Default Powered work barge

Ihave had two Robbe Roqua outboard motors just sitting in a box since new and finally got the itch to use them. I was thinking of a semi-scale work barge. Since this is my first scratch build. I have not decided if I am using both of the motors yet. It will depend on the final design and the performance of the motors. 36-40 inches long with a beam of 12-14 is what I think will visually look right. If anyone has any ideas, or input I would greatly appreciate it.


Maybe something similar to this (but smaller in overal size when compared to the outboards)

Or this

Thanks, Dean

You could make a fairly large Pontoon boat. Side console, Canopy, Cooler, BBQ grill, Bikini Blondes, Solar cells, and so on.
