You dont need to go big to have fun. Agree about the seat . Have you thought about leaving the cool box and just take the seat off ?

Whats going to push it along?

Or just leave the cooler ? If the bench is fiitted over it wont it be a bugger to get the lid off ?

Which engine is newer ? I had an 8 Johnson - great little thing - not high tech but worked well for me .
