Default NEW TO BOATS, WICH ONE FOR A HOMELITE 35 CC??

HELOO GUYS:

I would like to try the boats world this summer. I have a lot of converted engines for airplanes and would like something new.
Time ago I saw in a shop a large boat with a marien gas engine. I would like to stay at the KISS principle and use the engine air cooled.
It is possible?
Also would like to know were to find a plan for a decent wood or fiberglass boat for a homelite 25 cc. a kind of sport scale one, may be like the enforcer or something, I´m not looking for a guiness speed record or something like that, just a fast and fun boat to share some time with my dad who runs a 1:1 boat business.
Any inputs ans specially pictures would be highly appreciated.
Thanks.

IT can cost you more if you build your own hull in money and time spent. I would recomend buying a hull already made.

no problem running air cooled but not like a plane engine would you need to keep the original shrouding ..... check out hookupz.net they got lots of aircooled engines and especially the 29cc stroker engine even in stock form its a runner......with mods its a "pondmonster".
as far as hulls goes dont get a huge hull like 70" unless you live on a lake they become burdens. somethin in tyhe 40 to 48" range even the 56" apache style is a good choice for "offshore" racing and wake jumpin......check out ebay......but check back here before you buy

I can mail you the frame plans (and the distance between them) of this one.

More pics in my gallery.

POMPEBLED:

Thanks for your offer.
I would like to have those plans.
please fell free to email the info at rlazoaraya@yahoo.com
If I can make a wood version then I would make a fiberglass mold in halves for future small and cheaper production.
I figure out that the engine should be mounted with the clutch included or the boat will be unstopable.

If anyone else have any infor, please, email me, I would appreciate any help.

searching at the web I liked the enforcer type of boats, the simplest one, the better. I would add some scale painting scheme.
