HI are you going to keep this on a trailer or inflate when used?
Many years ago I had something similar we kept it inflated on a trailer, it had a 40 HP Mariner which would fly with 2 to 4 of you on it!
But 6 divers + kit you just chugged along no chance of getting on the plane.
Also a 40 HP is manageable for one person to lift!
Have you any photos?
Have fun!
Nick
