Default Snow Boat??

Hi All,

I have a 23CC engine lying around and had an idea with winter coming up. Similar to a Zen engine but it's a Smartech brand and there's a few different mounts. Instead of a hovercraft I though about making a snow boat. Kinda like those Florida swamp boats but I'd use it for snow only. There's a few tihngs I wanted to ask.

1. I wanted to use a prop. Should I use a 2 or a 4 blade?
2. What prop size should I look at?
3. Will this set up be enought to push something 10- 15lbs on the snow?
