We want the engine to have enough HP to pull a child on a knee board/rubber ring and make it exciting enough with 2 adults and another child in the boat.
Hopefully we can buy something 2nd hand that we are able to sell on next year without losing too much money.
Any help/advice would be really appreciated
Thanks in advance
I use my sib on Windermere, it's a really nice place, various places you can stop and get a pint and food, ice cream for the kids etc
The 10mph speed limit Is frustrating, and I have been caught speeding but just got a "severe warning" from the warden (nice guy, just doing his job)
I used to have a 10hp outboard on a honwave sib, that was fine for 2 adults/2 kids on Windermere, but I'd advise 25hp minimum if you plan on towing toys in the future
