684Re: First time build
- May 27 8:25 PMJohn,
I have a 16 year old 5 HP Long shaft Nissan, and it is a real work
horse. It has been used on everything from a 9 foot dingy, a 13 foot
transom sterned canoe, to a 18 or 19 foot local "panga" here on lake
Nicaragua. On the heavy panga, loaded to the gunnells with fishing
nets and firewood it still moved right along on regular 18 km trips
"to the city".
All three boats you mentioned seem very suited, but I wouldn't be
afraid to put the 5 HP Nissan on Punch if that is the boat you really
want to build.
