thinners (gun wash) on a rag, you'll be amazed.

For inspiration go and read all the Gurnard posts and see what it's big brother gets up to!

They are stable I've got one. Think it's played to carry 6 yes. I have a 25hp but many run them with 10's.
