Max weight 125 kgs otherwise it will be unbalanced. Because of the narrow beam sadly there are inly a few decent hp outboards will suit.

I gather most Evinrudes under 60HP are less than 250lbs.

So it's looking like a year-long project for me...but on the list are the following:

Zodiac Rec Pro stand-up Console with Forward Jump seat and
Leaning post
InMar or AtlanticTower T-Top
Evinrude 50-60HP outboard
Icom VHF radio (currently carry a FindMeSpot GPS unit and an M36 Handheld)
(Maybe) an AtlanticTower A-frame.

I plan to take my little boy cruising with me once he gets a little older so i don't think i need a lot of bells and whistles other than what is necessary for safety.
