Default What size engine for this boat?

The boat on the right is the one I've yet to get an engine for. The one on the left will have an Enya 19 in it (the boat is about 25" long) and the one on the right is about 40" long. What engine should I put in the larger launch? I'm looking for a glow engine that will make the boat move reasonably fast, but I don't want to put too much power in it as the boat isn't designed for speed and I don't know how it'll respond to the added power. Here's the boats:



Thanks.

Rob

Try to locate a Sport .40 engine for it. It's not a fast engine but should push the boat right along and are inexpensive.

Thanks. Quite tempted to have two SC12's in it. They've got pullstarts which would be good as I have difficulty starting engines and also the boat has been semi-converted for twin prop use. It could go either way. I'll keep looking, I'm not too urgent to get the engine as I'm working on two other boats at the moment and they're keeping me busy.
