To the original question, we started with zodiac zoom and small 4hp mercury with the kids. Moved up to Zodiac 3.4 ActiV with 9.9 two stroke. Excellent for transport and moving around on launch wheels etc. Light. Kids now teenagers. Four of us plus dog. Still on the plane...

i dont think you need to go silly as you may not like it! but a 3.3m or 3m at a push with an 8 or 10hp should give plenty of fun , check out one of aj`s videos i`m not sure what he`s got but it`s a small sib with plenty of fun

if you keep an fleabay for a yam,mariner,merc,etc you`ll have no problem selling on

off to the lakes myself this weekend well carlisle anyway
As much fun as the RC585. It's a sunsport 2.9m airdeck with a tohatsu 9.8 2 stroke. Great fun would be even better if it was a short shaft but bought it as an aux for the rib

Hi Alfie.
I had the same question and ended up with a 3.3M Excel and a 9.8ho 2 stroke.
Great fun.
Do you know anything about board or outboards? Also yuo boat will need 25 registration plates, 15 for renewal after.

Hill of Oaks is great.
