my son and I are planning on building a mini airboat, but I could use some expert advice before we get started. We are thinking of a 5' bottom and 8' to 12' long and made out of 1/8" aluminum. my question is, would a 24 hp Honda 4 stroke horizontal shaft push this boat with 2 people and light gear? also where is a good place to buy small props and part? we are trying to keep the cost of the build as low as possible. any help would be greatly appreciated.
