What size engine for little SIB?
My wive has got it into her head to buy a little inflatable boat with engine, just for going for a poodle down the river, and maybe along the coast a bit.
Looking for something that we can deflate and put in the back of the car, so something less than 3m would be ideal.
In an ideal world, would like something that we could launch on the beach, somewhere like Cowes seafront, but then poodle just into the harbour and down the river.
My question, is that considering the tide can run at quite a rate into and out of the river mouth, what size engine would be required, to make sure we can go faster than the tide, whatever the tide state?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
